Cars of the Month

The Car of the Month for October belongs to:
Michael Sherrill




  • Model: E12 528i

  • Date: 1980

  • Exterior Color: Arktisblau (Arctic blue)



  • The Overview
    Michael's car is the basic USA issue 528i, 5-speed, with period-correct upgrades such as 16 inch BBS wheels, Euro Head lights and Recaro sport seats. He has added the 320i intake runners for that little extra boost. An excellent example of an E12 with only 115K miles.






    Nearly stock 528i 5 speed, roams the Southern California area.




    Immaculate body and paint, no sun roof.
    Brake lights were converted to LEDs, as were many interior lights.
    Michael also found a rear deck from an 85 528e with the premium speakers which he re-upholstered and replaced the original flat deck with.




    This is a clean car, inside and out.
    Note the Recaro sport seats and aftermarket steering wheel.




    Sporty BBS wheels, E28 side mirrors.




    Healthy rubbers are a nice final touch.
