Because you're running a true coilover rear you might want to fit spreader plates on the rear turret top. I think Z3 ones might fit and they're cheap and easy to source on eBay. Love E28 and you guys might like my project #bmw16v02 which is a '71 BMW 1602 with coilover, LSD and an M44/1.9 on ITB with 180+ bhp. 😎 ETA - You did a great job backdating the Alpina rims. They look perfect.

Had an '88 528e and an '83 533i 5 speed. Both were as good as gold, comfortable and poised always. Would make a great drift platform. I could never gut the ox blood red leather from the 83. It was quite a car then and now. ❤ The Javelin is cool af

Great video, not as low as I was expecting, my m54 swap e28 is on 17" BBS with h&r springs / bilstein dampers and looks about the same amount of drop. Was considering coilovers but not sure now....

Everyone on these vlogs so far seem like actual friends just trying to help each other improve their cars and trying to have fun while doing it. Awesome to see when so many other channels try to lazily force working on cars as just a ‘cool car guy thing to do’.

This is far far better than regular car throttle. Which is looking very tired lately. Milking the same thing

Agreed. When it starts to become a tv show rather than a bit ad hoc and a laugh, it starts to lose its magic. I understand they have to take it seriously as it’s a business/living but this separate channel is personally what I love most about YouTube. Just people sharing their passion with absolutely no pretense, seems harder to come by these days.
