Pics: South African red E28 M5



G'day from Melbourne Gustav, and thanks for the update. Here are some pix of my own M5 ... South African built, number five of the 96 built with serial
number 001017 etched on all the glass, henna red with light grey "full
leather" (even the dash top) interior, 1987 build, imported to Australia
privately in 1996 (this model was not officially imported by BMW Australia),
45000 kms (28000 miles) to date from new.
It's Ok to put this on the site if you wish.

Kind regards, Stewart XXXX

Definitely one of the cleanest E28 M5 I've seen so far.

So did this car also have the M Motorsport VIN number like the ones made in Germany? (Even though it wasn’t made at the same location as its German equivalent)

Performance: Kelleners Camshafts & ECU Remapping,GruppeM Filter Ram Charger,Supersprint Metal-Kat & Center pipe,SS Rear exhaust

No, it doesn't. It does have the 001017 serial number etched on all the glass, but no definitive build plate or number. Apart from a new fuel tank (I have the original) to comply with Australian design regulations on import, a new boot floor mat and new tyres, the car is exactly as it left the factory. There are even still traces of the plastic used to cover the seats showing in the back. Stewart

Thank you, we really are quite proud of the car as it is exceptionally rare here. As they were never "officially" imported, we believe there is only four in Australia, and probably none as good as this. I'll post some pix of it shortly. S

Re: Pics: South African red E28 M5



As a regular visitor and a friend of Raymond Woertman I have also seen the post
on that red M-Tech E28 M5.

I don't want to spoil anyones' fun, that's why I pass you my thoughts by e-mail
instead of posting on the board.

E28 chassis 001017 is in fact BMW production number 2001017. That is (according
to ETK) not a M5 but a SA version of the 535i, probably a M535i. So that means
it doesn't have the M88 B35 powerplant but the M30 B35 unit. In Europa it has
218 BHP (non cat) but I'm not sure if that's the same for SA.

Just wanted to share this with you, best regards,
Jeroen
