E12 M535i Replica

Post by Classicbmwparts »

Hello Everybody,

I'm a new member on this forum, my name is Willem Kapteijn and I am the owner of classicbmwparts.nl

I'm working on a lot of E12 "things" like reproducing of parts that BMW cannot supply anymore. At the moment we are for example working on a repro of the 535i front grill emblem an a repro of the M535i rear bootspoiler. Besides this we work in our spare time at our M535i replica. This car (original a 525) is Polaris with blue interior and has some nice options like rear headrests, a sunroof, central locking etc. The original engine has been removed and a M30B35 with Motronic is fitted. Also a stainless steel exhaust is fitted with an 6-2 spaghetti downpipe. At the moment we are working at the body (front wings, bottom, jacking points). I will post some more later on about the progress of this project.

Most welcome! And a nice project.
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.
