My 928 is mostly stock, with the exception of 17x7.5 and 17x9.5 Cup 1 rims with 235/45 and 275/40 tyres. I have deleted the mechanically driven cooling ... Show morefan, and replaced with a couple of Spal units with an electronic controller. In the interior, I have a Momo shifter and steering wheel.It is a Euro model, because I live in europe! It has the 310hp 4.7 16V V8 engine, with no cats from the factory, and also a smog pump delete.What makes my 928 a little bit special is the colour and interior. Its a specially ordered colour from the factory, a very expensive option in its day. Its called 'Montego Schwarz Metallic' which is actually a VW/Audi colour used in the 1984 model year Audi quattro's.It also has the specially ordered interior combination of black leather with red piping.Stereo wise, I have a Infinity kappa's up front, with Focals in the rear, with a CDT sub, driven off a Steg 6 channel amp. Have an older Pioneer cassette headunit with 6 cd changer. To be honest though, this setup might as well be stock, you cant hear the sound over the rumble of the V8 Show Less
Update:Well, time has nearly come to say goodbye to this fine car.... I need to focus my attentions on other projects.I've had this car for around 5 or 6... Show more years now, and its completely been transformed. My friends and I were joking the other day that every part has been replaced or changed. Actually, nearly everything has been!I'm just in the process of finishing painting the rear end. The panel under the rear windshield was rotten as normal on these cars, and needed replacement. I replaced the panel with a new original factory piece, and I've sourced a new invisible wire rear windshield and new seal, along with a new trunk lid and trunk seal.Just also finished converting the manual seats to electric, replaced all broken and worn springs in the seats, and having the worn piping replaced with new.The cruise control unit has been newly rebuilt, but I've yet to test it. I have LED lamps in the tail lights, and the cruise control refuses to operate with these.Oh yeah, and the A/C works great, and is ice cold!Anyway, if you are interested in purchasing this car, send me a message and i'll let you know when it's 'done' and ready for sale.----------------------------Here is my car, it started out as a basic Euro 500 SEL. It had a grey velour interior, and bundt cake wheels. I payed £80 originally for the car (about $150 US)Now it's quite transformed! I think the main difference is the SEC nose conversion. I did all of the work myself, and it wasn't an easy task! I also upgraded the engine to a 'Euro' M117 5.6 V8, with high output option. I also have deleted the mechanical fans and water pump in favour of their more efficient electric counterparts.The wheels are OZ racing Futura, in 8.5x17, with 13mm offset. Tyres are Pirelli 255/40 and 235/45. I do have the centre caps for these too now, visible in the third picture.Suspension wise, I upgraded the shocks to GAZ adjustable units, and also installed K-Mac rear trailing arm bushes. My camber was way out before, I was getting around 5000 miles from a set of rear tyres!Other misc upgrades include Leather interior, HID headlights, larger 560 front brakes, tri-Y headers and brand new 560 exhaust system, smoked lights all around, LED tail lights, bumper chrome delete, and in the process of deleting it around the windows too. Lots more to do as time permits. Show Less
I wasnt really looking for an e32 when I bought this car, I already had a 7 series, a 1982 e23 735i, which was my weekend car. I was after a 635 or m6, but t... Show moreo find one in good condition for the money I wanted to pay didnt seem to happen. They all seemed to be rusty heaps with all the usual problems, noisy cam, rust everywhere mainly front wings etc.. Then I found this clean 750i advertised on the autotrader for reasonable money. Took a trip to the dealer selling it, and the moment I saw it, I knew it was the one! Diamond metallic black, black leather 12 way power sports seats, AC, cruise, computer, its got the lot. Its the short wheel base version too, the i and not the iL, which makes is reasonably rare.
Things gone wrong so far.. HT leads needed replacing, both distributor caps/arms, plugs, belts, all steering components except box, battery etc..
I have upgraded the suspension with Bilstein B8 Sprint shocks and KAW springs which give 55mm lowering up front and 35 to the rear. Have not yet fitted the rear springs and shocks yet because of the self levelling system currently on the rear of the '50. I need to get around to plugging the rear accumulators and replacing the set up.
Also got a set of Borbet A rims in 8.5x17 with 235/45 at the front and 255/40 to the rear, Dunlop SP Sport 8000 all round.
I also installed a set of 3 sports ecu chips, they removed the 155 mph limiter and also gave me approx 30 bhp and 35 Nm torque.
The other things ive done include Installation of the sound system and replaced corner and marker lights with clear/smoked units.
Not me, but the 750 sure has potential! Show Less
