BMW’s E28 M5 gets the Petrolicious treatment

BMW E28 M5
This new video from Petrolicious looks at Randy Balingit-Hartmann and his much-travelled E28 BMW M5.

Purchased in 1989, it was one of the first M5s to arrive in San Diego and Randy has owned it since day one covering an astonishing 400,000 miles with no mechanical issues.

North American cars used the 191 kW (256 hp) S38B35 3.5-litre six-cylinder engine equipped with a catalytic converter, which allowed a sub-7 second sprint to 100 km/h and 238 km/h (148 mph) top speed.

This particular E28 has had some upgrades carried out to such areas as the engine, suspension and wheels, but Randy says he has plans to return it to a more stock configuration now that he’s getting a little older.

He’d also like to be buried in it…
