Fun E28 as a daily (CAtuned car)

Igor Polishchuk


I picked this e28 up about 3 years ago here in Sacramento, CA. It needed love and attention.

It was rough inside and out. It leaked and it begged for help. I got the tired M20 running but the auto transmission had lots of issues and the M20 was leaking more then running. So the thought came about to make it a nice daily driver. But the timing was wrong. So it just sat waiting for the right moment. Well about a year ago I finally did it. We just about replaced everything we could mechanically and made it so much better then the car had been in years. With modern coilover suspension, upgraded brakes, modern stereo w/ bluetooth and the list goes on and on and on.

Here are some pictures of the car and in how it looks today. I’ve had a lot of fun driving this thing around everywhere!
