Sad to sell this real driver's car but I now work for a motor group with access to a company car so the wife says it's time to sell.

The rear-wheel drive 528i is a joy to drive and gets mates jealous. Makes a great wedding car.

It's also practical - the boot looks small from the outside but is huge as it goes so far back and there's heaps of legroom inside.

Comes with the original BMW tool kit (I think it's just missing a spanner) and a BMW first-aid kit that under the passenger seat.

The tape-deck and radio stereo no longer worked so I've fitted a premium Sony head-unit with USB (just stick your USB flash drive in there). Unlike many people that replace the radio unit, I re-attached the on-board computer which now sits in the glove box. Really good for monitoring fuel consumption (which averages between 10 to 12 litres per 100km depending on your driving).

From a review back in 1996:

"It's difficult to think of any one single aspect that hasn't been improved in the new model and the 528i tested not only exudes quality and strength, but also provides levels of driving satisfaction that label it an enthusiast's delight.

The range of safety equipment is impressive, as is the performance, handling, steering and braking."
