Top Gear look at the e28 in 1991

Post by e12euro »

In some export countries like Britain the 5 series is looked upon as a prestige, luxury car. So even though they have a high cost of gas, and have to settle for small engined versions, they don't like the very plain spec of Continental BMWs (like the 1502), and unlike America over 50% of M30 powered e12s and e28s had automatic transmission. Obviously the 528/528i was seen as an alternative to a Jag XJ6.
