Good looking car, nice find! Body looks clean and straight, and the swap to the classic basketweave wheels looks great with the delphin grey.

E28's are getting so rare to see now, I'll bet you get a lot of compliments.

What's the ferris wheel looking architecture in the last pic? Cheers

I always enjoy seeing people on the road looking at my car and sometimes getting a thumbs up.

That architecture is the atomium in Brussels, Belgium

Here in Belgium there are very few E28's, a few months ago I was at an classic car meeting where there were 2 other E28's.
