The idea seemed pretty simple at the time for Mr. Jendy, take the BMW E28 that he had bought, give it a tidy up and moved some other goodies from another E28s that he already had as a donor car. Fast forward some couple years later and Jendy can’t help himself to not upgrading the heart of this lady. Jendy told us that he lucky enough to bought this car with decent condition and price.
It could be argued that the E28 was as important to BMW as the iPod was to Apple. It set a tone, an approach, and it consolidated public perception about what it meant to be a BMW. It was a damn good car, besides the legendary E21 3 series model. Produced from 1982, this generation (the second) was the longest-lived by a fair chunk. It started out by the luxury sedan model. Looks-wise, there’s still something about it even now, a streamlined timelessness. It wouldn’t be hard to imagine it coming out today looking exactly like this, and people would still love it and buy it.
We started our happy week at that time by waiting Jendy to come to our preferred location. As usual, it was always been a fun time together to spent your week with a classic-minded enthusiast like Jendy. When Jendy arrived, we directly asked him to following us to the photoshoot place. We have been his admirer for his creation and determination on one of our most favourite BMW platform ever, the BMW E28 series. As many people said, picture don’t do justice, we had staggering moment to saw this lady live in front of us. A blue E28, with Alpina’s attributes, who can resist it?
With a hands of Rudy from RDM Garage, Jendy wanted this car turned into an occasionaly a track car. Then Rudy began his build to upgrade the stock engine with a stroker kit from 3.0 engine, including the crankshaft. He upgraded the brakes from E32 which is bigger size than it’s original brakes to ensure the pin point braking. Jenny also showing his loves toward Alpina tuner. It is almost impossible to find real Alpina E28, then what Jendy had done is to replicate the visual Alpina looks on her. From the Alpina wheels, kits, interior pieces, and all badges. It comes together nicely. We’d like to share with you our experience during this shot, and hopefully you could adoring this car like we did.
