    Parts interchange

    I am new to the E28 M5 world. Can anyone tell me if body parts, such as hood, fender, radiator mounts, etc. from an E28 are interchangeable with the E28 M5? Also, where is a good outlet for parts for the E28 M5?

    TIA

    Most all the body parts are interchangable between

    the different model E28's. Depends on the parts you are looking for as to the best supplier. Steve Haygood over in Georgia is always reliable for quality parts at a competitive prices and stands behind what he sells.

    Thanx for the input. I was under the same impression, but just wanted to be sure.

    Incidentally, I checked RealOEM part numbers for the radiator and found that the numbers for the 528/535/M5 are all different. Is this because of the capacity of the radiator or because of its size/shape?

    Re: regarding radiator, could be water hose connetions

    I just look at it from pwower outputs; the more power - the more fuel required, the more waste heat generated, the bigger radiator you need to do it

    also, the M5 is likely to be driven harder than a 535 so BMW would have upped the radiator capacity for the power hike and added a safety margin for greater sustained heat loadings

    or do the 535 and M5 radiators look like they have similar dimensions?
