The e28 especially lookes "right." The small rear fixed e12 glass looks busy on the early, but with a different window shape or just blacked out trim-wow!

Makes you wonder why they didn't make it. After all, why does a 2 dr 3 Series make more sense than a 2 dr 5 Series?

MB has made a successful series of coupes of their 4 dr models for years in the 115/123/126 chassis. I'm sure it wouldn't have affected 6 sales any, since the 2 dr e28 would be more of a 2dr sedan, anyway.



I love my 630, but for pure driving pleasure, I'll take my 528i or e any day. I just happen to prefer two doors.

So, how much do you think it would cost to move the center post back 6 inches and lengthen the front doors accordingly on these renditions of e12 and e28 coupes. Anyone game?

(Ready for the flames!!)
