BMW E28 Five Series - Optional Extras

It was amazing how little BMWs came with as standard in the 1980s. On something like a 520i there was no radio, floor mats, fog lamps or electric windows. If you did have electric windows they might still be manual in the back. A sunroof was optional (I think around 850 pounds!) but in practice few cars were sold without them. Aircon and cruise control were very rare even on a 535i.
