Truly spectacular use of 3? Euro BMW E28 Police cars. Great early (`82-`84) example E28's (notice the nicer front air-dam compared to later `85-`88 models, and the early chrome wheel covers). Could be a 518i, 520i, or 525e. Amazing stunts and aggressive driving! A spin-out or two, fish-tails, etc. These early, small-engined E28's sure do over-steer. Worth seeing! The chase last about 3-5 min. max.

According to "Junkman" the Bavarian police used 525's, and never had 518's. So I'd say it's a 525i.

Here is a video-link to this chase scene with the E28 Polizei Autos:

I just looked at this scene: when one of the E28's spins around from reverse, you can see "518" on the trunk lid. Odd it doesn't say "518i". Perhaps one of the cars was a 518, and the others were 525's or 520's. Who knows.

I think that they actually aren't 525i. I've seen also this scene and we can read "518" on one of them. Then, those seem wheels of a 518 (carburettors or injection) or a 520i.

Theese cars were used by the west german police to chase Bond on his way to a american air force base.

"N" would be Nurnburg IIRC....would be a long chase,as most USAF bases were quite a bit West of Bavaria?(Hessen,Rheinland-Pfalz,Saarland) Was an -Army- airfield or two in Bavaria,though?? (Like Ansbach)

@Buc: don't trust in that plate. It's a fake. N for Nürnberg is correct, also the combinations only with a number - but police-cars never hat numbers starting with "6". Usually they had a "3", sometimes a "7"

Sure, as it's just a lame 518.

Does this BMW have air conditioning?

At this time I'd say it would be unlikely. It certainly wouldn't be something fitted as standard to the car.

It was in Germany extremely rare back then. And never in/for police cars. Uusally they have the lowest trim-line. Sometimes stronger engines, but never any luxoury for the passengers
