E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

depends. if you do freeway driving with your roof open then you will know why people are after them. they also are something that makes the car look a little different to every other E30.

sunroof deflectors are junk. i have one for sale and they are near impossible to sell. nobody wants them. they look awful no matter how you look at it.

i would have brought one, but then i brought the OEM roofracks instead and i dont think the two are compatable how high does it come up from the roof and how far across the sunroof does it go?

comes up about 2 - 2.5 inches at its highest point in the middle. should fit under a roof rack but it would be way too many extra parts on your roof at that point

i think the wing is okay, it just doesnt work when you have the long ass diving boards. tuck the bumpers, or do a euro swap. i was looking at getting one of those wings but it never came to anything.

Good, glad it didn't. It wouldn't look good with euro or plastic bumpers either.

So should I take the wing off?

I just put it on cause it came with it when I bought it...

And I thought it was pretty cool.

I say do what you think looks best. You can take the feedback and criticism from everyone, but ultimately you are the one who has to live with it and love it. So if you like the wing, keep it, but if not, then take it off. Personally, I dont think it fits, but my opinion doesnt matter.

Cheers

agreed.

everyone on this forum likes thier cars OEM or close too it, so if its not OEM they dont like it. you have to get used to it like i had to. your car - your decsion

i say keep on the condition you change your bumpers, and even then, id have to see. i dont think it would suit the vert though in any case.

Camera FINALLY arrived and is working so ill catch a few photos :

1/ new rear euro filler plate, new tow hitch
2/ new smileys
3/ Interior with my gearknob i was telling you about. i painted the speaker rings, they used to be silver, but im going to paint them silver again, and the work better with the theme in silver. same for the speakers on the parcel shelf. so imagine those in silver and youll see what i mean in that it ties in nicely. should have done a closeup to show the feel/texture is the same as the dash board... oh well youll have to take my word for it
4/ dyed parcel tray installed
5/ Showing the difference between my current carpet (argh!) and the dyed carpet still to be installed in the front section
