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

Little hints of the fabric is nice. Shift boot, e-brake boot + wheel will be just right. I say you keep your dash nice and simple so that your $$ pieces will stand out.

You can google it. A few people have DIY's on how to fix dash cracks. I think replacing the dash is just a little north of 100 dollars if you do it yourself.

They are sold on the forums a lot. It's a matter of just cruising the for sale section. As I recall you can still get them from dealers too. But it might be harder in South Africa.
