Yeah it is just an "i" I'm glad it's there, I think the car looks better with. The more I drive her, the more I like her.

Thank you. I just got the hard top and was all excited. (way harder to find than I ever imagined)

Took me a little while to figure out how to put it on too. The instructions were in German. (not that I would have read them had they been in English)

I also have a 92 325i convertible. The front air dams are standard equipment for the 91 & 92. According to my mechanic, because BMW was transitioning to the new body style, and they knew this would greatly hurt sales, they made the sport package(or atleast some of it) standard on their convertibles. This with their power top feature, improved bumpers, tail lights, and an air bag equiped steering wheel were all the special additions you would get.

BTW, the power top is notorious in the e30. The single motor is overloaded with its duties of lifting the top, and will go out over time. A simple fix for that is to remove the bar that connects the motor to the top underneath the lid. This will still alow you to lift and lower the lid, and you can stow and unstow the top manually. After replacing that motor twice, I took my mechanics advice and removed said bar and vuala!

Hope that helps. Congratulations on your car! 92's are extremly rare. Many databases dont even agnowledge their existance!

Are you ever going to black out the kidney grilles and window trim?

I really think after that your car would be complete.

Oh and a rear wing delete.

I'd be going for that sort of stance-ish look.

LOL never blacking out the kidney, makes it look like a VW, but I will be shadowlining the window trim. The rear wing stays and this is not a" stance car" the rear is lifted 15mm and I'm actually in the process of cutting up the body so I dont have my tires rub when I floor it or do a u-turn. Function>form, preview of whats to come
