Is this a good reason to get rid of my e30??

I'm devastated.

It's the first one.

Bow down to the almighty person who thinks they're so awesome for having a single tiny crack in the dash. Does this make me cool because my e30 dash has only one crack and it's the same size?

You guys are hilarious

Anyway of preventing these cracks? I never use chemicals to clean the dash, just water and a towel. It's usually parked in a underground parking structure or under a tree. I usually leave the sunroof in tilt on hot days

only way to prevent the cracks, keep it in a garage for its entire life. dont drive it just admire it.

or change it later down the road

No thanks, I'm proud to have a non-garaged queen.
