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

aftermarket sunroof

Has anyone ever replaced the OEM manual crank sunroof with a simple tilt up aftermarket glass see thru sunroof. the one in my 87 325 needs new cables, and I never really liked the crank open system.

Some other models have glass sun roofs, but you would have to check for curvature etc..

everything about the sunroofs are easy to replace, never heard of the cables going bad but as suggested above converting to automatic is easy
