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

droopy sun visor fix?

Does anyone know a fix for a sun visor that won't sit flush against the roof any more?
(sorry to sound picky, but I'm hoping to avoid visible velcro strips)

Thanks,
Simon

I just pulled mine out a couple days ago to see if I could fix it. According to RealOEM, only the passenger side is still available, which is the one I need, but frankly, I need other parts more and my budget can only handle so much at this point. I'm going to tackle mine again in the next couple days and see what I can manage. I, too, will post findings.

Well if it's driver's side (for Australia, anyway) you should be in luck as far as availability. We're out of them now but typically they are $125.95. More expected in June. Left side sun visors are discontinued. Mine was droopy and I grabbed one from a parts car a coworker had that was good.

Hmmmm, since it's usually only the drivers side which wears out, the parts cars here would have non-droopy left side visors and vice-versa in LHD countries. Sounds like a business opportunity for an international trade in used sunvisors!

I've replaced two of them and both I found on eBay for $25 or less. Just gotta find the ones in good condition (no cracked vinyl or rusty metal).
