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

Basket Weave or Bottle Cap Alloys?

Hi all,

I'm interested in your opinion on changing my bottle cap alloy rims to basket weaves on my e30 convertible.

Here's the question:

Which style looks better on the convertible and why?

Thank you!

Basketweaves definitely. But the Borbet Type B (I believe they're called) aftermarket rims look better still.

Bottlecaps! I don't like the 14" basketweaves - its too busy of rim with a lot of rubber around it. 15" or above, basketweaves look fine.

Basketweave for sure! As it can go underwater with no problems.
