PIcking up a new Dash

found a mint dash nearby.. havent won the auction yet but hopefully i will. anyways, are there any products or treatments that people have experienced/recommend to help prevent the dash from cracking? my windows are tinted.. but the windscreen is illegal to tint here though i might put a 95% tint on anyways.. i dont think it will be noticed but it will help at least

get one of those reflective visors to put in your windshield when you aren't driving. They keep the car nice and cool too; everyone here in texas uses them.

The E30 is what all actual driving enthusiasts are after. It's an unpretentious machine, quietly capable of spectacular feats of handling. It's light, simple design is rugged enough to run against $400k rally cars, but on the street it' communicative chassis delights even the most disinterested driver. It really is one of the world's ultimate driving machines

IMO the Armor All gloss look sucks, most of these treatments will further dry out your dash, attracts dust, and the doesn't protect at all.

thats not what i want to do! my car is black and tinted out windows so it can get pretty hot in there! i have to leave the sun roof open during summer when im parked up for more than a few hours! so i need something that will keep it "wet" as oposed to drying out
