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

1990 325i Front Passenger Seat Belt Issue

Not sure what is going on, but the passenger side seat belt in the front will neither retract or extend anymore. Time is my biggest enemy right now, I only have one day a week to get anything done on the car.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

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

Well, I got the replacements the other day, and I was finally able to get the passenger side installed. The replacements had to be modified a tad since they were not an exact replacement of the originals.

Necessity is the mother of invention.
