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.

Has anyone taking on this task? is this a do it yourself project? I have friend that needs to replace their top. The top can be purchased at Bavarian Auto for just under $600.00.

Not a DIY, but more of a PITA. Pay someone to do it. Should run ya around $400, but it's well worth it to have it done by a qualified shop.

You sparked my curiosity, so I did a little research. It seems doable, just requires patience and planning!


Neat little thread discussing instructional options and showing nice DIY results:
