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.

Replacing Convertible top

Any Recommendations on the glue I should use? This is my first time doing this, I got a video on the how to on this, but Not sure what brand or sealant I should purchase. Any Help would be grateful.

Could you let us know how hard it is after it is done? Also where did you buy your top from? I only ask becaus I to need to do mine, and was considering doing my own, but have never done one before so I am a bit nervous. I am a mechanic so I have years working on cars and am comfortable doing so, but have never worked on convertible tops.
