Ok, my girlfriend and I are shopping for a car for her.

One of the car's she likes is an E30 convertible. Are there any issues with them.....like do they suck in the winter, how noisy is the interior, do the tops tear in certain spots, etc, etc.

Sorry off-topic... So do u know what set-up that cabrio has? I`ve been looking for a lowering-kit also for my cabrio but have`nt decided on anything yet. Maybe FK-automotive coilovers... :rolleyes: I wan`t to go real low!*mw*

Back to the question. I`ve owned my cabrio for about one year now and can`t say anything bad about it. If you have same kind of shitty winters there as we do here and you`re planning to drive in the winter, it would be wise to get a hard-top.

they do have water problems in the rain. Mine has it and most other e30 convertibles has it too. When the car`s standing still in the rain it leaks at the 2 corners where the top lies on the windshield. And the water also gets inside at the sides, just behind the left rear window there`s a little gap, so the water goes inside and goes into the box where you fold the top in and from there it goes to the rear seats.
I have this problem with the softtop and the hardtop, so I`m gonna replace all the rubbers, maybe it`ll get better.
but I`ve been told by experienced guys that most of the convertibles have this problems.

If all the rubbers are in good shape, they`re not gonna let water thru. Mine is also leaking a little bit from the front, upper corner of the window, but that`s only because the rubber on the roof is fu***d up. Mine has never, no matter how hard it`s been raining, let any water in between the rear windows or nowhere else for that matter.
