ROB89M3, when you say sunroof panel, is that the entire sunroof, or just the outside body-metal portion? The sunroof on my 89 325ix is rusting and some parts (hinges?) have rusted completely off, preventing the roof from opening/closing properly. Please let me know either way. Thanks! *wave*

It is just the metal panel.How bad is the rust ?

Does the panel have what looks like hinges attached? There's sub-surface rust bubbling all over but more importantly these hinges I mention fell off not too long ago and now my roof sags really bad when closed (one back corner sits about 1" below the roof line). *mumble*

If the panel isn't going to help, then I suppose I'll need a complete sunroof assembly. :confused: Anybody parting out an E30?

here is a quick pick...It has very minor surface rust that can be sandblasted away.

That looks interesting. Is there any rust forming around the hinges? Ideally, I'm looking for a red one, but I'll definitely keep yours in mind if I can't find exactly what I want any time soon. *th-up*
