Bumping this schnanigans up!

Car has the M50 in it and is getting some love over the winter/spring. Here's what I did today.

Old



New



I had to literally cut the old one out, the roof wouldn't open. The E30 sunroof is the biggest pain in the ass ever!

Also, slapped on a new trunk and spoiler with Scott last night



And for good measures

I had to cut it out because it wouldn't open. It would tilt up but only so much, so I had to hacksaw off what was left of the mouting tabs.

Your car looks great. I can't believe you got it for $300. I bought mine for $100 and did so much work to get it even driveable...my new interior alone cost me more than you paid for your whole car!

Great deal, good for you!!

Thanks.

I just put the tail lights back in. I'm slowly hoarding parts.
