Convertible hardtop rear windshield replacement

Anyone know if it's possible to replace the rear windshield on an e30 removable hardtop? long story short i busted mine into a zillion pieces and i'm trying to figure out if it can be replaced for a decent price or if i should just cry about it...

That suck... I've got my two hardtops stored upright on the same cart and I'm always worried about them tipping over and breaking the glass... but you can totally swap out the glass.... for over $400 from the stealership. Good luck finding a used piece. Crying is recommended.

Should be PN# 51311942920

cool i tried looking up the part # but couldn't find it.. any idea if there are any 3rd party glass places that could replace it?
lol i was literally in tears when i was sweeping up in my garage...

i think i'll just leave the top on storage for now.. and focus on replacing the softtop since she really only comes out in the sun

You could call Fil at Eurostyle... He's got a hardtop in rough shape he would probably give you a deal on. I don't know if anyone would be able to do an aftermarket one, at least not with the defrost bands.
