John, I won't hold you to it if you don't have time.

Sam, what are you doing with that black e30?

I am not sure i like the spoiler.
I would go for an Mtec 1 if i was you and paint the inner part same colour.
I always thought the Mtec1 was the best looking spoiler on E30!

I definately agree... like I said though, I'm short on time, otherwise I'd be all over the MT1. Especailly if I could find an e30 MT1 (not for $400), then I might make the effort. The e28 MT1 will find it's way onto the car one day.

Okay, a little update with a few pics. I chucked on a few more pieces from my stash. Husco armrest, glass moonroof, and the Euroweaves. I also put in a euro analog clock, and a drivers side sun visor with a vanity mirror (you don't have that sh!t). I need hte mirror on my side because I am vain. I don't really know how I have gone so long without an armrest... I f-ing love this thing. Ever since I owned the e34, I've missed having the armrest. The only thing is that it makes getting my Milli Vanilli and Cory Hart tapes out of the console tapeholder really difficult.

Mostly, I just wanted to follow up on the look of the OEM Pfeba aero package spoiler. Like I said before, I think it was just the perspective of the pics that I took that made it look out of place, because now when I look at the car out in the open, I think it look pretty good. I can feel the downforce and reduction in drag when I'm running over 200kph.

Car looks good!!! The glass sunroof is a nice addition, and not having an armrest sux. Too bad they look like such an after thought.

I've got another interior for it for winter... grey cloth sport, heated, ski pass and headrest in the rear, but I never actually put it in last winter. I don't know if I would actually sell one or the other though.

Yeah, except I wear a ball cap most of the time, so I can't actually notice a difference with the glass moonroof, except the rust showers have stopped. The armrest is a god-send. I don't care how it looks! I can't believe I've gone 8 or 9 years in an e30 without one.

LOL @ rust showers.. my old eta was horrible for that. Opening it on the highway was impossible without getting rust in your eyes.

I'd rock a moonroof if I could find one.

They're a great find, but what a PITA to adjust perfectly. When you do find time to adjust it, it starts raining. Lighter than the metal roofs too.

Nah, I can live with it, haha. They're on R3V all the time in California...

Actually, a few notes. You can't tell you have one unless you look right up at it. Also, it catches reflections of the dotted lines on the highway which I can see in my periferal vision. Kind of annoying. Always worried about the glue that holds the glass to the mounting bracket. Just waiting for the hot day on the highway for it to separate and blow right off the car and shatter into a million pieces.

Looks great Scott!!! oh I just did a funny.."GREAT SCOTT!!"
If you used Urethane on the brackets the glue will never separate. I was trying at some point to install mine and because there was some binding going on the bracket let up and came off. So I need a trim shop to glue it back down. I also may just remove both and drill the holes bigger to allow for better adjustment. My glass roof is in the museum. lol

the spoiler actually looks good after all. :-)
