Subject: <E30 rear window shattering
With regards to your rear window shattering:
I use to have an 87 325e until I sold it to my friend's brother. Well one
day, my friend tells me that the rear window shattered after he turned on
the rear window defroster. In the process, he heard a loud "pop". He
brought the car to the dealer and the dealer thought that was really
strange. The car was out of warranty by a long shot but the dealer said
he would call BMW to find out why this happened. As it turned out, BMW
said they would fix it even though it was out of warranty.
Who knows, maybe your dealer would be willing to bat for your window.
