From one who has a large front gap and is damned proud of it, that second pic is great!!!

Those are some good pictures, but there's just one problem. The top is up!

Seriously, can't wait to see it a little lower, but I love it as is! Where'd you get the Alpina wheels?

The "is" spoiler would make that gap smaller.

I happened upon some springs that are the part # that was used on the m-tech cabrio. They were supposed to be off a E30 M3, but from what I can tell, that part # was never used on the E30 M3. I like where mine is sitting now.

Top down. There we go...

My bro and I had a '92 325 convert that had been abused (girl cut the rear window out to get her surfboard in) and it had so many holes in the roof that you stayed drier by keeping the top down in the rain than by raising it. You could go as slow as 25 mph and still stay dry as a bone. Ergo, that top stayed down 24/7.

8 years ago I bought this cabrio, and now it's time to sell it.
Sad.

I'll be listing it locally on the BMW Pugetsound forum first, and on here.

June 2008 - June 2016 ...

Did you find something newer, or are you just not driving it as much?

I've had my '88 since 2004 and still driving it several times a week. I've got a newer E90 sedan, but the E30 is just plain fun to drive.
