    hi,


    I found this for e30 sedan. i believe it is imported from Taiwan/China.I am considering to try it myself but still asking around for reviews from my friends. also idk if its plug and play or you need to adhesive to connect it together but by the looks of it hopefully its plug and play.


    theres a lot of cheap option here in my country, last time i replace my trunk rubber, it only cost me under 30$ but idk if it will last long enough. nevertheless, it would not hurt to try.

        to make the AMAZON door seal work smoothly you need the holes as I mentioned before so I went ahead and made some holes to the seals I got and this is how you make the holes

          can anyone confirm the exact length of the 2 door seals? There's a 13 foot option on amazon, is that long enough?

              Hey guys, any updates on reproducing the original seals? With the cloth lining? Would love a set for my 2-door.

                I was just looking at those ebay seal kits... but I think I'll go the Amazon route. Thank you to all who have posted here, this is really valuable information. I tried cutting my original seals, stretching them into the corners, and filling the gap with some donor material from another door seal, but I'm still getting some wind noise and I think its because the original seal "bulb" also compressed over time and isn't snug on the surface of the door. When I end up doing the amazon seals I'll post an update too.

                  Just to update - turkish seals have had 0 issues, no leaks and were easy to install.

                  Car sits outside in the snow, rain etc.
