    About the e30 convertible.

    There are many cabrio owners here that have questions and concerns. How about we have a thread that contains information about some of the main topics on one thread. Sure, we can all search but we all dont but lets keep it all on one thread.

    Lets start with a set of actual BMW videos.




    I would also like some help from some members that I have little info about...swapping from power top to manual top. Does anybody have a writeup on how its done?

    Another useful link I use often has been http://www.e30ic.com/default.htm

    Sticky? Maybe. But I will update this first page and keep as many facts on cabrios as possible. Anybody else have any input?

    Needing new leathers!
    I bought these seats from leatherseats.com for my MT2 project and thought they were wonderful. I do recommend as they have several options including full leather/leatherette, two tone, or even front or back. Give them a call and they will help you out as they have done for me. My turn around was about 3 weeks. If you need a swatch, they will do that as well. I bought mine thru ebay. Here is mine installed.

    Definitely should be sticky'd! I'll be on the lookout for more info to post. Maybe I have some stuff in the manuals that might be helpful.

      Very cool and informative, I was wondering about the window adjustments and what the process was.
      Thanks

        Excellent idea. Just got my Mtech vert and the power top and lid both work, but top doesn't fold properly :-(

        I want a nice set of smoked MHW's (I know, get it line)

            You might need tension straps if its not folding right but everything else works.

                It depends on were its not properly folding. If its in the fabric, yes, possible straps but like mine, my window folds weird to the point it may crack the plastic if I wasn't careful and fold it correctly. This is not a strap problem.

                  Anyone try Raceland's windblocker? I'm thinking about ordering one, but would like to see if anyone has reviews on it.

                    This videos show how to adjust the toneau cover? Mine takes a little effort to latch.

                      I've got a Windblokker...

                      It's awesome, kills almost all of the wind and you can't beat the price.

                        If you have any pix mounted, that would help this thread. :up:

                          Definitely. Could possibly pull the trigger on it this weekend.

                              I have a DIY on adjusting your windows, but I'm waiting till I get my new top on in a few weeks before I finish editing it.
