    E30 Rocker Panel Molding

    Hey All! Just hoping to pick your brains on the rocker panel molding for the Vert. I have been having a super tough time finding used parts and genuine parts are about $140/side. I was originally planning on doing skirts, but may stick with the more stock look. Has anyone used a more generic option? I was looking into... https://www.customautotrim.com/body-side-moldings/body-side-moldings/mdg108/9/

    E30 Rocker Panel Molding

    That's what I was concerned about too. I don't want it to come out ugly I did find similar stuff on Amazon for half the price, so I may jut pick it up and see. It may be a decent temporary fix while I look for genuine. It's tough to hunt down used parts for verts and the guys working at junk yards are less than helpful over the phone. I called my local yard and they told me they didn't have any BMW's in that age range only for me to go out there and find 5, 1 being a vert.

    House & Kids ate 100% what have kept me from the rig all winter.

    Any big winter projects?

    Hey All, Just wondering if anyone has any big projects going on this winter? I've been too busy to work on the car so far, but am hoping to get at it in the next couple months! I was able to get a nice lift kit put in! HAHAHA

    That's pretty optimistic! I figure the weather won't turn until April!

    I haven't been real active on the site lately! Where is the E30 picnic? I was out of town for the Devils Lake Cruise last fall and was pretty bummed. Most of my stuff is all cosmetic (having a tough time hunting down parts and finding the $$ for it) and some goofy wiring issues.

    Sounds like a big job! Think you'll have it done by summer? Have the project link. Just wondering if anyone had anything specific going on right now to get their rigs ready for summer.

    HOT TUB E30 VERT

    I am all about the grass body panels and the grill. Drive that beast to Lambeau for a tailgate.

    Seriously something's wrong here

    Awe man. Those hurt. There is a special place in hell for people who are willing to door ding/vandalize someones car.

    Exhaust Leak

    Didn't have time to drop the exhaust and do the weld. I was able to get the car jacked up and threw some Permatex Puddy. It does sound a little better, but still has a ratty tone to it. Looks like I'll be picking up a cat or a resonator to clean up the sound all the way.

    Exhaust Leak

    I have a '91 325i Vert and bought the car with an exhaust leak. Most of the system is in great shape, but the previous owner shouldn't have been allowed near a welder. I have 2 seams that weren't welded all the way around. I am 90% sure he attached the exhaust system and welded it together later. The car sounds awful. Anyways the leak is near the passenger seat of the car. Do I drop the exhaust and weld up the seams or add a catalytic converter for a more stock exhaust tone? I have been searching for an exhaust schematic and can't find anything about a cat, just a forward muffler. If anyone has any E30 exhaust advise I need it. Thanks!
