Last night, someone broke into my car! Its a 325ic, soft top, plastic rear window.

They tried tearing the window and cut it by about 6 inches. Then decided against it and broke my driver side window. Stole my CD player!!

I ll try to get the window fixed today! How about the rear window? Do I have to replace the entire top? Anyway I can get it fixed. Somoone told me to consider talking to a upholstery.

Please suggest if there are any possible remedies without changing the entire soft top. that soft top is a speckless and perfect so far. I hate to change it completely.!

Thanks

No worries, man. you wont have to replace the whole top. Find a vehicle upholsterer, and for about 250-300 bucks, you can have a new window. Just turn it in on insurance. Make sure they get DOT approved plastic for window though.

edit: might be more than that, they have to take top off to sew new one in.

R.I.P fast 6


Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.

that really sooks man.

search ebay, there's a guy that sells replacements for $ 70, you'll have to stich it back on.
another option is replacing it with zipper type, easy on and off.
those can be found here...

Some E30 back softtop windows are zipped in anyway the dealers sell the windows separate and if it is a zip type, you should get a fitting kit with it. You dont have to take the roof of to fit it. I dont know about an E30 but for AN E36 or Z3 the dealer charge about one hour labour

factory E30 tops have a zip in rear window. i wish mine was zip out for those hot summer months. look carefully, you'll see it's zipped in but there's no zipper pull. i think there's a bmw tool that's used to install the replacement window glass. talk to your local dealer.
