Does the glove compartment handle work? It may be broken off at the bottom, with the forward part hanging down - that happened to mine.

as for the antenna go to bavauto.com

I got mine on ebay brand new for $30

there are two kinds, one with teeth on the cord that retracts the mast and one without teeth. I don't know which one you need....

I can't get the glove box open in my 87 325i. I can't remember which way the lock is supposed to be when it is open. (Vertical slot or horizontal slot for key) To know that would be a good starting point.
