Hi all. Just moved to Guam and found a 1990 325i convertible for sale. It's got a new head, pistons, timing belt, etc (previous owner let the timing belt go). The guy I'm buying from has had 7 or 8 325s and works on all of them, and this one is in decent shape. The only things I've identified as needing work so far are new tires and a new zippered plastic rear window. Tires I can handle, but I'm having some trouble finding info on a replacement window. Any pointers?

I'm new to BMW, coming from a long line of Nissans. I drove an 04 520i for two weeks in Germany and loved it, so this is my chance to own the ultimate driving machine. Looking forward to it. I pick up the car Wednesday.

Might want to go to www.carfax.com and check on the history of the car.

Thanks, but the island is only 30 miles long and 10 miles wide at its widest, so even if it strands me I'm not really in trouble. I just needed something to get around for the next couple of years. I do need to replace the rear window though since it's cracking and opaque yellow. Any help there would be appreciated.

Thanks!
