Interesting, thanks.

I paid about $100/m delivered thru Pelican Parts. Only took a few weeks to arrive.

Re: BMW Cloth Upholstery Material Width?

I ended up purchasing a slightly different fabric from BMW as the E12 cloth was NLA. I bought P/N 51921817333.

The color seems a bit darker (than my 40 year old fabric) and the corduroy wale is narrower.

It is 1.6m wide.

Trunk spoiler from an E28?

I'd like to add a trunk spoiler to my 1978 530i and I'm wondering if there is a way to use one from an E28, etc. because of the greater availability and lower price. I'd be OK with reproductions.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Blaupunkt Radio Recommendation

Thanks folks for the radio info. I've never installed a radio in any of my old cars; they always came with a serviceable, modern unit. I have a newer model that I'm going to stick in the car, just to get started on sorting out the wiring, amps, cross overs, and speakers. I think I'm going to be a bi...

Blaupunkt Radio Recommendation

I'm looking for a period correct Blaupunkt radio for my 1978 530i and just can't nail it down by looking at photos on line, etc.

What makes sense?

Thanks in advance

BMW Cloth Upholstery Material Width?

I am planning to purchase some Marineblau fabric P/N 51921846038 thru a BMW dealer, but they can't tell me how wide it is. I think it's 1.5m but I'm wondering if anyone knows.

Thanks in advance
