That's a shame. I rang BMW today. A replacement dash is AU$1400. That's
around a quarter of what a fair condition 1990 318is would sell for. I
don't think they'll sell too many :) But the sales guy said I was better
off than the Z3 owner who recently asked for about a new dash. It was
I guess I'll stick with the dash cover.
When I first got the car I used to use Armor All, a vinyl cleaner on the
dash, but stopped when I heard it did more damage than good. I just left
the dash as it was for 8 years or so, getting the cracks plastic welded
twice. OK. That sounds like it was a bad decision.
At least everyone outside will see a nice car after I get it resprayed.
It's a pity I sit inside and get to see the cracks lurking under the dash
BTW. I agree with your sig block. Newsgroups are a great way to find
answers from people who have actually had the problems. Thanks all.
