    Try German eBay for some of the panels, I use google translate for terms etc.
    Sunroof is a pig of a job, has to be cut out to be properly fixed. Hard to find a clean doner sunroof section these days. Mine needs doing soon

    Scuttle panel from Aherns castleisland is reasonable, rear panel a little expensive. Going to replace these first. The front wings are coming off, so any thing need replacing will be done. That's the plan for the first stage.

    I purchased a scuttle panel last month for a customers car and was a little taken back to find the
    chassis number stamped in the bottom of the rain water channel as opposed to every other e30's
    chassis number on the side wall of the channel.



    I had the dealer attempt to send it back to be rectified only to be informed that this is the way all
    scuttle panels will be stamped from now on as new equipment will not allow the stamping of chassis
    numbers in the original location. Rather than have the panel go NLA they are offering this as a next
    best thing.



    May not bother you at all if you intend to just use outer sections of the scuttle panel for repairs rather
    than replace the whole lot but I thought it was worth mentioning.

    I expect that'll be a pain at NCT time given my experience last year
