BMW E30 Soft Top and Convertible Roof Repairs

We specialise in solving BMW E30 soft top and convertible roof repairs

The BMW E30 convertible was first released in 1984. The cabriolet roof system was made by Baur, who have built folding roof systems for BMW since the 1930’s. The iconic and now highly desirable BMW E30 cabriolet, with excellent build quality & design barley changed until it was replaced by the BMMW E36 in 1994.

At Cayman Autos, we see these much loved and cherished soft-top E30’s, sometimes from the original owners and more recently, newly acquired as investment pieces, restoring its’ original style and repair to the 30 year old roof system.

The BMW E30 is a gem in its classic retro category of soft-top convertibles and a rising star for all their owners. Despite the age of these popular vehicles, parts for the convertible roof repairs are still widely available across the new, refurbished and second-hand markets.
