I didn't know what I needed for my little car (a 1988 325 Convertible) in anticipation of a 2000+ mile road trip but they took care of everything.

I started my road trip with a much-improved car and I had a nice journey.

I arrived safely and without incident (except for a speeding ticket -- maybe it ran too well)!

BMW E30 3-Series Glove Compartment Alternate Vendors

Last Updated: 09/04/2016
Parts Group: Glove compartment
We sell good, original BMW, used E30 glove compartment units. If you like, you can skip directly to where you can buy this part:
This article discusses the glove compartment (a.k.a. glove box), for the BMW E30 3-Series with the main focus being on alternate sources to consider. We'd like to be your best option, not your only option.

At the time of this writing a new original-BMW replacement unit is priced at more than $300 from Pelican Parts (a wonderful vendor whom I personally buy from, and endorse, though I don’t anticipate buying this particular part from them any time soon, personally). After buying that, you still need the various parts that screw or bolt onto the glove compartment.

Another option is junkyards. However, people tend to try to remove the glove compartments as soon as a car goes to a junkyard -- and they often don't know how to approach this the right way, so we see many glove boxes damaged during removal attempts.
