    Good luck mate, plenty about second hand on ebay and another forum that lots of people are venturing over from ATM, but they are quite troublesome at times.

    New ones are very rare as IIRC they are no longer available and they command a high price..

    I have seen a thread about fixing them up, not sure what site it was on - I will have a think at work tonight

    Rare and surprisingly very much wanted items

    No word of a lie, it's a damn shame you weren't asking back in Nov as I sold pretty much all my spare genuine NEW parts I had for my e30 from gaskets to headlights and yes I even had all the headlight washer parts. (I would have listed them here but due to 'that' problem we all had here on the site I had no choice but to list them on eBay ).

    Wish I could have help mate, but I do wish you all the best getting the parts you want/need.

    Arrrgggghhhh...Now that is rubbing salt in the wound! No worries mate, I totally understand your position after the trouble we had on here. I'm currently watching a set on eBay at the moment, but like you say, they're a rare and suprisingly wanted item, so no doubt the price will sky rocket towards the end of the auction.

    Thanks Kev, that would be awesome if you had a set, and a set of headlights. I managed to remove the lot from my car this evening, and opened the motors up, while following a How-To (which I'll find again and post up here). Unfortunately the motors were beyond repair once I managed to get into them.

    Been looking at Halo Rings myself tonight, I think they could look quite good with an HID kit and some 'Brows.

    Thanks for the heads up about Midland BM too, will check them out on Monday.

    the shafts of the wiper arm corrode and becomes stuck. you can pull them apart, linish the shaft and regrease. But they are not very reliable, not worth the hassle IMHO. Fit a high pressure pump from a newer car and some jets if you are after clean lights
    E30 M3 track rat. 'til rust do us part......
