    Good Evening you well informed bunch.

    Recently i was breaking a bmw e36 coupe which has electric opening hatch rear windows and i am planning to fit them to my 1997 318is coupe and i have all the parts.
    Is this a straight foward job or is it uber difficult?
    And how rare of an option is this, because the only other car i have seen fitted with this option was on a M3 evo gt2

    Cheers

    It is a rare option/upgrade, as for retro fitting them, I wouldn't know, I can't imagine it would too much of a hassle, unlike a Ford Capri were you have to add new metal

    Have you got some pics? I've never seen them as yet

    I will try and get some pics tommorow ronnie but the only visual difference is that there is two rocker switches below the normal window switches on the centre console and small cables that open the windows running through gaps at the back of the rear quarter card trims.
    Originally i thought that a saloon centre console had been put in by mistake as a replacment and by sheer fluke discovered that they were electric hatch rear windows when i lent on a switch by accident (cant complain though).

    Is it possible the loom for the windows was a seperate piece of loom or do you think it is wired in to the main harness?

    I hope the car i broke for bits wasnt a special demonstraters version or something because it was fully kitted up for a 1996, obc, green leather sports seats, elecy rear windows etc

    Also, im liking the e30 m3 picture ronnie, nice job
