Shattered rear window?

Postby Shaffer325ix » Sat Nov 22, 2014 12:07 am

Hey guys, I just shattered my rear window, just like that, boom! Not sure when it happened but I started thinking about a post somewhere I read about the weak rear shock mounts, that made me look for these http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E30-325ix-M20_2.5L/Suspension/Shocks/ES2762983/... which led me to think about the body twisting all violent like during my wheelstand inducing launches at every stop sign... (j/k) and thunk that the fact I have a rear shock I thought was just bad, is in fact blown through the mount.

..has anyone ever experienced this, or could this just be my luck?

I blew a RSM before, but it didn't break the window if that's what your asking. No way the chassis flexes enough to break the rear glass.

I'd chalk it up to age.
