Mine didn't come with one, but it didn't come with a glove box either lol. Pretty sure all E30's originally had them.

Nah just an MK Motorsport Key chain. They made cool wheels for the e30 back in the day and continue to make them for newer BMWs.

Not for an early model with the hooks tucked so tightly under the bumper. Any kind of front end collision where the bumper compresses and you can't get anything on those hooks to save your life.
