    I have a couple of spare Driver's Side E28 window motors .Asking $55 plus shipping. These motors can be used for both front and rear driver's side windows.

    If it’s a pretty simple retrofit I’ll take one.

    They bolt right in. It is a simple process takes about hour and half to two hours max.
    The three bolts that holds the motor to the regulator on your car is the same thread however it may be 1/16” too long. So use some washers so that when tightening the bolts it wouldn’t interfere with te internal components of the motor...
    I need to add tat my E9 is 1973 CSA .
    By the way Koopman( Harry) is one of the nicest man you would ever do business with. I have purchased many items from him. He is passionate about E9 and loves to help all E9 owner community. Would love to meet him someday!
    Cheers!

    They bolt right in ONLY if you have a Feb/Mar 73 or later coupe, earlier coupes need some work as documented by jmackro.

    Since my username has been quoted, I guess I should chime in. Yea, on earlier cars installing e28 motors isn't what I would call a "bolt-in", though Tony.dreamer's estimate of an hour and half to two hours is about right for the minor modifications necessary.

    Three relevant places to get information on this conversion:

    - The thread I started in December that HB Chris referenced: https://www.e9coupe.com/forum/threads/a-few-tips-on-installing-e28-window-motors.27320/#post-209542

    - Part one of kdelimon's how-to: https://sites.google.com/site/kdelimon/windowmotorconversion1

    - Part two of kdelimon's how-to: https://sites.google.com/site/kdelimon/windowmotorconversion2
    I am in complete agreement with Tony.dreamer on this point.
