Might be a bit left of field, but the other thing to check could be the heater valve? Is it fully closing?

Ah - tricky one there... injection parts must not interfere with wedding expenses that's for sure!

Unless the e30 is going to be a wedding car of course, then it's essential ;D

I wonder what the OP ended up doing?

The Z4M front bar cleans up the front pretty well, and looks much better than the stock bar so I'd just throw one of those on there and stick with the Z4.

The dealer can be pretty helpful if you take in your VIN and need a part identified. They just plug your VIN into the ETK.
