Early Model Coupe Manual Window Conversion ?s

1. I know that the regulators don't save weight
2. The harness connection is completely fucked on my 3/87 325is, so I don't want to focus on fixing that
3. I want to go completely harness-less in my 325is because it's track prepped (still streetable).
4. Am I really reading this correctly, there's no regulator but this weird cable looking thing?

It's some sort of crazy cable contraption, but it seems to work.

You're correct, there is no traditional regulator. The cable-style mechanism is actually very easy to deal with.

I did this years ago in my 24v early model, it's a direct swap minus I believe needing two extra M6 bolts per side. Only recommendation is to shoot some sort of lube into the manual regulator (assuming you got them used) before installing.
