    Hi all, Can I ask Members what they reckon to fitting a Hardtop to a E36 bodied 318i ? Is it straightforward, or might have snags, and do you have to remove the old Hood to do it (or is there room for it to stay folded underneath?) Thank in advance, bartholomew100

    Just put the hardtop back on my car ready for winter, and the rear passenger lights aren't working. I purchased the car with the hardtop a couple of years ago and they have previously worked fine so the hardtop kit must be fitted. Anybody have any quick thoughts on what i can check first? Thanks

    Out of curiosity why can we open the top with the remote key, but can't close it from outside? or am i missing something here? It makes more sense to be able to close the top with the key, specially in england, so that you can get the roof up on your parked car from your front room when it...

    Hi, anyone know where I can buy a Hardtop and all the necessary fittings for a BMW Z3. I don't mind sourcing from various sellers, as long as they are able to pack the hardtop for me. Already been on ebay & gumtree and current sellers won't pack the hardtop for me.

    Ok so I'm cleaning the fabric ready to put away for the hardtop to go on, but how can I get all the little green (mould?) bit off? I only bought it just before the summer so it's new to me, I bought it while the hardtop was on and the tiny green spots were there when I first put the soft top up...

    Hi. I'm thinking about getting a hardtop for my Z3. My Z3 doesn't have Air Condition so I wonder if you can drive the car with windows down on a hot summer day at 90 km/h with the hardtop mounted. Has anyone done that and how is the noise compared to driving with your soft top down? It's hard...
