Convertible hardtop



Does anyone know where I can find a hard top for my convertible?
Not looking to spend $ for a new one.

Hey Brandon, long time no see. How's the cab driving?

There was one for sale on the BMWCC site.

He wanted $2000 for hardtop and snows. The hardtop was in Peterborough.
And my friend Cabrio post this after I went to NYC to pick up a M3 hardtop and I am only 1/2 hr away from Peterborough . But the road trip was good with my wife.
By the way what colour are you looking for?

Hi Trevor,

My Cab runs well. Too bad I only got to ride in the 19's for 3 weeks.
Does the hardtop fit all 2000-2005 models?

Nope, it's something separate. Do u have the receptacles that the hardtop hinge pins go in? The kit basically includes the receptacles and wiring. From what I see in the past most e46 cabs shipped (to Canada at least) have them built in.

Please see pic.

Trevor,

Thanks for the pics.
I got in contact with Donald Mclean for his hardtop, but would like to meet up with you to see your hardtop before driving to Peterborough to meet with Donald.
If possible please let me know

Thanks,
Brandon

I just checked and the light colour is identical to the light above the rear view mirror.

Is yours different?
