Default BMW Z3 Top Install

Worked on my landlords 97 Z3 today. This car had the original convertible top on it. After 13 years, it was way past due for a replacement. So today was that day. Started around 8 this morning, and finished up around 1:30. About 45 minutes of that was just :bs: with the neighbor and the landlord. Anyways, here are the pics of it before.




top off:



new top going on:


Finished:

Nice work though I would have gone with a black top.

Black looks good on them, but with the tan interior, it would look odd. The top that went on is the oem color. It matches the rest of the car well.

we have a red karmman ghia at the shop. came in with a white top, white interior. he's going with a black top. looks way out of place.

a color matched red top would look the best on the z3

Everytime I see one of those BMWs they remind me of a hot wheels car... probably pretty fun to drive.
