Try thebmwpartstore.com for the best price on oem replacement products. I purchased my eurotray and mats from them and got the best price out there. I received my products within 2 days

I love the iPod in the euro tray mod. Its so stealth and oem looking. I kinda miss my cup holders but I shouldn't be drinking coffee in my vert anyway lol.

If your car didn't have a hardtop to begin with where do you recommend buying one from these days? I'm in Canada, so the Hardtop would be preferable for sure.

I would only pick one up for $1,200 and maybe dish out a little extra for the stand and cover and prep kit (if not already installed--would have to check your VIN at the dealer I think to see if you've already got it). I let a few $1,200-$1,400 options go several years ago when I was driving my vert all 4 seasons.

Day I bought it and right now. Question for anyone who knows about/ owns a roof box. Is that going to be too much stress pulling up on the front of the hard top? I feel like air going under it may be bad.

That's why you put the skis on with the tips pointed down instead of up.
