Do any E46 convertibles come with a glass rear window?
If so what models and years, or was it an option?

Not sure I've seen an E46 vert without rear glass, doesn't mean there aren't. Early models maybe?

I think they all come with glass as well. I would hope bmw isn't that cheap.

Was just asking.
I know the E36s had a plastic. Wasn't sure what the E46s had.

Perhaps to the untrained eye but those of us that "get it" love it. Beautiful car.

Thanks guys.

I got her detailed on Friday and did not touch the car till Saturday. All was fine till Saturday morning when both key remotes did not unlock/lock the doors and trunk. The remote did not work but I can manually unlock/lock and start the car. Totally strange?!?! Took it to an indy shop and they said the remote is not recognized.

Anyways, I finished my hoist and going topless this week. See pictures! Total cost $32 plus 1 hour for installation!!
