I took the plasti dip off last weekend as it was starting to peel, I repaired it a few times, then just took it off to do it again soon. It can only stick so well on chrome, this was the second time I plasti dipp'ed them, first time matte black, 2nd time was black with gloss which gave the rims a satin look.

last week:

According to the service rep at my dealer, there used to be a control function that wouldn't allow the top to move in temps below 28 degrees. They stopped using it for the '03 model.

For mine, they just disconnected it at no charge. I had been riding around on a Sunday with the top down. Overnight, the temperature plummeted and I couldn't put the damn thing up Monday morning!

I ordered it online from Stevens Creek BMW, in Santa Clara, CA. It was less than $80 with shipping. It was the best one they had.

Just bought an M3 hardtop this afternoon, installed it, washed it, but have not waxed it yet - tomorrow I will do that.
