Uhm. I hate them because I'm jelly.
I don't drop my too as much as most.
I sometimes drive too down windows up. My windscreen only comes out when someone going back there.

It makes for a quieter and comfort cabin with the windscreen. When it's a little chilly outside, that's when I crank up the heat up and roll up the windows.

So yeah. Dunno what you're talking bout.

I also have a bicycle and roof rack I'd like to carry around and need the hardtop for that. when I really want wind on my head. I also have a motorcycle. So I'm really not worried about dropping the top every chance I get.

I think the vert with a hardtop looks better than a coupe too.

Welcome jwalther. Nice one.

As for hard tops, not much use for them here in SoCal - unless you want to take it to the mountains, which I wouldn't do with my car anyway. If someone wants to give me one for free I'd definitely take it though.

New to E46's but definitely not new to BMW! Been a part of Bimmerfest for a number of years now. Just new to E46Fanatics...

Here she goes.. Just picked her up a week ago and these pics were straight out if the Detailer! That's when I fell in love with her even more...

*** The Official E46 Convertible Pics Thread***

Got some ambers to try with the IR.
Put them on. Then that led to a hmmmm, lemme try the chrome kidneys too since I had removed the lip the day prior to have it refinished.

Sometimes I like the chrome kidneys. Other times not so much. We'll see how it all looks when I get the lip back. I'm def gonna rock the ambers for a bit tho.

Looks good Snik.

Separately, DropTopKing and DrunkAZN's LSB M3 Vert are my two favorite cars on here (besides mine ). To me, both are amazing examples of gorgeous, aggressive quality modding but not the least over the top.

Thanks bro. My cinnamon interior is my favorite mod up to date. My original interior was black, but Ive had 2 sets of cinnamon since. Back in April I got my hands on a very fresh set of cinnamon and sold my other cinnamon.

Chrome kidneys are making a comeback. Your car looks really good man. Just something you may want to address. Im not sure if your car is on an angle in the pic but the rear looks like it may have some positive camber. Have you gotten a wheel alignment recently? Otherwise looking real good

You are ONE lucky one!!! I currently have a beige interior so it's a LOT more difficult of a swap than if I were going from Black to Cinnamon.
