BMW Tension Straps

Tension Straps

You may reuse your existing tension straps, however we recommend you purchase replacement straps whenever you replace your top. Tension straps lose their elasticity over time and the front or rear loops may break. Failure may cause damage to your convertible top and void your warranty. Click on the image to the right or see accessories below for more information.

  • First Quality Haartz German Sonnenland Cloth with black dobby weave lining
  • Precision cutting with automated computer guided equipment
  • The entire top is cut from the same bolt of cloth for consistent color & pattern
  • Stitched with matching colors using the finest bonded polyester threads
  • DOT approved heavy .040 gauge sewn-in, tinted plastic window
  • Factory-style hand-rolled bindings
  • Factory-style brushes are sewn into the rear quarters
  • Deck seams are heat-sealed as original without tape
  • Windows are double stitched and include finish trim piping on the outside
  • Metal spring coils are sewn into a pocket around the window for a factory finished fit
  • Front corners are reinforced for added durability

Great build, factory look, old car looks new June 28, 2017
Reviewer: Steven from Colorado, United States  
My son and I installed the top on our e30 in about 6 hours over a couple days. Great quality, flawless. The factory YouTube video and BadCab's R3V how-to are all you need -- plus patience and time. And tools and contact cement.

If I could change one thing on the tension straps, I'd make the little fabric flaps that cover the screws longer. It matched the factory flaps in size, but the flap on my rear-most hood bar was a touch short and the screw tops would contact the top without an added bit of fabric.

You get what you pay for! May 16, 2016
Reviewer: Francisco from Boca Raton, FL  
This top FAR exceeded any expectations I had.  The stitching is so straight and so consistent, I literally thought it was sewn by a robot (which was later denied by the folks at Sierra..).  Shipping was same day I placed the order.

As the title says, you simply get what you pay for.  This top's fit was laser precise, and i coudln't be happier with the end result.  

To improve:
The tension straps I bought,  consider marking them as drivers/passenger, as it's not readily apparent that they are sided.

I would improve removing the protecting paper from the corner areas between the window and the piping. There are bits left over and can be unsightly (then again it's paper, so it dissolves with time).

A written warranty should be included with the order for records.  Then again this top isn't going anywhere.

Thank you for your fast service and incredible product.  My GF has the exact same car and as soon as she got it, she got the exact same top.  Just as good as mine!

Excellent quality, the professional that installed it was quite impressed, with the fit and finish of this top. Your company was very prompt and helpful when I  called for a question about it. I highly recommend Auto Tops Direct.
