BMW Z3 Convertible Top

Fits the 1996-2002 Z3 and M Roadster


This is not the original material for the BMW Z3 and M Roadster, but it is a good alternative and widely used on American and Japanese convertibles. Like the original, it is a three-ply composite and a premium quality product. The key differences are that the exterior is a square weave instead of a twill weave and the inside is a plain cotton lining instead of the dobby (criss-cross) lining.

BMW Convertible Top Window


Includes a new plastic window with a very slight tint similar to the original. The window is sewn into the convertible top for strength and durability. Finish trim piping is included around the outer frame of the window as shown in the above image.


Manufactured using first quality American Stayfast cloth/canvas with a plain inner lining. The canvas topping is a three-ply composite made of a square weave outer fabric, a rubber inner layer and a cotton lining fabric. Want to learn more?

BMW Z3 Relief Pocket

This convertible top incorporates the 1998 BMW technical redesign to address some deficiencies in earlier models. The three improvements include:

(1) adding relief pockets in the quarter panels,
(2) adding a stiffener inside above the window, and
(3) adding elastic straps above window to support the tension straps.

These improvements fit all model years of the Z3 and M Roadster.
