1996-2002 BMW Z3 Replacement Convertible Top
1996-2002 BMW Z3 and M Roadster convertible tops are manufactured in the USA using the original patterns and specifications to the original vehicle. Our BMW Twillfast II (Sonnendeck) canvas is from The Haartz Corporation. This was the original material used on the Z3 and M Roadster. It is a premium quality topping with 100% dobby weave lining fabric.
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 Twillfast II cloth/canvas with a dobby (crisscross) inner lining. The canvas topping is a three-ply composite made of a twill weave outer fabric, a rubber inner layer and a polyester/cotton lining fabric. The material is the same as the original BMW top and since the topping material was manufactured in the same factory that made it for BMW, you can be sure the color, texture, look and feel will match.
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.
