Replacement soft top

Post by LimpMisfit » Thu Jan 12, 2017 9:01 am

My soft top is looking a little tatty in places and already has a small repair so I was thinking of looking into getting a new one fitted. Does anyone have recent experience of this? I am based in Wiltshire but I am happy to travel to get a good quality replacement fitted.

Not had one fitted. I looked into the cost because of insurance claim. BMW qouted £1500 for the cloth and window and £350 to fit it. If you search 'breaking bmw z4' you'll get a few cars come up, mainly up North. They'll sell you one for a fraction of the dealership price. Fitting one is pretty easy.

Thanks for that :thumbsup: Funnily enough I was looking at that website a couple of hours ago and I am seriously considering using them. I was just hoping someone here might have used them previously to help me gauge quality of materials and workmanship.

I used monsoon when they had a 10% off sale on. Impressed with the quality of the hood fabric and their customer service is fantastic. Mine is on their website somewhere.

They were so impressed by my Z4, they went out and bought one to use as their show car.

I used www.carhood.com for my Boxster last year and they were very good.

Thanks for the brief review Ben; I think you have made my mind up for me.
