Z4 Soft Top Black Side Covers (pair)

You can literally buy a used roof for less than a set of used plastic covers. Madness! :rofl:

£336!! LOL! You done alright there :thumbsup: I'll have to keep my eye out for a set of these to stick on ebay. Wouldn't put them on the car, prefer the look of the gap. I can't believe someone would pay that much for a couple of bits of plastic. Mind boggling :tumbleweed:
Imagine it... the fools :ebay:
I get the fact that poeple kinda start to go a bit OCD with their Z's and have thier own visions of what their car should look like. You only have to go to a meet to see all the different mods and their proud creators, and that's kinda nice :) . I admit, I bought a hard top, fitted B12 kit and spacers along with storm handbrake and gearstick covers. These are things BMW should've made standard to give the car some stance and looks. But I think the plastic side covers detract from the raw, mecahical aesthetics of a roadster. I like the original Z 2003 before any changes to it whatsoever. Every change BMW made started to ruin it for me. The rear tail lights are round (a bit of a ferrari rip off) and work great with the car. Move to the first upgrade and the tail lights change and the back end looks terrible. The raw roadsters gone, replaced by some lights from a family runaround. Roll the upgrades forward and it gets worse until you now have the Saloon/roadster hybrid. Maybe we could start a thread of how "it's done and not done', any visual comparisons you can think of...?

Well judging by how lifelike that prototype 3D cat is, I have every confidence that the side covers will come out well Chris_D! :thumbsup:

If I was you, I'd fork out the ridiculous cost for a set and print them off till my heart was content. You'd get your money back in no time.

I’d certainly have a set from you if they are reasonably priced :thumbsup:. Afraid I can’t help with letting you borrow a pair though :(

To be honest so would I if they were in say the £20-30 price bracket. That way I wouldn't be too bothered if i didn't really use them or if I forgot I had them fitted and accidentally put the roof up and one popped off/broke etc.
Good opportunity for someone to rustle some up, the demand definitely seems to be there.

Unless your cat is awfully big I think you may need a bigger printer. Difficult to scale against a family pet but they are longer than you think. I will measure mine against our cat later for you, when he is finished bird and insect worrying.

These are a no brainier at sub £50. They are ridiculous at £350. Let’s hope you can print some, and cheaply!
