Ok, my dad's girlfriend has a 1998 M3 convertible, and she's looking for a hard top for our harsh winter. Does anyone know where to find one, that is if anybody made one? She's also looking for OEM floor mats, where is the best place to find those?

I'm from the VW world so I don't know anything about BMW parts and where to buy them.

Thanks,
Chris

Well, I could drive down there and drop off my alpine white 323is and I can take the M3.... It's a hardtop...

I don't think there are aftermarket hardtops, if there are, I've never heard of them. Seems rather hard to impliment a hardtop. If you find one, share with us.

I think it was an option from the factory so it wouldn't be a problem to find.

Im almost positive bavauto sells them. If not, they sell a hoist to take it on/off.

Thanks guys. I checked all the sites jrhaile gave me, and none of them had it. Bavauto had a hardtop caddy thing, so I emailed them to see if it was possible to get one. Still open to suggestions.

Well, it'd be expensive, but I think the dealership is your best bet.
