Post BMW M3 Convertible Strut question

I have a 1999 BMW M3 convertible and I am attempting to replace the Strut Mounts. I have been unable to find where I get access to the top of the Strut mount. I have removed the Trunk lining, but that doesn't appear to give me access. Can anyone give me some ideas? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
-Brent

I'm not trying to pick on BMW (because I own one), nor Mercedes. The truth of the matter though is that they are not in the same league as what a true luxury car is. If they were, there would be just as many Maybach's as there are Rolls Royce Phantoms. Would anyone pay $380,000 for a Phantom if a $450,000 Maybach was better, flashier, and higher quality vehicle?
