I have a 3 car garage so I just lay it down on the side. BMW does offer a roller with a cover but it's way over priced. I'm thinking of getting a dolly from Home Depot instead or like what you said, just build a 2x4 with wheels.

I used the movers blanket to cover the hardtop.
: I am picking up an M3 convertible this week with a hardtop and was wondering how people store the hardtop when not in use? Does BMW sell a rack or lift so it can be stored above the car (like Mercedes tops)? Have people built lifts or racks?

: If there isn't anything good by BMW (or if it is way overpriced), I would probably make a rack out of 2x4s and carpet remnants as padding. Has anyone done this?

: Also, any suggestions for protecting the rear window? My dealer said to put a towel in the top as it is closing to protect it from scratching when the top is down or hardtop on. Anyone tried this? Any other recommendations?

: Thanks for any suggestions...
