I'm surprised that no one has come up with an aftermarket solution to this problem.
Clearly, BMW designed this ridiculous piece of equipment as an afterthought... "Gee, Franz... vat are ve going to do about ze top ven it iz down?"
The ideal aftermarket solution would be soft and somewhat foldable so storage would be less of an issue as well as being easier to put on. I've not used mine more than 2 times in the year I've had my car because it's too much of a pain in the backside to put on and because it takes up too much precious storage space when it's off. I would NEVER take it on a trip; I wouldn't give up that much storage space for a big chunk o' rubber.
