: Wow, I just called the dealer (Stevens Creek BMW) for the price of a soft top. There appears to be two versions, early years version ($1000) then the new version with liner (over $2000). I couldn't believe the new version with liner to be that expensive. And the kicker is to install, $800 for labor. They've got to be kidding!
: My question to you all, has anyone installed a new soft top? Is it that tricky to do?
Yep, over 2K to get it done. I call about having a different color installed when I was looking at a M the dealer had on the lot. He offered a great discount, but he kept saying that I could change the top and still save money. I contacted parts and 2K was the cost plus installation and most BMW dealers don't do the install. It's an outside job.
