In Reply to: Rear Window Blanket & Soft Top Questions posted by Rosenberg on January 13, 2000 at 11:12:31:
: I'm new to the BMW soft top world, so I have some simple questions:
: 1) Does the rear window blanket come with the car or is it an add-on option (I didn't get one with the car) ?
Should be free warranty, I just got mine at no cost from my BMW dealer (97 2.8) P/N is 82-11-1-469-778. Also, if you have the cassette holder and would like to exchange it for the cup holder, it is also free (including install) P/N is 82-11-1-469-516
: 2) Is the rear window blanket necessary, does it really help maintain the window and/or does it do anything else?
: 3) Should I be putting anything on the soft top (perservative, waterproofing, etc.)?
: 4) Any additional maintenance items that a hard top person (like me) wouldn't know about?
