If your BMW Z3 window is discolored, darkened, cracked or the bead around the outside is separating you don't need a new top. You only need to replace the window to correct the problem. Fortunately BMW provided for their windows with a zipper system allowing it to be replaced without removing, replacing or disturbing the top itself. PLEASE INSURE YOUR WINDOW IS A ZIP IN BEFORE ORDERING. The old window is simply unzipped and removed and the replacement window is zipped in. This window is a zip-in window just like the original BMW window except it
includes a higher quality trim on the outside edge that should outlast the original
plastic trim that usually is the first component of the original tops to break down. It
is Made in the USA using DOT approved plastic that is higher in quality than the
original window and only half the price.
The Original window plastic can be easily scratched with a sharp object. This plastic is much tougher and resistant to
scratching and won't easily be scratched and in addition it is more flexible,
meaning that it should be more resistant to creasing and cracking. It is very resistant to "Memory" in that it will not retain folds from when the top is left down for extended periods. It always comes right back to original flatness when the top is opened. Also, the exterior trim that covers the edge of top not only covers all rough or frayed edges of the top but will
last much longer and not deteriorate like BMW's plastic trim.
I am often
asked by people if they can replace the window themselves. The answer is an
absolute "YES". You simply unzip the old window from inside and the new window
zips in easily. Your window will include the zipper slider necessary to do the
operation (zipping and unzipping). I don't want to over simplify the installation as it does take a little time and patience but anyone can do it. I do highly recommend you get someone to assist
you (one inside the car and one outside just to keep things lined up) and it
should take 1-2 hours at the most. I have had response that some have
accomplished it in approximately 15-20 minutes but honestly this is the exception. It generally takes me about 45 minutes but I have done it a few times so I would count on 1 or 2 hours
unless you are very quick and a handy person. I will include the simple to
follow instructions with your order.
There are cheaper copies and many overpriced similar items but I promise you none are any better quality or easier to install than this one. These have satisfied many Z3 owners all over the world and saved them money. This same window is on my personal Z3. It comes with a 1 year
replacement warranty against all defects or deterioration beyond normal wear. Don't waste your money on the overpriced BMW original window. This one will long outlast it for half the money. It is truly the best quality and best buy out there. I also have this window available in a darker tint but it is only 40% tinted (allows 40% light to pass through) and in my opinion is not worth the extra money so I do not recommend it. It is not the real real dark tint like you find on many cars today that you can't see through. Those are generally 5-15%. Again, I do not recommend it but do offer it for an additional $7.00 if wanted.
I will ship internationally for a small increase in shipping costs. Just click on International Shipping below. I try to ship as soon as possible after receiving an order. Thanks for your interest and best of luck with your BMW window
