A manual soft top? As in you have to get out of the car in order to install it?

The only car I can think of is the old boxter targa. Or you can completely remove the top and the hydraulic system from an E89 and buy an umbrella
Little known facts about BMW: 1) The N54 is still in production and used in the current Z4 35i and 35is. 2) In a Z4 you can get sport+ steering combined with normal suspension etc by selecting DSC=off. (Update: DSC=off also offers sports steering in the M135i) 3) All Z4s with 19" wheels are still only offered with the worst performing OEM tires ever sold with a DCT equipped BMW (Potenza RE 050 RFT).
