Full tonneau cover available?

I drive solo mostly and like to leave top down, but sudden showers are an issue. Does anyone know if a full tonneau even exists for the E93 like the old 2 seat verts?

Thanks

i saw a Viper with one in Cali one day, i thought that was baller !!!
not so sure on a 4-seater though, the E93 is a huge car for convertible-standards... (my standards anyway )

I am also interested in cover. I have made them for previous cars. Am designing one now for my 2008 M3. Anyone interested I can share info on availability.

Car covers mar/scratch your clear coat, I'd avoid using one completely.

3. Convertible Interior Care: Sunbrella™ by Clen Raven Mills, Inc. Easy to use protection for convertibles when the top is down, the interior cover protects the windshield and the vehicle interior from UV radiation, the suns heat, airborne pollutants, and droppings from trees and birds

Maybe I'm wrong, but isn't that what having an automatic, retractable top is for? Sudden shower, put top up, instead of having to put something silly looking in your car.

If it is done properly not silly looking, besides what's siller looking than the stock wind deflector? Back to the question about the rear headrest, can it be removed? that's the first step in order to not make it silly looking.
