E93 top down cover options

I live in S. FL and leave teh top down but worry about quick showers. Is there any tonneau or other quickie covers available.

The old MGs had a full cover that could partially open only for the driver.

Dude....it takes about 20 seconds to bring the top up so I would doubt that any cover would available for this car.

It took some time and effort to bring the top up on an old MG so the cover you describe makes sense for an MG. I don't know where you would attach the snaps on an M3 to secure such a cover...not a realistic option for an E93

Hmmmmm....

I am less worried about rain than discovering a flock of birds had literally bombed the s**t out of my leather seats.

Have you ever walked out to your car and found 1/4 of the hood in a different color than when you parked it? Imagine if that was INSIDE....

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

And, even better, you've pointed out that those high-class, quick-to-deploy covers come in a complimentary-accent color for Interlagos Blue and Le Mans Blue Metallic! Thanks!

As anyone living near the Gulf of Mexico will know, it's actually called "Katrina Blue."
