How about if you do it like mine? Slicktop AND ZCP?

I've for one both appreciate and require the additional headroom... so a slicktop is high on my list as I search for a E90.

For those owners on the thread that are ready to move onto a new car, PM me and let's make a deal.

Here's a pic from maybe 6 years back of my SilverstoneII slicktop E90 M3 parked next to my daughter's Imola slicktop E46 ZHP.

Loved my E90 sunroof right up until the cloth sagged and then ripped right off when I slid the shade back. Dried out glue went everywhere...

My next M will be without a sunroof as BMW obviously doesn't know how to make glue that lasts!

This happened a couple weeks ago on my E36. So annoying.
