Wow that's pretty awful, talk about a sunroof! Hope you get it sorted soon.

Sorry to hear about that mate, I'm the wrong end of the uk (Woking, surrey) but have a decent ( some repair to rear screen) you can have it for £100 cash on collection if you can get here?

Good luck getting it sorted

Some jealous class A J harper at work again, never ceases to amaze me what scumbags of society we have to put up with, well it's the closest he got to having a feel for a Z3. I know it's a bit far but there's a guy in Swansea if you fancy a couple of days away who only charged £250 for a new roof if you have to pay out your own pocket for this. Some advise from experience don't bother reporting this to your insurers if your forking out for this out of your own pocket as they log it as a no claims incident and will effect your premium even if you have no claims protection. Hope your back up and running soon and pity the vandal didn't slice his own fingers off in the process.

..............totally agree and preferably even worse!!

There is also Quarry Motors in Sheffield as another source, they have always been pretty helpful to me and cheap delivery.

Better luck from now on, and BTW damage aside, your car looks great. Cheers Pete

There has been a thread recently about best replacement roofs, I've had a quick look but cant find it. I know Titan Tim is looking to get a red one (stick to black, I say) and he contributed, but I dont know who started the thread.
Anyway, sorry to hear of the vandalism, especially on such a nice looking Z.

No,no, I wouldnt go on 'org'. Just the thought of it..... (Only kidding). I've just found the thread I was thinking of. http://www.zroadster.net/forum/viewtopi ... of#p380141
(Mind I'm sure them at org know what they're talking about as well---as they're usually the same people)
