Convertible Pics

Here are a couple of pics of my Monaco Blue 135 convertible. Enjoy! I haven't seen any other Monaco Blue convertibles, so I guess I'm the first with this color. :thumbup:

Nice car!! Been thinking about Monaco. Can't decide if it is too close to black though. Loving it with the Moonlight top.

Not a fan of the look with the top up... just my opinion though... they are killer with the top down though..

Delivered Friday...AW Taupe/Taupe vert -- I was a little worried since no one seems to have ordered this combo, but I think it came out just FINE with the extra bits and pieces. CF spoiler goes on this week. :thumbup:

You already have the windblocker, shadowline grills and BMW performance wheels installed?

It has been a busy first couple of days, hasn't it? :biggrin:

Can I ask how the windscreen works? Can you leave it in all the time? Is it hard to install or take out? Does it work? Thanks..the car looks good.

Congrats!!! Another 'vert!

Yeah... some more pics of the windscreenI Take some good pics from different angles, and a couple of closeups on the windscreen. That would be cool.

I hadn't seen the windscreen in any pics until this one.

Thanks. The wheels aren't BMW Performance, they're Volk RE30s. The wind deflector works great, esp at freeway speeds. Easy to use, and folds up conveniently. Comes with case. I'll take more pics in a few days.

It definately reduces the windflow in the rear of the car.

If you leave it attached you can not use the rear seats.

In Oz, on the 135 it is a standard acc..:thumbup:

Well the reason I ask is my wife's hair gets a little blown around in the front passanger seat and she doesn't want to just put her hair up in a clip. Sigh...don't ask, I don't which is why we are still married 20 years later, lol. With all the windows up I feel very little air except coming from behind which is I think what the windscreen would fix?

Can you put the top up with it installed?

Can you put the top up with it installed?
Yes, you can definitly put the top up with the windscreen installed and in the "up" position.
I keep mine installed all the time, top up or down - because I have no need for the back seat.
That said, you can still put a lot of packages between in the back seat below the screen - using the space between the 2 front seats to access this space.
The windscreen is easy to install and remove and will fold into 1/4 it's installed size and fits in a little carry bag which takes up little room in the trunk.
As well, if you aren't using the back seat and don't want the screen in the "up" position, the "up" half can be lowered to the "down" position (it's spring loaded), so you don't have to take it out if you don't want to use the screen and don't want it showing.
The screen is "a must" if you do a lot of 60+MPH highway driving and/or if you want to stay a little warmer in cool conditions..

That's what I wanted to hear, thanks so much. I can raise it when she is in the car and lower it when I am in. Perfect. I ordered it from Dan at United BMW.


Texas Girl the Vert looks GREAT!

Thanks, TagMan.

I'm wondering where the pics are from the rest of the vert owners. I know coupes outnumber verts on this forum by a good margin, but we need more vert pics.
