    NY / NJ / CT
    It has a bit of wear and tear from the previous owner but is in good condition overall. You would need to purchase the mounting kit for your vert, but if I remember correctly, it's very inexpensive and only took me about a half hour to install myself. 1000 or BO. PM for details. Matt :thumbup:

    General E46 Forum
    I drive a 2001 BMW 330Ci, and for some reason whenever I try to put the top up or down with my key it does not seem to respond.

    Titanium Silver Metallic hardtop should fit any e46 convertible. Interior lights and defroster work great, has no dents or scratches inside or out. Hard top is in Ithaca,NY right now but I can get it to Boston in a few weeks if someone is interested enough. $1000
