I've used Renovo on 2 of my E36 convertibles as well as both of my Z4s and would HIGHLY recommend it. As for the exact type of material...I'll let someone more versed in fabric address that.

I ended up selling mine with the top inop. I have a brand new OEM power convertible top switch if anyone needs one. Got it from the dealer for either right at $100 or just over; I'll take $70 shipped.
