Hardtop for my z3 looking a little big.

Does anybody know if there are multiple hardtop dimensions/ models because the one that i have now seems to fit a little big, and when i mean big, i mean around the back and sides it sticks out about an inch but up top at where it meets the windshield it fits fine.

Is it oem? All hard top are same size for our Z3s.

Pic would help. Maybe it's not installed correctly.

you need to adjust the hardtop mounting points. Do a search here or on the "other" forum, and that should set you on the right track.

I don't have my hardtop on right now but I do remember mine overlapped quite a bit also, I think it is normal.
