Shark fin delete?

Is there a shark fin delete option on the Z4 (had this done for my 335i)?

If so, could I order the premium stereo with the shark fin delete (that is, premium stereo but not sat radio and lose the shark fin)?

Thanks,
abmwc

By shark fin do you mean the bump on the trunk lid? I don't think there is a separate shark fin on the Z4.

Yep, that is what I am referring to. While not as prominent as the fin on the E93 trunk, I think I would prefer no bump at all if it is possible to avoid.

Thanks,

Don't think this is possible.

The "shark fin" bump is molded into the top of the stop lamp cover.

http://bmwfans.info/parts/catalog/E8.../trunk_lid/#03

I only see one part number for the stop lamp cover at GetBMWParts and at BMWFans, but, I have seen pictures (Like here http://www.dep-o.co.uk/page327.asp ) that seem to show stop lamp covers that don't have the bump on them.

I suppose you could remove the antenna that sticks up into the "fin", and replace your stop lamp cover with one that didn't have the bump.

Thanks for the responses. I thought it was a long shot from the time I posted, but it never hurts to ask.
