Thumbs up Z3 / Z4 parcel net installed

I just thought I'd pass this along to some of the newer members. The Z3 has a parcel net which is an easy install on the F30. I keep my umbrella stowed in it. I'll try to take some pics later today but it's all relatively the same. You'll have to bend the wire frame a little to conform with the F30's trans tunnel carpeting.

I read in another subforum that someone used an awl to pierce the carpeting but I found that on both my E46 and my F30 that was not necessary. Just align then mount the clip, push in til it pierces the carpeting then detach clip and screw it in til it seats, then re-attach clip.

The F10 net can also be used, but the clips are more difficult to install:
