F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

Convertible Top

I just bought a 2015 228i convertible. Need to know what material the top is and which is the best sealant/protector. The car lives in Southern California.

If it's fabric, I would recommend 303 Fabric Protector, works really well.

I'd have to read the label, I know that after application and it dries, the water just beads up and rolls off.

I've been using RaggTop cleaner and sealant twice a year for 16 years on my E46. Top still in excellent shape, and I can see the water bead after application (tends to bead less by 6 months . . . )
