E89 Smart Top


Hi Im picking up my 'used' 2011 E89 S23i and whilst at the dealer i found that although i could open the roof with the fob - i couldn't close it.. I was a little disheartened after seeing all these you tube clips where people were doing this.. After some digging i understand there is a 'smart top' device that can be bought and fitted.. so my questions:
A: Has any one bought the 'smart top unit'?
B: where did u buy it from?
C: did you fit it yourself or professionally?
D: Does it work as it is shown..
E: Where did u get yours fitted..

and finally.. Would you recommend it...

THANK YOU - excited soon to be Z4 owner..!! :driving:

there have been several people develop mysterious electrical problems with Smart Top installed. You have to then hide it and hope BMW doesn't figure out you were running it.

One Gent in my Z Roadster club has had a smart top installed in his E89 for about six years. He loves it and no issues. I had one installed in my EOS and had no issues at all. It pops right out / unplugs for when you take it to the dealer.
