I acquired my '99 M Roadster (replacing my '00 S4) last Summer and had a blast before putting it away in mid-December as my Suburban ('97, 238K mi) takes over during the Winter here in the Chicago area which lasts forever, or so it seems when you have a roadster stored and the snow and ice show just won't go away. This is the first time I have had to endure storing a favorite motor-toy for the bad weather months (not counting bikes) and I hate it to the point of contemplating relocation (was that Chandler AZ position on Monster or DICE?). Two questions: best BMW shop in the NW or West Chicago suburbs and where in the world can I get a hard top? Local BMW dealers and even Bavarian Autosport told me I was SOL in trying to get a hard top for my beloved new (to me) M Roadster. Thanks!
