    Hi y'all: Was intending to get a softtop convertible but have fallen in love with the Z4 E89.
    What is the reputation of those retractable hardtops? I've read that the E85s had issues with water pooling and rusting out the motor.
    And if the car is out of warranty, will it be a pain to get fixed? Thanks in advance for any tips and tricks.

    These tops are one of the best and really don't have any issues. I can count on one hand the issue ihave delt with on these tops. Yes tops can be Pricy and not easy to fix but the failure rate is so low I wouldn't worry.
