    Z8 parts vendor

    Recently, in this forum, someone mentioned that they were able to get an OEM car cover with a soft lining from a vendor in Germany. I spoke with this vendor earlier today and he reports that he has one of the largest stocks of Z8 parts. He apparently purchased many of these parts from BMW dealers who had little market for them.
    His email is [email protected].
    I just purchased the soft cloth rear window protector from this vendor. I didn't receive it with my car. Did these cloth covers come with a special container?
    Thanks,
    LarryG

    Hi Scott,
    I use Dick at Roadster Solutions almost exclusively. He is a terrific guy and fun to speak with about BMWs in general. The parts that I just ordered from Germany are simply not available in the US at this time. Dick has tried his best.
    Does your rear window protector have a case, bag, etc.?

    LarryG, I bought my Z8 new in fall of 2002 (2003 model) and it did NOT come with a case for the window protector.
    Best Regards,

    I've had 3 Z8s, non came with a case for the window protector. But I've been told there's such a thing.

    I've never heard of it, or seen it?

    I bought the window protector after I purchased the car and it did not come with a case.

    Thanks for all of the responses. Apparently it is unlikely that there is a case for the window protector. Now all I need is that darn battery tender black vinyl pouch.
