    No riveting tongs?

    Should I be concerned that my dealer needs to purchase the riveting tongs mentioned in the installation instructions

    Apparently, BMW charges $1200+ for this tool.

    I wouldn't be concerned, as I believe it's a tool just for that purpose. My dealer borrowed a tool from a body shop, but apparently it broke so I think they finally got the BMW specific tool. As a result my car was in the shop for a week, but in the end it did turn out perfect. I think the most important factor is that the Z8 technician at the dealership needs to be first rate. There's only one technician at my dealer who works on Z8s.
