New Owner: Baltimore, Maryland

hey guys, i just wanted to introduce myself. my name's tyler and have been an owner of an '08 NFR s2k since friday, june 24th, 2011 however figured i'd lurk, learn, and gather SOME knowledge before joining, introducing, and posting. anyway, i came from a highly modified bmw 330i and have to say am quite excited to take on my new project! please find pictures of my bimmer (from new owners craigslist ad, yes he flew out from CA and drove it back!) as well as some of my new to me baby (will update as soon as they upload).

so far i've installed my function and form type two coilovers and am awaiting a custom shine auto hardtop (carbon fiber w/o bolt on windows (windows will be cemented in for a cleaner look)).

Chave:

It sounds like your top has the same problem as mine, namely the first cross hoop doesn't pull back completely on its own when folding down. It gets in the way and keeps the top from settling the last 2-3 inches.

If you gently push the crossbar back (towards the rear of the car) as the top starts and continues to fold back, the top will settle better (lower) into the well behind the seats. Doing so will allow the wind deflector to clear when lifted. It took me about two weeks to learn that trick, for me, its now an automatic part of lowering the top.

Congrats on your new ride.

oh wow really? ah, i wonder if that's why the tops looks a little awkward when down but then maybe that's how it's designed? anyway my hardtop is shipping out this weekend so when i put the top down to instlall it for the fall/winter will remember that, thanks a lot man!
