I'm have managed to get my hands on a tonneau cover and wind deflector for my 2.0 Z3.
I have managed to fit them individually, but fitting them together is proving problematic. I think I need item 3 in the linked picture:

http://realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=CL32&mospid=48080&btnr=54_0305&hg=54&fg=95

I have tried searching google and drawn a blank, other than some foreign sites. Does anybody know where I might be able to get hold of a set please?

Part number is 82150002111 which seems to be discontinued.

Thanks for any help.

You did well to get hold of both items...

I had the same wind deflector looking at the diagram, but mine didn't have or need item 3. Then again, I didn't have a tonneau cover so perhaps thats why they are needed :-\

Thanks for the replies.

The screws that r37 has linked to are the ones that are already fitted to the car. I need longer screws (with spacers) so that I can fit the wind deflector and tonneau cover at the same time.
The deflector alone, hooks over the screws, but it gets in the way of clipping the tonneau cover in place, hence the need for longer screws.

This I believe is the exact item I am looking for:

I was hoping to be able to get something from the UK, but if all else fails, I will have to try my luck getting them from Germany. I love the look of the fitted tonneau cover and the functionality of the wind defector so hopefully will be able to get the two working together!

Cheers

Tractorboy.... speak to your local dealer, looking at ebay a German dealer sells them so unless they have a load of stock they're probably still available. If so, your local dealer, if they've not got them in stock, will get them for you.

I got some carpet fittings last year and they came from Germany :)

Get them to check the part number though, that way if they ever get you the wrong part they will exchange, if you say you want "part number ......." and you've picked the wrong part number, they usually won't..

Well, I eventually ended up ordering a set from ebay-Germany and they arrived today.
Cost me about £25 including postage, which I thought was a bit steep for a couple of screws, but I fitted them in minutes and am very pleased with the result!

Sounds a good result despite the price! ;)

I have a contact at a dealers and he checked. None available unfortunately, which I why I went down the ebay route. I had already read of people getting them from dealers, so that was the first place I tried.
I got a fantastic deal on the tonneau cover and wind deflector, so didn't mind the extra outlay.
