So that looks like it's 10 since UK shipping isn't a problem and I'll add Maverick78s name if he doesn't mind.

I requested the shipping cost for belgium (europe) and got a reply from David:

'The shipping cost to you is $50 via USPS Priority Mail international in addition to the cost of the smartTop.'

I guess it's going to be a similar for Finland

It could still be cheaper than and I am hoping that it is. Voytak was talking $50USD if I am not mistaken. $370eu is actually $490usd. Prices here ranges from $360-$370usd right now so if he can give us around that price or better, even with $50usd shipping, that would still be cheaper than the $370eu price.

I just installed mine about an hour ago and, provided you follow the directions EXACTLY, then you could easily install this in under 30 minutes.

I think I made two mistakes that caused it to be more of a 45-60 minute job:

First, I have Comfort Access and turned the car on and started opening the top with the key not in the ignition. What happened then was that after I disconnected the stock harness, the navigation screen (flipped open and) displayed a message indicating there was a hardtop malfunction. In order to resolve that, I had to go back, uninstall everything, disconnect the SmartTop and then close the roof completely.

Secondly--if this even has anything to do with it--I was working on the car with the metal roof panels not laying on top of the windshield. Mine were sort of suspended in air when I first started working on the car. I'm not sure whether this has any effect, but it was a confounding variable in trying to figure out what went wrong.

Thirdly, after I figured out the key being by the car may be causing me trouble, I put it far away from the car. The problem is that after you install the SmartTop, you need to press the unlock (immediately?) in order to get it to begin working correctly.

So, for those of you with comfort access, insert the key + put the roof in the correct position+ turn off the car and remove the key. Then, once you've installed the SmartTop, quickly press the unlock button.

Just installed the SmartTop in my 2011 Z4 on Friday. Was not easy to install but not too hard either. Once it was installed, initially it did not work. I reinstalled the factory harness and the top would not respond! I almost sh-t my pants. I got an error message on the nav screen to look in the manual. The manual was of no help. I called mod4cars and spoke to a tech. ( I think it was the owner) He was extremely patient and walked me through getting the module to work. Thank God! It works as advertised. I still can't fit the harness completey under the carpeted cover, but I can live with that. It was much easier to install than a module I installed in my Cayman a few years ago. Hope this helps.

not quite live…… Just tried to order and the discount code gets removed, resulting in full price being charged :-(

I'd like one, just need to get this issue sorted.

I had the same problem. On the screen where you put your shipping/billing info, about midway there is a box for the coupon and you can enter it again. When you go to the next page to review the order, it should reflect the discount.
