I just did it to my '97 2.8. Be prepared to blow $1200-1500 to do it through a dealer though. I bought my RB's used from someone on the board for $400. They were off a Y2K Z3. You'll also lose your Nokia sub woofer because they wont fit without changing the center pieces to storage compartments. The compartments are nice, but expensive. Was it worth it? To me yes. I think it makes the care look much better, arguably safer and now I have a nice windscreen which extends the driving season. Good luck. Here's a list of the parts and prices from my local BMW dealer.

2.51-16-8-407-177 Cover 15.30
