Question MCoupe antenna removal?

Hey guys.. specially m coupe owners hehe how do I remove the antena so I can properly place the bmw car cover on it? There should be a simple way to do this. I don't want to bend the antena. Also, is there a bentley manual for the m coupe?

Thanks
Jeff

Jeff: During the summer I leave the car uncovered (in a locked garage) so that the dust from the cover doesn't ruin my shine. I leave a radio playing to keep critters from setting up a home there too.

About the antena: If you leave the car parked outside for any length of time you will want to consider removing the antena to prevent theft.

I got it from the dealer. IMHO, its way overpriced. I was thinking it was going to be a tought material but it looks like it's some kinda silvery cloth thing. Anyways, if your looking at replacing yours i don't recomend this one, get the one from http://www.carcoon.com/about.html !!! I will get that soon when I have the dough heheheh

I got my cover from dealer too... it's overpriced but it was a gift

it's different one from urs.. i dun have the word Z3 printed on it... but i do have a BMW bag attached to it and a little "window" at the back to see the rear license plate.

I love this cover... not the best looking but its quality is really good.

Jeff/Alex: Thanks, I'll stick with my heavy duty, if over sized cover for the time being
