Greg ( Greggers on here ) recently borrowed my Tonneau cover to have it copied by his local trimmer.Haven't seen the result or cost yet , but I'm led to believe new ones from OPC ( if available in your colour )are in excess of £400.

I'll be going back to see him this week with luck so should be able to get an update on the cost. Hopefully not too expensive and even more hopefully cheaper if more than one is ordered...

Hi Stu,

Id be interested to hear what you get for £262.

I was told by my OPC they were NLA so I got a price form Southbound trimmers a year or more back and they wanted £430 - I didnt take them up on it.

I spotted them available to order from Rose Passion at Euro 720!

Just to bring this topic back to life for a moment - rapidstu, what did you think when you got around to fitting it on the car?

Anyone have any up to date on sources for one of these.

Just priced up one from German Auto Tops in the US at $525 inc shipping.

Will no doubt get a VAT/import duty hit on top of that.

Stu's £262 looks a bargain -does anyone have a source in Europe?
