Assuming that the whole top doesn't need replacing, many (if not all) of
the factory BMW tops have zip in windows. You'll need some special tool
to unzip it, but, it's supposed to be a pretty quick and easy job.
I just called a local BMW dealer (Fremont, CA) and they quoted me a price
of $247.64 for the top (before BMW CCA discount). So, with some shopping
around, you should be able to find the replacement window for under $200.
One local upholstery shop even can install an aftermarket window that's
tinted darker. They said that it should take them about an an hour to an
hour and a half at $56/hour.
So, you should be able to get the factory window replaced for under $300.
