We manufacture a unique BMW 3 Series Convertible Luggage Rack - the boot-bag. We are based in the UK but ship to the USA daily. We also stock Italian made racks for the E46 BMW 3 Series (2000-07) in black or stainless steel finishes and a German made rack for the E93 (07-14)
Boot-bag is a waterproof luggage bag that simply straps to the trunk lid of your BMW adding either 1.75 or 2.65 cubic feet of waterproof luggage space. The bag simply straps around your 3 series's trunk. It sits on a soft non slip fabric mat to protect paintwork. The straps stay in place once the bag is fitted and won't rub the trunk edge.

Traditional BMW 3 Series Convertible Luggage Racks :
The modern car luggage racks we sell come in either black or stainless steel finish. They are made just outside Turin Italy. The company that manufactures them has invested significantly in tooling and has been making car luggage racks since 1969 from $190
These racks will fit the E30,E36 & E46 3 series convertibles.
We also manufacture a unique luggage rack for the E93 Revo Rack from $280
Revo rack is a completely different, completely new type of BMW 3 series Luggage Rack, only manufactured by us in the UK. It eliminates the risk of paint damage, caused by steel clamps or straps on the boot/trunk lid edge/surface. Its universal design also allows it to fit any boot lid that takes the foot print of the rack, irrespective of size or shape. Revo Rack can be fitted in under a minute without any tools. Please watch the video's below.
With the Revo-Rack BMW 3 Series luggage rack no metal touches your BMW only soft rubber vacuum cups these use the pressure of the atmosphere to secure the rack to your SLK's boot.
Whilst its possible to lower and raise the roof with the rack fitted, we advise against it as BMW will not have calibrated the motors to lift the extra weight of the rack and luggage.

Fits in 30 seconds no tools required, no fiddly brackets or bolts.
With the tiny panel gaps on most modern sports cars fitting a conventional rack without damaging the boot edge or surface is almost impossible.

The Rack Frame :
This luggage rack is manufactured from 25mm/ 1" T5 tubing this is an aluminium and magnesium alloy. As a result the rack frame weighs only 1.672kg / 3.6lb perfect for todays aluminium and composite boot/trunk lids. The cross bars are machine welded in place to ensure consistency, the rack is powder coated black. The rack measures 900x420mm/36"x17"
The Vacuum Cup Supports
The rack is secured to your BMW's trunk lid using three 115mm/4.5" vacuum cups, rated as capable of holding an 18kg/40lb load each, technically the rack can hold 54kg.
The vacuum cup technology that Revo-Rack uses has existed for over 40 years it was developed in the film industry in the late 1960's to hold film camera's to cars, and is still in use today.
Vacuum cups employ the force of atmospheric pressure to grip a surface: When a vacuum exists between the cup and the surface on which it is attached, the weight of Earth's atmosphere holds the cup in place with incredible force. These are not suction cups that produce a vacuum as they pull away from the surface, Revo-Racks vacuum cups use a hand-actuated pump to efficiently remove air from between the rubber pad and the attaching surface thus creating a much more reliable hold. Because the full face of the pad is brought into contact with the boot lid, distortion is reduced, allowing the cup to be used with very little risk of damage.
