BAS International New Roof w/glass

Just had a new roof with glass window, with demister

fitted by BAS International (Wales, UK).

Service was excellent, quality looks superb.


The window is very good. The demister lines are very thin (their window used to have thick lines a few years back).
Also there it says 'PORSCHE' in the lower part of the window, about 3 inches across

looks great!

695 all in.

Hi Tom, any chance you could post the details of where you had your new roof fitted? I'm in the UK and i'm looking to do the glass window upgrade

Carhood Warehouse in Surrey are really good and very competitively priced. Not terribly convenient for Stoke on Trent, obviously!

But they will recommend a fitter they trust or supply.

BAS make the roofs themselves.
They supply many UK fitters. any of these fitters charge a premium to fit.
Go to BAS direct and you will get the same roof, direct from manufacturer, at a lower price.
They have people driving from all over to get fitted by them

They will even drive you into town so you can go shopping whilst the fit (took about 3.5 hours) - lots of shops and food to eat. or a cinema

my original roof was dark blue - but I had black fitted.
Doesn't look any better in black maybe (blue was nice too) but fancied a change

Looks great did they wire in the heated window too?

My plastic window is in great condition but I rarely use the roof because Im too lazy and embarrassed to do the boxster chop, so really need to get this upgrade done.
