OUCH. That's what top replacement #2 out of FOUR looked like on mine. Torn up pretty bad.

Two weeks ago I purchased a convertible that had been sitting on the lot since the middle of August. Eight miles on the meter. Very few, if any test-drives. It had been hosed off a few times, but no car wash. The top looked perfect. I bought it on the spot. The salesman said he'd have the Get Ready shop clean it up. I told him, "It's black...so no swirl marks or no deal." It came back perfect in 30 minutes. Not a swirl or blemish and the fabric top was completely dry.

Some dealers listen... others don't.

Exactly. There are actually some good one's out there. Mine seems to get amnesia with my instructions. Even when they are in writing.
