do not park it with the top down outside, it even tells you this in your owners manual, as the sun will damage the interior of the vehicle, the dash and seats.

in a parking garage it should be fine.

personally I prefer to leave it down, there is nothing in my vehicle for anyone to steal, but I would rather they try to figure that out, without cutting up a $7,000 top.

top down 14 months

I have had my top down for almost 14 months straight. Car is garaged all year, and is basically a Sunday (perfect weather driver, only 2200 miles in 14 months). I just got my windows tinted and here is a pic of my tint and top after being down everyday since May 8, 2012 when I bought the car.

Mine goes down on weekends and up during the week. But I have to say Wow - I thought mine was a garage queen, but I'm already at 3,800 miles in 13 months!

Funny, when I had my Retro Tbird with hard top, the soft top could stay down for months at a time when the hard top was installed. Now with the Camaro and all the top issues (fortunately I haven't had any) I never leave the top down overnight. I love this car, but continue to live in the worry over top issues.

+1. Went out on a hot noon day, no hat, you got it, sunburn...ouch.

A really good time is sunset, nothing like it.

Really good way to keep wrinkles down, when putting the top back up for the day, if you have any sun shining on it, the heat help expand the top and the wrinkles can be smoothed out with your hand. Mine looks good but like everyone else here on this forum, I am completely freaked out about it, always looking at it for anything unusual.

Best,
