I also have a early build 2012 and have not experienced the rubbing you describe. I did buy mine from Rodgers Chevrolet and they went over the top before I got the car. They told me they did have to make a couple adjustments to the top. It's possible you do need an adjustment.
I have had mine 9 months Today, 9750 miles, most of which have been top down. Enjoy your car!

It looks like it would just need some adjustments made. Glad to hear that is what they did on yours and it has been fine.

I saw the rumours about another "new/corrected" top coming out in April. My car is a very early build 2012. I believe it was July 2011.
You did see that picture and it is post #8 in my thread...

Each pair of pictures in the thread link above are old top vs. June 27th, 2012 revision replacement top on my car. I have a tonneau cover and use it religiously. I also put the top up at the end of each day of use to try and prevent ugly fold marks.

I've heard of the newer April 2012 release unofficially and I believe the C5 user "intensifi" is scheduled to have one installed on his car. You should send him a private message and tell him SSTOKED referred you.

Good luck and keep us posted.
