Mine was from an AP1 and fit my 2006 just fine.

I did end up replacing two of the snaps ($13 each) to make them fit securely.

I know people complain about them, but it looks so good.

I drive top down a lot. I generally don't use the tonneau cover because it is a bit of a hassle to get on and off. Its nice to be able to pull over and throw the top up quickly in a rain squall. But, there is no question that if you use the tonneau it keeps the top clean. I think I should start using it more regularly just for that reason alone.

I think I know where my tonneau cover is. I used it once five years ago. Looked very nice and finished on the car. Used the bulk of the trunk when removed. I think the full cockpit cover on my MGB was less hassle to put on and take off.

Default boot cover

I have a 2007 and can't seem to install the boot cover. Is there a trick to this? The snaps are down pretty low behind the headrest with almost no clearance to get my hand down there to snap it in place. I also looks like it might be too short from front to back where the two plastic flanges would slide under the back trunk lip area. Any advise would be helpful. I don't think the previous owner ever used the boot. Can't even find a You tube video on how to install one. Thanks, Mark.

I use mine somewhat regularly, I do find that I have to put on 1 side then pull somewhat on the cover to get the other snap to line up but it is doable.

I keep my tonneau cover in the garage, if I ever decide to sell the car (HA), but I use this 2000 Travel Boot Cover instead. Folds to almost nothing in the trunk.

It may help to have fresh elastic straps (Modifry) to help keep the top in the fully closed position. That goes a long way to make snapping the cover easy. I also use plastic trip tools to reach the snaps to release them for removal.

I use the cover a lot in the summer driving locally. Looks great and it does keep the top clean and free from UV damage. For road trips I leave it at home of course, so I can use the top and the trunk.

If you do it regularly you get better at it. Two things - I put one twist in the elastic straps that go down to the snap at the side of the seat backs. Otherwise the strap sometimes vibrates and makes noise while driving. Also, you have to release the other two snaps by pushing the top material near the snap to the rear a bit away from the snap and then reaching down to pull the little cap thingy to the rear just a bit and then it comes right off. When I am removing it I do those snaps in the rear last after the front snaps and after pulling the rear most edge of the cover out of top compartment. I like the suggestion made above to use a body trim tool to release those rear most snaps more easily. I am going to give that a try. Seems like it would make it easier to reach down behind the headrest.

I have one of those travel boot covers mentioned above. It is a good cover but I am not using it hardly at all. It is much easier to get on and off for sure. If someone wants it let me know. Its in perfect condition. Maybe half price and shipping? $75.00?
