I looked at mine, tucked in the corner of the garage, and got a bit depressed that I didn't have the time to get it out even though we're having 90+ degree days right now.

A couple of questions for those of you who park your cars up for the Winter... Do you store it with the soft top up or down? Does it make a difference to the long-term condition of the top? I've only raised mine once in the 3 months I've had it but it's dawned on me that the top may be like canvas sun umbrellas in that the fabric will shrink if it's not put under tension for a long time. To re-stretch an umbrella you just soak it in a whole lot of water but I don't fancy trying that with the soft top.

Even though 99% of my driving is top down, I definitely store it with the top up. Keeps the top stretched out and wrinkle free and dust and shit out of the car. Plus, I have an OEM s2000 car cover over it which wouldn't fit very well with the top down.

I think storing it top down you'd end up with some pretty hard creases in there... the 3/4 areas especially. I store mine with top up.

Mine pretty much goes all the time with the top down

- Summer, top is down with tonneau installed, top goes up once a week to wash, creases go away in a few minutes in the sun

- Winter top goes down and stays down with hardtop on. Again any creases went away after an hour or two with the top up in the sun after removal of hardtop.

As long as you fold the top in by hand nicely when you put it down, putting it back up should be just fine.

I store my cars for the winter with the tops up and unlatched and the windows lowered about a half inch. So far so good.

My hardtop hangs in the rafters of my garage all year long.

I feel like if you are going to replace the rear view mirror then it should be an autodim unit or bust, especially with how high trucks and SUV's have gotten in combination with their much brighter headlights
