I replaced my top, it was $569 on Ebay and quality is excellent... Haartz Stayfast cloth, looks a lot better than the original vinyl IMHO. Then I paid another $600 to get it installed by a pro. Others have installed their own, but I'm not that guy.May I also ask how much the new top was? I'm needing a new top too.Is it canvas or OEM.
I just completed a 5300 mile road trip from Atlanta GA to Lake Elsinore CA and back, trouble-free and only spent $447 in gas. That's about the price of a one-way plane ticket, and I didn't have to rent a car when I got there. I had a blast exploring mountain roads in multiple states along my path.
