No leaks at all (even through tropical storm Francis with an inch an hour rains), but I do have a seperation around the lower left part of the window. It was glued before the homecoming trip and has seperated again...so the top will be replaced here shortly. From what I understand, the seperation is a common and reoccurring problem.
4/'98 2.8l Drk Grn/Beige/Black - 17" - sport bun warmers - Wood steering wheel, brake handle and trim - Dinan chip, strut brace, and free-flow cold air intake snorkle thingy, modified theBaba/Mike K. Borla Turbo Muffler & Inter-Cooled Tips exhaust - yada, yada, yada - and power top (real roadsters don't have no fuggin' power top!)
: I had my top replaced 5 months ago and two of the problems I had with the past top has appeared with my new one. The material is seperating from the plastic seam around the rear window on the outside in the upper left hand corner. The exact place the last one seperated. Also, the damn thing is leaking over the passenger seat window again. Right where the rubber seal joint is. I have taken great care to lubricate these seals all summer. Aarrgh, it makes me want to ditch this thing and get a 328i or an M3 hardtop.
: I love this car, but this top is the pits.
: Any similar experiences out there??
