(a) make the car a garage queen that stays indoors under a full cover except when being driven with the top down in fair weather.
(b) spend a WHOLE LOT more time working to keep it clean than you would a black or other very dark color top.
That is especially true of canvas tops. Lighter-colored vinyl tops are somewhat easier to clean than canvas ones but still not as easy to keep a like-new appearance as any dark top.
: I am looking at purchasing a 00' MZ3, probably Blue/Blue and am not sure which top to go with.
: I saw a used one at a local dealer and with only 14,000 miles it looked pretty worn. My 2.3 black top with 17,000 mi still looks new.
