Just an observation about the cat as I have had this happen to me with our cat getting up on the convertible top.

When my cat (used to) jump up to the front or rear of the car before jumping up to the top, it would find no sharp angles to land on but a rounded waxed surface. The net effect of this is that a cat will likely put the claws out to get a grip. In most cases, claws = scratches.

After the first time that I had to get the rubbing compound to get some scratches out, I would do whatever I could to scare my cat away before she got near the car.

Something to keep in mind.

'98 Z3 2.8L (no scratches)

Well here goes... If you remeber awhile back someone said this company was looking for some Guinea Pigs for a new product they had come out with. It's a lint roller for your top. Well I responded to them and received one in less then a week. I actually got 2 of them a wide and a narrow one. They do in fact work very well and I can see them lasting quite a while as it only took one sheet of the big one to clean the top. It is, in the simpilist form, a big lint roller, but it has a double sided sticky foam around it in a big roll. When no longer sticky you just peel off the top sheet and through it away revealing a new sheet. I have a cat that is working on his last lives from the neighbors that likes to frequent my top at night. So that means I usually have to get out the vacume cleaner to remove the hair (white on black top), but this little roller does as good a job and with out the hassle of dragging out the extension cords. Any one looking for a top cleaner can look to this product for lint removal I liked it.

**Not in any way connected with Megaroller just telling you how it was.**
