I have a question regarding my convertible top. I was told that it is not a good idea to keep the top down for an extended period of time. I have a garage, and would prefer to keep the top down at night if I am going to drive with it down the next day. I have been told that I should not do this and to put it up every evening. Does anyone have any additional information on this subject? Thanks for the advise.

My experience with 2 different BMW convertables is when the top is left down for an "extended" period of time, the material has a tendency to shrink making it very difficult to put at later.

I agree, if you leave the top down over extended periods, It seems to "shrink" and is very difficult to put up and latch.
