Is the top removable by 1 person?
Well, it's not that heavy, but you'd have to have about a ten-foot wingspan to get the thing off. Even then, you'd probably scratch when you tried to step out of the car while bench-pressing it. You could design/make a spreader with a hoist and perhaps drive out from under it, but then what do you do with the thing hanging from the hoist? Plus, your garage would probably have to have a fairly high ceiling to facilitate this. I've only managed it with two people.

Does it have a glass window?
A nice glass window with a defroster that hooks up automatically when you put the hardtop on.

When it rains does rain pour in like it does with the softtop?
Can't say it pours in, but I did notice recently some water had gotten on the softop while I'd had the hardtop on and driven in the rain. It worries me somewhat, but I'm planning to take it to the dealer and let them fool with it.
