Probably a good deal. I bought a 250 dollar ebay top with glass window and it works great.

Yeah?
I thought about that; but I have some concerns. The old saying of "you get what you pay for." comes to mind. Not nocking you at all. I would love to save some money but I don't know.

Edit...
I just answered my own question. I found a store that uses hartz material and gives a 5 year warranty. Rain rail,cables,glass window w/defrost shipped for 325. Thanks for the heads up.

I never really looked into this. I always heard they were cheap and just dismissed as being cheaply made.
Thanks again.

The site says the common practice is to re-use your existing rain rail. I thought the factory rain rail was riveted to the top and needs to be drilled out to be removed?

I love my prestige top. I can open my windows in the rain and it doesn't come pouring in since its got a little gutter above the windows like the NC tops. Got mine for 250 bucks from ebay as well. Looks good.

Well i just pulled the trigger on the Auto shop top from ebay. I spoke to John. Great guy to deal with. I got the black top with glass window,rain rail,cables and the 5 year warranty for 299. shipped.

I should have by Tuesday. I got the econ R/R and he said that if I have any problems with it in the next 5 years, that he would replace it. I don't know if thats common place,but its nice to know.
