Default Ebay soft tops

Thoughts on cheapie ebay soft tops? It seems for 200 bucks you can't really go wrong. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWAX%3AIT

For a little bit more go for the prestige top on ebay. Its got rain gutters above the windows that keep the rain from rolling into the cabin when you open the door. You can also crack the window and rain wont get in as much. Great top and I think it was about 350.

I've had one on my car for ~4 years now, it still looks good but just got a tear in it. I'm pretty satisfied with it, especially for the price, and will buy again.

I just bought one from this seller, but with a glass window, rain rail, and defroster. I haven't installed it yet but the quality looks decent. The seller actually called me on the phone the other day to see if I had any install questions and to make sure I was satisfied with the product.

I bought mine from an ebay seller who is into Parrots.... Can't remember the name, but the fitment was great, although the instructions were mediocre at best. I bought a cloth top with plastic window and no zipper.... Look of baller, but priced for a popper.

I helped a friend install a $200 ebay soft top 3 or 4 years ago on his miata. It still works great and the install went easily, well as easy as a top install could gor for a few guys who had never done it before.
