Here are some of the questions we received from customers this week - they may help you as you are searching for the right convertible top or seat covers for your vehicle, too!
Question: I would like to replace the convertible top for my 1984 Porsche 911. Can I substitute a newer model year Porsche convertible top with glass window, in place of the original style top with plastic window? Thanks, Steve.
Answer: Great question Steve! Unfortunately, there is no way to replace the 1984 Porsche 911 plastic window with a glass window; this is true for all of the earlier model Porsche 911, 912, 930, 964, Carrera 2 and Carrera 4's. This is because the first Porsche convertible model that came with a glass window from the factory was the 2002 model Porsche 911/996 Carrera Cabriolet; this model has a re-usable glass window. Based on this model, TopsOnline.com is able to offer a replacement glass window top for the 1999 through 2001 Porsche 911/996 Carrera models, which replaces the original style plastic window convertible top. However, this type of replacement is not available for the 1984 model 911 convertible that you have.
Answer: Actually William, the BMW E36 convertible top does not have any padding between the top and the headliner. Although some similar model years' European models - such as the Jaguar XJS, Mercedes CLK, and Audi A4 - did come with padding, the BMW E36 convertible did not come with padding. This is good news - your top has one less part to buy when you decide to replace it!
Question: I recently bought a top for my Peugeot 306 and I am very pleased with it. I am interested in getting replacement seat covers for my Peugeot; when I checked your web site, I noticed that I was not able to select the Peugeot for replacement seat covers. Can you help? Thanks, Sharon.
