In the 2 years I owned my TT roadster, I NEVER used the top cover. Should
not have any effect except maybe that your top may accumulate dust/leaves
that settle in that area when the top is down.
What's a "top cover"? The "hood" (as we say over here - the cloth bit that
keeps the rain off, as opposed to the "bonnet").
Only driven top-down to 148mph - top tip is to turn the radio up before you
hit around 135mph, as it gets a bit noisy and, at that speed, you should be
paying attention to things other than the ICE!.
You also lose the bass, Bose notwithstanding. Top-up driving limited to
about 75mph (if it's too wet to have the top down, then it's too wet to play

That cloth thing up there = top in this colony. Your hood. You guessed

Will try to keep it under 148. Police here get very nervous above those
speeds, and they'd feel the need to talk to me about mine.
Thanks again. Yes, that little space at the rear of the "bootrunk" (New
English) is handy. I have a warning lamp in its box, and two large map
guides of the Los Angeles area jammed in there. They don't move, are quiet,
and don't slide around the rest of the vast (!) space wrecking themselves --
when I hasten around a corner, for instance.
