Drop Top Protection ??
 
Hi All,

Been a long time but im back as an E46 nut, yes I went a long time without as I sold my previous 330CD Sport but I just picked up my nice new 320CD Sport Cabrio M-Tech last friday.

My question is as this is my first ever drop top naturally I want to be able to keep it in tip top condition. Now seeing as I live in the UK where its notoriously bad for wet/damp conditions I want to protect the roof as best as I can.

I have bought a top half cover to use when the bad weather arrives but want to get some recomendations for sealant/protection to keep the roof immaculate anyway. I have come accross turtle wax, autoglym, and 303 which appears to be used for marine/boat canvas roofs but so far looks great for water not prenetrating it, which in your opinion is the best/easiest to apply and provides the best water resistance/sealing?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, apologies if this has been asked before as I did do a search in the forum but could not find a thread similar in question.

EQ :excited:

Ragg Topp or 303.

+1 on both, heard nothing but good things about them. I used 303 and liked it.

I use 303 on mine as well and it has done a good job, I would recommend it. If you do get 303, buy the cleaner as well from 303 to prep the ragtop before you seal it with the repellant.

Cheers for the reply guys, much appreciated, I bought a cover at least for now and am hoping to get a hard top with winter coming. I think so far I like the 303 seen Renovo on youtube looks ok too.
