Thanks! Your Topaz looks really clean. I'm generally not a fan of grey interior but you pull it off quite nicely with that color and accents. Also love the house

Got the springs in, she went low. Love the stance, much better than stock and surprisingly good ride quality

Wow, Roblynn; that is low, especially for springs. Looks like a coilover drop. Apparently, the Vogtlands and the Teins give the most significant drop out of the available springs on the market....well, at least the reputable ones.

Unhappy My roof wont open fully

Hi
Been having roof problems
First the roof was down got a little cold tried to put it up but wouldnt work
I got home and manually put it up
I then opened it and it went up golded in to compartment but compartment wouldnt lock fully, so i manually put it back up.
Since them now it goes up halfway and when compartment is supposed to open no movement it wouldnt open, the only way go open is manually releasing the motor.
Then nothing, cheked fuse it was blown replaced fuse now only the front inlatches.
When i release the motor and try locking it i cam see the motor is trying to lock it but the curcle button in back seat area doesnt spin fully so i use the alan key and press lock button same time helping it lock and that works with no red light flashing.
I just dont know what else to check
Im goin to check the hydraulic fluid tonight but dont want to damage the foam cover.
Can sum one please help.
