My Ride: '97 M3 | '06 M3
Got rid of my 19" E92 M3 wheels (Style 220) for some Style 219 replicas. The rear 220's needed tires and I really hated how firm the no-sidewall 19" tires rode. So, ended up with a set of 18x9" square wheels with a 265/35 tire all around. Much better!

Took the car out to celebrate 10k miles of ownership - we're at 135k now since October 15 - and drove down the southern part of the George Washington Parkway a bit. Ended up at Mount Vernon for a bit. Was a great Tuesday evening last week with very little traffic and perfect top-down weather!

Just like maintenance I expect that once a month you would have to put the top up. The winter it would be fine to leave it in the down position. Depending on your climate moisture etc leaving the top in the tight up position will leave stretch if it expands and contracts due to the cold temps.

I wash the top with just water, dry it with a towel and keep the car garaged.
