    Probably been asked before, if so please excuse this relatively 'new boy'.

    My 1990 3.4t Mondial Cab owners manual does not recommend leaving the hood(soft top) down for long periods of time as it will leave fold lines.

    Anyone like to comment with their own experiences?

    Cheers Kevan

    I´ve read that, too.

    In the summer I left the top down, day and night, even when I left the car in the airport parking lot, b/c the handling is quite unconvenient. I also figured that as a side effect leaving the top down would reduce the stress on both the structure and the fabric of the roof.

    So far no fold lines.

    Thanks for your comments.

    By the way what are the alloy wheels on your Mondial?

    Those are 17" wheels from OZ. 205/50 at the front, 235/45 at the rear.
