I've noticed that if the convertible top protective cover is left folded in the trunk, crease marks appear that look like dirt stains or bruises. Has anyone experienced this effect? Would leaving the protective cover flat eliminate the crease marks? Before I call the dealer, does Volkswagen maintain an inventory of replacement protective covers for all colors like cream that can be purchased 3-4 years later (end of lease period)?

Re: Creases in convertible top protective cover (Rimvydas)

yes leaving the cover flat will help prevent creases to occur. That is why we recommend customers to put their top up at night or when storing the car. The stress on the material, plus temperature changes can cause permanent creases in the top, and if the top is dirty, permanent dirt marks. The same goes with just about anything, including your boot cover. You can try the dealership for a new boot cover, however it might be cheaper to find an aftermarket one, maybe even cheaper to have an upholstery shop make you a new one.

Re: Creases in convertible top protective cover (Rimvydas)

I actually have one that I would like to sell. I sold my Beetle convertible awhile ago and just found my convertible top cover. It is tan and still in the original plastic bag. I am willing to sell it CHEAP since I have no use for it. If you have any interest, let me know (you can email me at [email protected])

Re: Creases in convertible top protective cover (s2000brian)

What was the color of your fabric cloth top? My car's top is the cream color. I suppose tan is the matching color, but the Volkswagen dealer described the boot cover for my car as "cream-beige".
How much are you willing to sell it for? Can you e-mail me a digital photo? My e-mail address is <[email protected]>.
