    Swap convertible tops?!?! PICS!

    Hey guys.

    My father recently purchased a used 2005 boxster S. It is a guards red/stone grey with a stone grey top. He wants to change the top to black, but it seems that the top with labor will cost about $3000.

    I was wondering if there was anyone on here that wanted a grey top instead of their black one. The top is in flawless condition.

    Also, if anyone else has advice on what to do, it would be appreciated. $3000 is a bit steep for the swap. Thanks!

    Here are some pics of the car with the top...



    Re: Swap convertible tops?!?!

    Are there any soft-top rennovation companies out there that will tint the roof to black? (Use boot polish perhaps? )

    Seems like a big headache to swap the entire roof on TWO cars.

    Re: Swap convertible tops?!?!

    I think the stone grey looks amazing on red!

    Re: Swap convertible tops?!?!

    Thats a good looking car, I'd be tempted to leave as is.

    First red one Ive seen with the classics, MMMmmmm

    Re: Swap convertible tops?!?!

    I'd leave it alone too. The car is quite pretty as is.

    Re: Swap convertible tops?!?!

    Yea...The car doens't look bad at all with the grey top. However, since my father's preference currently is a black top, I thought i would inquire about the possible options for changing it. It is still possible that he will leave it as is.

    Re: Swap convertible tops?!?!

    With Grey int., I'd definitely leave it as is. Looks great!
