But confirm with others before buying. I do not now and have never owned a 'vert.

I orderd mine from that guy a few years back.. comes with a zipper to zip it in, all you will need is a needle and some thread to sew the end down after you zip it.. be sure to get a friend to help you when you put it in, as its likely you wont line it up right the first or second time you try and will have to unzip it, move over a few teeth on the zipper and start again.. the kit from that guy also comes with the glue you need.. he makes good conv. rear windows.. and even offers them tinted for like 20 bucks more.. he was also selling them on ebay when i bought mine from him..

The bad reviews about emiata products are almost all people that had problems installing the window inserts correctly. If you follow their directions and are careful, they apparently work fine (I wouldn't know, since I've never owned a cabrio). Don't blame the manufacturer for operator errors.

100% satisfied with emiata. Do the install correctly (may take you a few tries to line it up properly, especially the first time you do it) and you won't be sorry. the material he uses is much better at resisting scratches and is more flexible in colder weather. I've had mine for almost a year and no fade or blurriness yet.

He can be a little quiet on the communications front, but just put in the order and wait a few days for shipping. You won't regret it.
