I'm preparing for the hot summer here in SoCal. I park my car at the train station outside so it gets beat up by the heat/sun.

I just bought one of those back seat covers for pets. Hoping covering the top and rear plastic window will make it last longer. I do have a form fitting cover but don't want to hassle with it everyday. Thinking this may not be so cumbersome putting it on the top only.

Will take photos once I get it.

I have a California Pop Top and it works great for this. The down side is that someone could cut the straps and walk away with it, but that could happen with anything. It works well with the top up and down, is very lightweight, rolls up into a football-sized bundle and washes in the washing machine. C11 is the right version for the Z3's.
