I know, but it really hasn't been an issue here. And no debit card. Spare use of a charge card. I believe in minimizing exposure to known threats. Kinda like Mission Impossible.

If it's a hardtop convert, I wouldn't think it would hurt, just protect it from scratching and pitch. If it's a soft top, same thing. I don't think a tree is heavy enough to damage anything.

Looks really nice. Interior is nice too. They've always had nice interiors. How dependable are they? Haven't been great lately. Way back we had an S40, and liked it very much.
