all of the above, it just depends on my mood swing

since the Z4 can sit unused in the garage for a while I usually prefer to leave the top up to keep it from getting creases, if I know I'll be taking it out soon I may leave it down, the spiders and dust don't bother me as much as taking a few deep breaths of diffusing interior material chemical gases if it's been sealed up for a long time in warm weather.

We have so many spiders and crickets and other creatures. There is no way I'd leave my window or sunroof open if I parked in my garage. (Every morning I get tangled in cobwebs that have formed overnight on my porch! )

I'm more afraid the plumbing that runs along the garage ceiling will spring a leak and drown my baby than I am about spiders and such.
