worn spots on roof

I saw a post about this a while ago but didnt pay much attention to it.
I now find that I have two worn/thin areas ,one on each side below the corners of the window. I cant find what has caused this. Any Ideas and any experience with the dealers about this...???

Did you get my post on PPBB??

The mechanic noticed it also, but it didn't matter as he was going to replace it due to leaks and it bubbling.

Were they distinct worn spots?

And did he offer any info about other cars having this problem?

VERY distinct...

As if it were being pressed up against something. He didn't mention any other cars having the same problem though. Here's the catch...I noticed them quite sometime ago when the weather started to get warmer. Also noticed that the area near the rear window had formed some creases as well. THEN noticed that when I washed my car it would leak around the side windows near the windshield and top area. I took it in to have the leak repaired and a creaking sound fixed in the drivers side door latch. They adjusted the windows to fix the leaks and replaced the top mechanism for the creaking sound. Well much to my dismay the creaking sound is still there and the top still leaks. AND since I got it back from the dealer the top started to bubble. The mechanic noticed the creaking sound when I picked it up from the dealer and said to just bring it back and they'll have the top replaced. The top was only lifting(bubbling) 1/4", but it was enough for them to replace it. They won't replace the top with those marks on it, because it would be considered wear and tear. At least that's what the mechanic said. He told me to keep complaining about the leaks and the bubbling. He also mentioned Porsche stands behind their convertible tops as being the best and anything like my situation is unacceptable.

Hope this helps a little.
