Roof covers

Being a new Boxster owner I am in "buy all the cool accessories" mode. This one actually seems to have some purpose though. I am looking at these two roof covers. One is meant to cover the soft top when up and the other is meant to cover the cockpit when the soft top is down.

I live in a very hot climate where in the summer it is 105 -110 for days on end and I want to preserve my soft top and the plastic rear window. I am leaning towards the roof cover that covers up the soft top while up because I tend to park it with the top up. (The one pictured below.) What I want to know is whether anyone has one and what is your opinion of it. Also, can the one pictured be used when the top is down?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Roof covers

Check these websites - sure it is with the top down, not half-price like the one below?

Re: Roof covers

I have one that looks exactly like the one in Henry's top and bottom photos, repeated here. (I can't tell about the material from a photo, however.) I got it from California Car Cover (calcarcover.com) which is a big catalog parts vendor, and the cover works very well, top up or top down. The fabric is a medium-to-heavy weight light gray waffle. Velcro loops attach around each side mirror and each wiper blade, and soft tabs tuck under the rear trunk lid; these keep it in place against the wind. It really keeps the brutal heat out of the seating area if you have to park it in the sun with the top down. You might say, well, just put the top up. Agreed, but actually I think the cover keeps it much cooler because it keeps all the light out. I have used it for hot days at the track and found it to be a nice thing to have in that situation.

Below is a link to California Car Cover's page for interior car covers. Looks like it's $60. I am just a satisfied customer.
