After having my top replace by the dealer the top will slap on the spar/rib when I go over rough spots, slamming the door shut or if I have the windows down with the top up. I haven't notice the back window moving but don't drive much with the windows down because I don't want to hear the flapping. Dealer said its a normal sound but it hadn't been around before the new top. Having put on new tops in other verts there seems to be some break in time where they put the fabric on super tight knowing it will stretch out, makes me think these are too tight or to loose cause or ills.

I don't have the issue with the flapping. I did however have an issue the top was not secured by the rear window as seen in this doc here.

I had a lot of road noise when this happened.

Got the ss back. They did a great job. Top looks great. I noticed that there is no stitching across each bow now,? Is this normal ? Can someone takes pics of their top so I can compare? Wind noise road noise is not there what so ever. Lots of weather stripping lube to dry areas is what I'm reading on the ticket. Brand new top. Love it

Sweet, great news bud, are you talking under-neath the roof or the top of the roof.., I thought the stitching was done under the roof on all models ?
Glad you got a new top, this should be always the case, when things like this continue to happen on a part

Congrats on the top being fixed & let the perm-a-grins commence once again
