United-Kingdom 2009 possible leaking convertible roof

Hi can someone help, I've purchased my first soft top (before I had hard top convertibles) my problem is since having all this rain my soft top has taken a hammering, the last few night we have had frosty nights as we'll, well what I have noticed in the mornings or when I put the heating on, the inside off the roof turns to rain drops beads and I've started to get mould and condensation on the windows inside. I have been to mini and they felt that 1. I need to get the roof re protected. 2. I might have a leak else where which is causing condensation which is then rising to the roof freezing and then defrosting. 3. Replace the roof or 4. Trading it in because the cost off a new roof is about 2k. I'm not really sure what to do. My local mini service centre have said they have never seen this before so has anyone else seen or had this and know what to do?

You might want to ensure that you leave your dash board vents open at night.

I had a problem with a normal car a few years ago, after leaving it for a while when I went back to it the windows were running wet inside. I was told to leave the vents open so that there was some ventilation and that seemed to do the trick.

It is possible that the roof is the coldest part of the car and that is where the condensation is forming. You might also want to give the car a good run with the air con on to try any dry out any residual condensation.
