Do Roadster Roofs Leak?

Hi All,

Just wondered how watertight the Roadster roof are once a few years old? Obviously depends on how rubber seal are treated Iím guessing, know I always used Gummi Pledge on previous convertibles which helped.

But generally how are they, I do use the local hand car wash if the jet wash it will I get wet feet?

No they don't leak but if you shoot a jetspray upwards on a window then expect some ingress down inside of side window. Not recommended to use a jetspray on any convert to be honest.

Never had a leak in the 4 years I had mine. After a wash with a pressure washer there was a dribble down the inside of the window. It that was it.
