I use (and only have since having my 07 S built) only 303 products and as of today the top looks brand new with no leaking or fading. I only wash the top about once a month using 303 cloth top aerospace cleaner and once dry coat with 303 waterproofing for cloth tops. On the washings that I do not do the top I use a hand held vacuum to remove dust and assorted airborne contaminants. Spot clean any bird droppings etc that cannot vacuum up. It is not necessary to wash the top every time the car is washed and doing so will cause the top to fade over time. One note: when applying the waterproofing make sure to mask all surrounding body work and window glass from overspray wiping off any that gets on painted surfaces or glass.
Hope this helps someone.
