Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black, Titan Gray, Dark Blue and English Green

These Cabrios are descended from the Rabbits, Cabriolets and earlier Cabrios manufactured since 1979 and modified as the years went by. Volkswagen made changes in order to "upscale" these convertibles (and their sedan cousins.) In particular they offered a canvas fabric for its dealer convertible top for 2001 and 2002, in addition to vinyl tops.

Original Topping: The dealer tops were often made of Sonnendeck (Twillfast) Canvas. This is a very durable and beautiful fabric. It has a woven inner cloth and a fabrication that makes it extremely durable. For many owners, especially those considering self-installation, putting on a Cabrio Vinyl top might be more cost effective. (The labor cost of installation incurred a little faster than with canvas is not a factor when self installing.) We offer these tops in Sonnendeck Canvas and in Cabrio vinyl.

Original Colors: The dealer canvas tops were either black, green, or dark blue (with rare exceptions.) Vinyl tops were black, beige, gray and white. (We are offering the 'Cabrio Pigskin grain" vinyl. Twill VW vinyl is not available in the aftermarket at this writing.) We will be happy to provide a Sonnendeck Canvas top, or a Cabrio vinyl top, in any of the colors shown. Please review the scanned swatches via the above links and jot down your color choice. You may specify it in the checkout message box.

Our Manufacturer: We are pleased to be a Germanex dealer. This manufacturer specializes in German convertible tops. The tops are manufactured as original, from original patterns, with correct detailing and structural aspects throughout.

Premature Window Damage: Some owners are experiencing unhappy shattering of the rear window during normal operation of the top. This is probably due to a combination of the tight design in conjunction with normal vibration wear. This 'street experience' has led us to develop a plastic rear window version for this top. The dealer replacement top has a defroster rear window installed in the top, as original. The plastic rear window top uses a 40 guage polyvinyl rear window instead. The plastic rear window does eliminate the danger of rear window shatter.

Hold Down Cables: Installation of the new top requires the insertion of VW cables through the side cable hems of the top. The cable ends attach to the framework and tie down the top fore and aft. If your top has not frequently been raised and lowered, it may be feasible to re-use the existing cables, removing them from the old top and installing in the new one. New cables are listed as accessories, below.

Headliner: The headliner (inner roof lining) may be lowered and re-used in a top restoration job. However, if your headliner requires replacing, we do offer the beige cloth headliner. It is listed with accessories below. If you wish to change the color of your headliner, please inquire as we can have your headliner custom made in other cloth colors.

CONVERTIBLE TOP FABRICS
Almost all manufacturers use Haartz fabrics. They may specify "heaviest weight" or "original replacement" in ways that seem reassuring. But they do not really tell the whole story. Please bear in mind that two things dominate, by far, the quality issue: (a) the manufacturing quality control in the factory that makes the top and (b) the care and thoroughness of the installation. There is a trade-off in weight: heavier is better for resisting tear through, but lighter is better for flexibility and abrasion from within that may arise from movement. Almost all our tops are a flexible medium density (36 oz.) fabric. Heavier is not better in most cases. Where it is, because of the top design, we will say so and the top will be made of the heavier vinyl.
