Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black and Dark Blue

Original Fabrics:

The original dealer tops were German Sonnenland canvas.

About The Fabrics: 

Haartz Stayfast Canvas has a canvas outer layer and a preshrunk cotton inner layer. The two are bonded with and separated by a butyl rubber core. It is this core that makes the fabric last a very long time, with both better static and dynamic wear ratings than vinyl toppings. Haartz Stayfast is the American substitute for the German canvases on this page. Canvas is widely regarded as "richer looking" than vinyl. It is a little harder to clean. The inside of the top is pre-shrunk cotton. The inner lining is usually black.

Sonnendeck Canvas (also called 'Twillfast') is an American-made canvas. It is a double-texture topping like Haartz Stayfast. Unlike Stayfast, however, Sonnendeck Canvas has a dobby weave in the inner lining (you can see it when you look up at the convertible top when seated in your car). (Haartz Stayfast canvas has a plain unwoven inner lining.) Sonnendeck looks identical to German Sonneland Canvas and it's usually less expensive than the German alternative.The wear rating of Sonnendeck is also greater than for Haartz, by perhaps 10%. This is due to the slightly heavier inner lining and subtle bonding specification differences.

German Sonnenland Canvas is the original German-made canvas used in the Audi, as well as many Mercedes, Porsche, BMW and other convertibles. The general construction is very similar to the other two canvases on this page. It is hard to tell the surfaces apart among the three. But the manufacturing specifications make this the longest-lasting top. There is an approximate 20 percent greater wear rating for Sonnenland than for Haartz Stayfast. Some of this is due to the abrasion resistance of the exterior canvas. 

Headliner For Manual and Power Tops:
The manual and power operated tops take the same convertible top. However the headliners differ slightly.

Rear Window:
The rear window of all aftermarket tops is sealed into the top fabric (integral with top.)

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.
Warranties outlined here are only applicable for products installed by a professional trim shop or professional upholstery shop. For Convertible Tops, and related products, the manufacturer will void the warranty for any product that is not professionally installed; manufacturer defects are covered by the warranty in such cases. The manufacturer is not responsible for damage due to improper installation.
