The glass roof is a different thickness than the GRP one, so you will need to change the rubber moulding that the roof seals against if you want it to fit 100% correctly. I have both roofs for my car and the seal is for the GRP roof. The glass roof sits a little low at the back compared to the bodyline and does rattle a bit. i've not had it out in rain, but would assume it would leak...

Graham,

Most people try to replace the glass roof with the GRP roof. Especially for summer use where the glass roof acts like a green house. I think the GRP roof is also lighter than the glass roof.

Now if I had spare cash, I'd go for Dave's Carbon fibre roof.

Regards,

Peter.
