Default Best Brand Replacement Top

I am in need of a new top, due to vandalism, but I am concerned about proper fitment. I read kenp thread (see below) and this worries me. That's a lot of money to put out, come to find out, the top you received was not cut or doesn't fit correctly.

Save for dropping $6k on a full custom top, does anyone know of a top that properly fits?

I'm interested myself. My wife's convertible needs the top replaced, and I want to know that the one that I purchase will be OEM in quality (or better) and fit.

I bought the Haartz Stayfast top to save some money three years ago and i got a puncture hole that looks like from rubbing. not a slice or cut but maybe moving the top up and down. Looking back I should have bought the OEM and not the one that is "like" OEM.
that is my advice; when i replace mine AGAIN i will pony up for the "real OEM"
good luck

Boat top shops are the best at installs for what I've seen. they are used to the heavier materials. I had one do a MG a few years ago and it came out great of fit and lack of flop..

I'm looking for the best brand top and who has the best prices, not an installer, but I appreciate the help

I need one for my CETA. I guess Robbins is the one to get, but I'm going to check with having one custom made.
