New GAHH top installed!

I picked up my car today with the new GAHH top installed!!

First of all, there is no compromise in fabric or fit quality compared to OEM.
It looks great. The fabric is top quality.

The rear window is a little smaller, but driving I dont really sense a big difference.
I am happy thus far. My rear defogger works as well...

I will take a few pix this weekend after I clean the car. I would most certainly
recommend this top to all!

Who did your install? Do you recommend them?

Where did you get the top, directly from the manufacturer?

When you say there is "no comparison" in the quality, can you elaborate a bit more? What's different? How's the padding and noise level?

Thanks! Congrats on your new top. I'm gonna need one soon too...

I didnt say "no comparison". The Porsche OEM is a fine top! No compromise means that it is the same fabric and fit. Looks OEM and feels the same. Actually noise was excellent.. I drove home about 75 mph for a bit and it was extremely quiet.

The feel is supple and fit is perfect. The window in the back looks so much nicer and more high end quality. I had the installer get the top for me from GAHH. He uses them quite a bit.

I had it done at Moorestown Upholstry. Sam is the owner ... The do an excellent job and it was done next day.

Best of luck!

How much did you end up paying... if you don't mind me asking?

Did you go with the German Canvas?

I saw a few posts on here of guys getting them done for $1,150 - $1,200.

I called 7 different recommended GAHH installers last week, and was quoted $1,400-$1,800. And, I told every one of them that I had seen guys getting them installed for under $1,200. Unfortunately, $1,400 was the best I could do.

Mine gets installed next week. Congrats on the new top!

I went with the top of the line GAHH I was told that this is German Canvas by the installer. I paid 1500.00 cash for the entire install and top.

DJA, you will love it!

Best of Luck!

Got the same top (black German canvas) from GAHH installed last month for $1,150.00 purchased from Anthony's in Tampa, Florida.
One of the best investments I have made so far. I strongly recommend instead of getting the plastic sewn in again.
