Had GAHH top installed today, nice upgrade

I had a GAHH glass window top installed today on my 2001 Boxster. Looks SO much better than my torn plastic window. I had it tinted as well. VIsibility is not as good up and down but side to side I haven't noticed a difference. The installer said not to lower my top for a couple of weeks to allow the material a chance to stretch so I haven't got to test it that way, but I'm really pleased so far. Makes the whole top look like a Porsche should instead of cheap like the plastic window looked on mine. If you are debating this upgrade and you have a torn window, I think its a no brainer.

Mike

98Boxster98,

I had Winslow's Auto Trim install it. They are on Garland Road in Dallas. They charged me $585.00 plus a few bucks for the tint. Take care,

Mike

Hi Marc,

Looks good, what did you do about the defroster? I ordered the cable loom from Sunset Porsche as they had it $50.00 cheaper than my dealer. Just wondering if you had a custom alternative or had to use the cable loom as well.

Mike

Thanks Mike,

I had my top installed through a Porsche dealer, they just made a custom cable for me. I had the dealer do it all because it was paid for by insurance due to my recent break in and I like the idea of a dealer standing behind the work.

Wow, the top looks great ! I am suprised how much smaller the rear window is. No more "Boxster Chop" for you. Congrats !

Prestige Porsche, the sent it out and have it done, then when the car comes back they align the top and wired the defroster.

So far I have been really pleased with Prestige.

I kinda like the smaller window, looks a little mean

I wont miss the "Boxster chop", thats for sure!

Some inside pics of the GAHH top
Took them tonight with a flash.
The headliner is the same stock factory one from the old top.
