The convertible may take more effort to care for, but in the end, nothing looks better than a sporty convertible. The same applies to the luxury vehicles. People like you pay good money to ensure that they feel on top of the world every time they drive. The combined vehicle, a luxury convertible, is therefore essentially a dream car. It combines aspect of prestige and cool like no other vehicle out there. Naturally, owners should take great care to make sure to maintain this appeal as long as they can.
However, the fact of the matter is that a convertible top is not made out of metal or fiberglass like the rest of the vehicle. The material will either be canvas or vinyl, both of which will eventually lose their visual appeal due to wear and tear and the outdoor elements. About the longest a car owner can push the life of their convertible top will be 10 years.
The rest of the car can last a lot longer than that, so from a visual standpoint, keeping a worn out convertible top on a car that's in good condition doesn't make sense. Especially when dealing with the luxury convertible breed, for which looks play a large part. In the long run, replacing a worn convertible top is a small investment compared to the overall benefits of a luxury convertible.
