My first ever convertible (Classica) is still a month or 2 from arrival. I searched this question but found nothing. At what speed, traveling with the top up, should the windows be closed as well to avoid any damage to the top (fabric, frame, rear window)?

Yeah, silly question, but there may be a time when this could happen. Like a sunny day and I forgot a hat for my balding head... Top up with windows down creates a bit of a parachute effect and I wouldn't want to damage the roof in some way. Thanks.

The top has a metal frame that should be able to handle most any speed with the windows down. I guess you should roll them up if you're going to try to set a land speed record, though. I suspect they did a lot of driving with the top up and windows down in testing, so if there were any obvious problems we'd know about them.

Sounds reasonable, thanks.
