Not sure if you're aware, but it's recommended to not leave the top down for extended periods - it can cause the top to develop creases and potentially impact the operation. The manual basically says to put the top up any time you park it.

Tell that to dealers that leave tops down, for months on end in showrooms.....

Aware of that but 3-4 days in an insulated and air conditioned garage isn't really going to make a bit of difference

If it is any longer then yes, top up, battery tender plugged in

I bought the showroom car that sat for almost 8 months with the top down. Happy to report that the top is doing fine. The only issue I had was that it rattled pretty badly on bumpy roads. I had to take it in a get it adjusted under warranty - it's fine now. No de-lamination of the glass or wrinkles approaching 30k miles.

How cold are we talking about?

Drove mine the first time in 90 degree weather Sunday. I hated to stop for lights.

I've driven on the freeway with the top down with the temp as low as 40F. If it temp gets to 100F, the top stays up and the AC gets cranked.

Ive done that in sub 30F in shorts and a t-shirt and never came close to being cold. Ive also driven from Vancouver to Vegas in June with the top down, fried my nose pretty badly but it was awesome.
