    The Spider manual says that the hood should not be left down for any protracted period to avoid damage. So I've been putting mine up every time I put it to bed at night. But the dealer I bought it from had the top permanently down whilst it was in his showroom - and I guess most other Spiders for sale would be displayed the same way.

    Am I being too careful - or has anyone else actually had problems with leaving the hood down for too long? How long is "protracted"??

    The hood folds look worse over time if the hood is left down, I did what you are doing during my ownership of 360 Spider and the creases looked far less when I sold the car to when I bought it.
