This includes OEM German Acoustic Canvas fabrics and OEM color options. Haartz A5 Canvas is imported from Germany and truly is a premium quality topping for the Porsche Boxster.

* high level acoustic canvas available in black only. Other colors use premium 3-ply German A5 canvas that has also been acoustically enhanced but not rated high acoustic by the manufacturer.

Manufactured using premium German (Sonnenland) A5 high level acoustic canvas. This is an upgraded material compared to the OEM original raw material is imported directly from Haartz Germany. The canvas is an acoustically enhanced three-ply composite made of an acrylic twill weave outer fabric, a rubber inner layer and a polyester lining fabric.

It has a silkier finish, is longer lasting, and has better acoustic properties than the standard A5 fabric. What makes this top special is it is manufactured with the Black German A5 Acoustic Topping material, which is noticeably quieter. AutoTopsDirect.com is one of only a select few in the country offering this material to the aftermarket. It is available in Black only.

4 of 5 Porsche 986 Boxster A5 Acoustic Top May 8, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Terre Haute, IN United States  
Ordered the above-referenced top and rec'd it in approximately 5 days. The price was fair and the shipping was timely. No complaints there.

However, I was never able to download installation instructions; the web site says they'll be available for download after purchase. I contacted the company on two separate occasions -- via direct email AND by using the "contact us" form -- and requested information on how to receive the instructions. No one replied.

I ultimately paid an installer to replace the top, so this did not have an effect on me -- he knew how to install the top -- but this COULD definitely affect others.

5 of 5 Replacement convertible top for my Boxster May 16, 2016
Reviewer: Jim Harrell from Rockville, MD United States  
I had several aftermarket sources to select from to purchase a replacement convertible top for my 2001 Porsche Boxster.  I choose Auto Tops Direct based on their price and my 'gut feeling' as I examined their products on their website.  The top arrived in short order, and looks as good, if not better, as the factory top it'll be replacing.  I'll be tackling the replacement myself, probably after I take the car off the road for the season.
