Twingo folding roof thingie

Discussion in 'Personal' started by anon3372, May 21, 2011.

  1. Does it really not let rain and moisture in?
    My "dealer" (aka a mate of a mate with a used car place) is saying that it is seal proofed (used car but would be with a warranty).

    I have one of these and I love it!
    I live in Spain and when we get really bad heavy rain it does leak a bit. However, It only seems to drip when I park it at a certain angle overnight and all the water gathers at the top right hand corner! It's never leaked when I've driven it in really torrential weather, like we had this week.
    I don't use the roof foldy-back bit as much as I thought I would as it is quite noisy when it's open and I burn really easily on my parting!
     
  3. hmm, so you have not tested it in snow?

    No, but it has held up well to high temperatures (over 40 degrees C) with no cracking, peeling, splitting etc, so I imagine it would be equally good at low temperatures. I hadn't though that the weight of the snow would affect the roof but you could test this out by lying on top of the car. Spread yourself out and think I am snow, I am snow!

    I was just thinking I could go and test my twingo roof out for you, only later when my husband has gone fishing or he'll think I've gone mad! I weigh 75kg so that should be enough weight.

  7. That is very noble of you. Perhaps you could post the photo as a planking thing on FB or twitter?

    I just tested it but couldn't get anyone to take a picture!
    It seemed to hold my weight ok, given that I wasn't on it for long. [​IMG]
    It's a great wee car and I find it a lot more child-friendly than our other car which is a Mercedes.
    I don't know what that is?
