The Spider is back (finally!)

Well after 2 months of waiting for it to be repaired following the lorry incident, ive finally got my spider back, just in time for the rain

To say i've not been too happy with the amount of time it took the garage to fit 2 body panels is an understatement! Anyway, the work seems reasonable (apart from a couple of niggly things like not putting seals back properly etc) and the paint is spot on so I cant wait till the sun comes back so i can enjoy the thing!!

Anyway, I do have one worry/question:
I pushed the button to put the roof down last night (WITH THE WINDOWS FULLY DOWN) and nothing happened apart from a feint 'click' coming from the door. Tried again, the same happened. I put the windows up slightly and tried it and it worked perfectly. I'm sure it never used to do this, but just need clarification really. Does it sound like they've messed up a sensor in the door when they replaced it?

Re: The Spider is back (finally!)
