Second Scotiez, I'm in Maine and went through my first winter with it last year, up here it gets pretty damn cold, and I cracked my back plastic window clearing snow off of it and it was only 10 F outside. So just be cautious. This winter I have an '03 HT that will hopefully do the job. But don't waste your $ on a brand new top. Go used. Takes time, but you'll fine a good deal.
