Used OEM Soft Top for $200 or New Trektop NX for $600?

OK I need some educated guidance.
I have the opportunity to buy a used OEM top from a 2008 in excellent condition with all hardware for $200 or should I bite the bullet and but a new Trektop NX for $600?

Help me decide which way to go. Is the Trektop NX worth spending the extra $400 or should I go with the OEM top for only $200…

Here is the top:

I would buy the OEM for $200.00 you really can't get a better deal IMO if you are on a budget then go for it!

I also agree on the used. While I can't comment on the 2007-2009 top, I'm very happy with my used 2010 top. Just make sure all of the accessories are included!

I bought a used top as a back up and for replacement parts too, so I'd vote for the used top....heard too many complaints about the NX top and the $400 can go towards something else that you need....

Sorry you wanted an opinion, I've had one for a 4 months or so. Was tough to zip at first, I found pulling the zippers with a piece of string or wire through the eye hole made it a piece of cake. Oh, and I didn't have any leaks. Hope this is helpful.
