Having had both, the premium top is a huge upgrade for both quality and sound levels. This one is the closest to hardtop of any I have had. The spring assist also helps with lowering and raising the top as well, I really like it.Door surrounds are on, but he gave me the wrong ones. I replaced them and the fit is good. The top is a lot louder than my hard top. I found a guy who's willing to sell me his 2014 premium top with door surrounds for $700 in the box. Does anybody know if the premium top is a huge upgrade in durability and sound dampening? Will the 2014 top and door surrounds fit my 2011?
