I am wondering if any one has run across on Amazon some genuine Mini Water Proofing for the convertible top, preferably that qualifies for prime shipping? I ask because my local dealer (Mini of Seattle) charges an arm and a leg ($12.50) to ship that bottle to my house, but it is also a pain to drive an hour and half just to save on shipping. I am in need of some, But I really don't feel like spending It's bad enough that I have to pay Seattle sales tax on it of 14% so it cost 4 on a $12, I don't want to pay almost half the cost of the item in shipping, to ship it all of 82 miles. (super slow too)

Go to Amazon and order 303. Only other quality competitor is Ragg Topp, settle for nothing less.

On Amazon with Prime or you can pick it up at Wal-Mart.

This is what my friend uses on his Audi TT vert and nothing else.

I used that Kiwi stuff on my raincoat, it's not as good as 303 convertible top cleaner/protectant.

The stuff above beads on Driveways and Concrete.

I use it on grill covers, deck chairs, deck umbrellas and carwash shoes.

Never used the Kiwi product before. I've always had great luck with Ragg Topp.
