If you want your car covered in bird poo, the tires to go flat, and the battery to die, take your car to Mike's! – I strongly encourage you NOT to have your car's top repaired/replaced at Mike's auto tops. The owner, Mike, is a particularly aggressive and inconsiderate individual, with no apparent desire to help his business grow.
SHORT STORY - He does not have manners, does not call you when he encounters a problem (you have to call him), and puts you to the last of the list when he doesn't want to deal with your car. Your car will sit under his tree, and collect bird junk, while the battery slowly dies, and the tires go flat while you wait for him to fix your car.
LONG STORY - I took my BMW 328i to have a couple rods in the convertible top replaced, and a motor fixed/replaced. I took the car to Mike's, and he wanted me to bring it back the next day to look at it. No time, just bring it by. I brought it back the next day and he said that he was too busy, and to come back another day. I am patient, so I arrived the next day, and he said he would look at it. I left him my keys, had to write my number down on a piece of paper, ripped from a receipt, and 5 days went by without contact. I called him, and he said that I needed these parts - He said that I had to go to the BMW center and buy them myself, and then bring him back to put them in.
Bought the parts, came back, and another week went by. I called him, and got "Oh, there is a stripped bolt in here (magically?), and I need someone to remove it - I'll take it to my buddy, he'll do it." Another 2 weeks went by.... This continual process of me check on my car EVERY week went by for over a month before I finally went to the location, was told that "He simply can not fix it," and now I have to JUMP START the car because it has been sitting in his parking lot so long - the car is covered in bird junk, and the tires are flat. AND I have to hunt down another person to fix the car - I'm back at ground zero.
