I purchased a ARE Z-series back at the beginning of January and just had it installed recently. My experience could not of been worse. So I had to pay $1000. down to order it. When I went for the install I had to sign a invoice/contract that had all sorts of disclaimers including that they wouldn't gurantee it to be weatherproof. When it was finnished I went outside to check it out and it was covered in white dust from the polishing. I asked him to clean it so I could check it out and thats when I discover several paint blemishes. The hardware was rusted all over and the aluminum rivets were corroded. He handed me the keys and they were even rusted. The third brake light was crooked and he stuck tape behind it and acted like it was good as new. I've owned several Leers XL and XQ models, and I've never had an experience like this. Come to find out ARE uses salt at their plant during inclimate conditions. They(ARE) didn't even say they were sorry. The dealer has been very uncooperative and it is probably going to be going to small claims court. If you order a top, be careful about what you sign, request that the top be clean prior to your arrival, and inspect it prior to installation.
