Reviewer: John Wright from Derbyshire    5 Stars

I’m really impressed

The quality and fit are excellent and the workmanship is top notch. I fitted the top over the weekend and the instructions were easy to follow and everything was right first time. It looks great and I would recommend it to anyone considering a more usable solution to British downpours than the standard Caterham hood. Thank you Softbits for sevens.

I use my 7 alot and when I park it at work I always put the half hood on (English weather). I have 2 easy in zips which I wouldn't be without as it makes getting in my s3 with tillets easier. Very easy to fit and one of the first things I bought for my 7. I can't get in my 7 with the full hood and that stays in my garage since I bought this half hood.
