Neither my stock hardtop or carbon hardtop has a rear center bulge. Somebody have pics of the "problem"?

Thanks lotuscrit.

To answer the question about the bulge, it occurs at the rear center of the top. It basically looks like the top has a slight bow to it, either from not being molded right to maybe just the way people store them. Enough of a problem for Lotus to make a fix for it. The top won't come flying off or anything, it just sometimes makes a whistling noise at higher speeds and just lets in a lot of road noise at lower speeds. The fun part comes with drilling the holes in the hardtop for installation.
