Smile Bed covers

I just got my turbo last week, found it on the web, a used 2004 with 8000 mi., owned by SOA. Had to go 125 miles to buy it and again to pick it up, but it was worth it. I got the features I wouldn't have been able to afford if I bought new. I'm loving it. it is very quick and a pleasure to drive.
I have been looking at bed covers, and was going to go with the snuglid until I found out they sell only through dealers, and the closest to me was in St. Louis, and the price is 4995. plus $150 shipping. I called my local dealer, they told me there have been some problems with the snuglid, they carry the Penda and sell it for about $950., no shipping. This is about $200 less than the snuglid, and I am very interested, but I would like to see if anyone here has installed the Penda, and what they think.

Whoops! The price for the snuglid was $995.00, NOT $4995. Hit the wrong key. My typing skills are practically non-existent

Where near Philly are you located? You can try Snuglid through Mid America at 866-768-4543. I didn't go with the Penda because of the channels were more prone to leak. My local Subaru dealer user to sell them but stopped I was told because of complaints and returns. Don't know if that's the truth or not, just what I was told. They still can get the Snuglid.

Post Try the dealer

You might want to check with the dealer. Mine did the lid for $1100 installed. I've seen it for 995 + shipping online & it's a bulky item so shipping is $100+. That's the same as it cost me installed & I didn't have to burn the hour or two to do it. Probably a wash. If I could have found it for less than $1000 including shipping I would have done it myself but I couldn't.

The dealer did an excellent job and even washed the car for me.

Very interested to hear about your results. I am ready to place an order too but can't decide which one. I can get the Penda for several hundred less then the snuglid plus have it installed by a local dealer. I am concerned that the Penda is not as watertight and can't seem to get an answer on how or if you get the tailgate to lock. Does anyone have the answer to these questions?

Thanks!

Exclamation Locking tailgate

When I checked the Penda did not allow me to lock the tailgate. Between that & the reduced watertightness I decided the Snuglid was worth the extra $.

I purchased the "home-made" cover that was shown on the forum , thru EBay for $364.00 including S & H a few months ago; I like it with reservations...but much more than Snugtop or Penda (from what I have seen & read); I do not know whether it is still available; EMail address of maker is ROYALHOMESERVICES@comcast.net;contact me prior to sending any $$$ though at bojok9s@lynchburg.net & I can tell you all about it.
