The hardtop does more damage to the car than winter does.

Mine ended up marking the soft top as the parcel shelf of the hardtop is clamped down on the folded soft top underneath it. You will probably also get some mould possibly growing on the soft top if its not 100% dry when you fold it down before fitting the hard top. You can easily scuff the trim around the location holes behind the rear seats when installing and it also rubs your paintwork off at the top of the a pillar and along the top of the front window frame.

Unless you get it fit absolutely perfect it rattles and bangs whilst you're driving. Other than that.......it's great.
