Post Boxster 2006 Convertible Top Wear Issue

Greetings to All. I've just joined the Porsche family! A little history... please no nasty remarks, but I have moved on from the Miata. I bought my 2010 Miata when it was a year old. I owned it for 18 months and put a couple of thousand miles on it. I sold it for $400 less than I paid for it - how can you not like a sports car like that?? Mazda was fun, but I was anxious for something more exciting. I bought my Guards Red 2006 Boxster (19" wheels) with 5,700 miles. It looks brand new and included the car cover. It is obviously a blast to drive! Everyone turns to watch my Porsche go by - hardly anybody gave the Miata a second look. Anyways, on with the question: My convertible top shows two wear lines (one on each side of the car). The fabric is being frayed where it folds during the opening / closing process. I spoke with the Porsche Service department and they said I shouldn't be concerned. They claimed this is normal and that the fabric won't wear all the way through. I did, however, see elsewhere on the internet where Porsche apparently replaced a convertible top under warranty for this same defect. I plan to treat the top with 303 Fabric Protector. Any recommendations would be welcome. Thanks!

Is your care still under warranty? If so, why would you bother with the top? If you see more lines on it, go talk to your local Porsche Service and if everything is ok, the should change it for you at no charge.
