Ok to put the convertible top down when the top is slightly dirty?

First time convertible owner so still learning Is it ok to put the top down when there is normal dirt/dust, leaves etc. from everyday use? Not sure if the area where the top folds into is fully enclosed or not, curious if all the dirt can potentially go inside the car.

I personally wouldn't do it. Normal dust is one thing, but not leaves or other dirt. The Z4 is our 3rd convertible (two Z3s prior) and always kept a brush like this in the trunk.

Thanks! I started driving a little bit before putting the top down so that stuff like leaves fall off but that tool looks good too.

Thumbs up

I would not worry to much- You can alway have the roof coated for water and dirt to help prevent sticking.

Unless you have lots mud and dirt, I would keep it up until you have cleaned it-
