    I've had my '06 Td4 Hardback Adventurer for a few months and I love it. But as the cold weather has come on, the "plastic" Targa panels creak and groan like it's going out of fashion, and is just a tad annoying. Is there a glass version out there that I can replace them with?

    Pardon my naivety!

    You can get glass ones. I think yours were normally fitted to the commercial version, could be wrong though.
