The Tesla is my first convertible. I ordered the car with the hardtop (received the car last November). With the weather warming up, I went ahead and put on the soft top. Generally, when I park the car for an extended period of time (several hours) I'll put the soft top on. If I'm just pulling into a restaurant for lunch (maybe 1/2 hr or so), I leave the top off rather than take the 60 seconds required to put the top back on. On a different thread I've read where some bozo's like to trash a convertible parked with the top off. So what do you do, always park with the top on or leave it off for stops of less than 1 hr? Of course its always on if there's a chance of rain, etc.
