the windows are supposed to go up an inch higher than the vent-windows and standard model have them.

replacement rubber for the hardtop is a tough find. there are 3 sets. one for the windows, one for the front, and one for the rear rim.

you can find the one you need in stock at this link:

There is definately something very wrong with your car. I would have it looked at asap!!!

The tip off being that your Spider is watertight with the soft top up. It is not supposed to do that. :)
Ciao Siciliano! Friulano here....

You need to check on the RE Originals "Lateral Side Gaskets" #10070320 @$180. They show no picture.

My Quad's OEM factory top has continuous gasket from window to window across the top (inside), one piece. So what part are they providing?

I have researched the factory top gasket issue and found that 2000 - 2005 the Acura 3.5RL door gasket (on the door not the frame) may be a good fix candidate. Also have a look at for profiles.

Keep us informed..

If reoriginals cant help out you may want to try out of Germany.
They list the parts your looking for and price so hopefully they have them in stock.
