So I bought my Miata about a little over a month or so ago and then two weeks later found a great deal on a hardtop. He had it on is NA and I have it on my NB now.

I went to wash my car for the first time and I noticed water on the side of my drivers window. Looks as though the window and the top seal aren't meeting all the way.

Anyone else have such a problem?

If you were aiming the stream of water at the window itself, some of the water could well have seeped passed the seal. I had my car washed with the hardtop on, and when they did the windows with the power washer, the occasional drops of water would come through.

They're pretty big, soft seals on the hardtop. I'd imagine your's doesn't let water in like that during rain storms?

The top latches for an NA are different from NB's. You might need to check them out.

Yea the top latches don't really "latch". When I close it, it seems as though it doesn't latch onto anything. My striker plates just came in today but the sun is out now in California so I took the hard top off haha. I'll see if the striker plates help anything whenever I put the hard top back on.

You can also adjust the tightness of the latches, though I'm not sure how effective that will be if your real issue is mismatched latches and striker plates.
