You're kidding, aren't you? If you don't want to put the top up so you can drive into your community, transfer the sticker onto a lollipop sign that you can wave as you drive in.

Another 1st world problem solved.

Of course the easiest solution is to simply put the top up thanks for your suggestion by I consider it as practical as carrying the car through the gate

So is it a rule at your gated community that the sticker has to be on that exact place?

What about residents that have totally permanent topless cars like the Atom? Surely you and the management of the gated community can find a spot for the sticker that makes everybody happy with you top down.

There are two driveways at the entrance one for residents and one for visitors or deliveries but this can get quite contested at times so I imagine those cars with the top permantly down can go in there when I bought my previous car they placed the decal just slightly off and the gate wouldn't open
