Take a look at this test on how strong and safe a cheap roll bar actually is.
Roll bars are a very important safety accessory for cars, especially convertibles. They prevent the roof from crushing down and inevitably breaking your neck in the event of an accident where the car flips over. Imagine if the roof was down? If your head is the highest point in the cabin, then you're putting your life at risk every time you get behind the wheel.
Roll bars in convertibles have come a long way in recent years. Every roll bar safety precaution has been well thought of. Like BMW, for example; if a driver were to flip a Z4 over on its roof, sensors are able to detect which way up the car is facing and, in a fraction of a second, the roll bars eject up to further prevent injury.
However, with that said, roll bars have become a desired aftermarket accessory for the tuner car culture as well as a necessity in track racing, but like any other car modification, there are cheap ways to do it and the right way to do it.
