Something I noticed last weekend, open the sunroof to the normal fully open position on the dial, once open turn and hold the dial a little further and it then opens all the way.

You dont want to open it further than the normal position when driving at speed though as it just develops the wind wobble sound (sure there is a technical name for this)

Do you mean wind buffeting (sp) If you open more than one window it usually disappears. :smiley:

 :laugh: TOtally true!

YOu don't have to open the roof fully (by holding the dial), you get chopper sound at something like 70kmh with roof opened normally and windows closed

Awesome, i hadnt realised about holding the lock to close/open your windows! have been annoying my friends today by asking them to leave them open and then standing back and slowly grumbling 'woooooowwww'. Good list, thanks!  :wink:
