However, if you're going to routinely have back seat...

Congrats. I picked mine up a month ago (3/30) and I certainly don't regret my decision to forgo the roof.

While still a bit chilly, today is a fantastic convertible day here.

Open the trunk, and pull down the divider that separates the trunk contents from the top. It folds up to give you more space, but you need to fold it down to lower the top.
