For me it's because I have the sport package and wanted to run narrower and non-staggered for my winter setup. Plus I like the OEM 18" rims better so I keep them on there as long as possible.

I believe when that happens the car displays 'trunk not locked' or something similar. It's a different warning than the roof can't move.

I agree about the misalignment. It appears to be cosmetic only. The pop/boom sounds like it's coming from the hydraulic pump area underneath as opposed to the roof package or lid up top. It's a...

If I look with a flashlight, as the trunk is closing for the final time, I can see the pins locking on both sides every time with plenty of clearance, so that's not it. And the roof package is...

Congrats, Kat! Yours and mine are two weeks apart on the delivery date (to us), so I guess that makes them twins separated at birth. :)

It shouldn't do this and needs to be adjusted. The anti-pinch mechanism is detecting the window hitting the top too hard and going back down. Dealer should be able to reset it.
