ROTF - Actually, it's being careful about how close you are to things in the rear when you raise/lower the top - or at least that was my first close call!

Seems like every other time I park in the garage I walk around to the back again and ask myself the question, "Okay, is there enough clearance if I pop the top?" And, "If I close the garage door, is it going to take a bite out of the rear of the car?" If the answers are Yes and No respectively, then I close the garage door.

I would be sick if something hit something...

Strange prices, I would have expected the hood to cost the most, not the trunk lid.

It helps having an open beam ceiling in the garage...great clearance!

Probably because the trunk hatch has more moving parts attached with the roof stowing mechanism.
