Summers arrived.. 🇦🇺

Hi all well Summer has finally arrived… :uk:

Having only just purchased a soft top we are now debating on while the roof is down do we leave the windows up or lower them … ?

Sorry if this has been mentioned before but we are thinking along the lines of … if the windows are left up this would offer a little more protection from the sides like stones or other hazards…

Love to hear your thoughts…

Please forgive me if this sounds really stupid… :joy:

I do both but the radio does sound better with the windows up.
Windows down if your wife wants to discuss household tasks…….!!


Yes we do both, depending on speed and roads you are on. If I’ve got the aircon on then the side windows up help with the cool airflow.


Ah yes…those were the days you could do what gets you jailed now. :wink:

In the summertime when the weather is hot
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather’s fine
You got women, you got women on your mind
*Have a drink, have a drive * :skull_and_crossbones:
Go out and see what you can find

If her daddy’s rich, take her out for a meal
If her daddy’s poor, just do what you feel
Speed along the lane
Do a ton or a ton and twenty-five :scream:
When the sun goes down
You can make it, make it good and really fine

We’re no threat people
We’re not dirty, we’re not mean
We love everybody, but we do as we please
When the weather’s fine
We go fishing or go swimming in the sea
We’re always happy
Life’s for living, yeah, that’s our philosophy

Sing along with us, dee-dee dee-dee dee
Da doo da-da da, yeah, we’re hap-pap-py
Da da da, dee da doo dee da doo da doo da
Da doo da-da da, dee da da dee da da

Windows down, you look weird leaving them up! Admitedly I do pop them up between about 3 and 7 degrees to keep the heat in the cabin, and also if it gets rather hot out to keep some cool air in. To minimise buffet on the motorway if travelling alone it’s often remarked leaving the passenger window fully up is optimal.
