Roof down in the rain
Jun 24 2011
So, it started raining the other day while I was on the M25 with the roof down. I discovered that, as long as I kept above about 40mph, I stayed dry.
However, the rain got heavier, and for about 5 minutes, I was in a torrential downpour (it was difficult to see out of the windscreen). At the stage, I found the rain blowing up and over the windows, and spraying into my shoulder, the seat, and the roof mechanism.
My questions are:
a) any advice re driving with the roof down in the rain (e.g. windows fully up, speed etc)?
b) is it likely that rain splashing into the roof mechanism will damage it at all?
c) is it technically illegal to stop on a motorway to put the roof up?
