Yesterday i was crusing on the highway, top down, at above 70miles/hour, and a light rain started. The cool thing was that not a single drop of water entered the car. Did some else noticed this?

Yes, just don't stop unless it's under a bridge or overpass... :D

I noticed the same thing a couple of days ago on mine. Stopped under a bridge to put the top up and never got a drop of water inside the car.

Yes, I can drive through pretty heavy rain with the top down provided I stay at or above 80km/h. Only my hair gets a bit wet but in the summer that's a joy.

Just make sure you don't do that in very heavy rain (when people start having their flasher on)! :D
You'll have jacuzzi by the time you're done :eek::D

Wonder what the science or engineering is behind this? Surely, there's a limit to the amount of time this can be done before the inside gets soaked?

OJWerks, how long were you driving in the pouring rain before putting the top up? I've only driven about 3 minutes (in light rain) before stopping (under a bridge) to put the top up.
