Top down and windows up is for old real estate agents driving their BMW convertibles!

I don't have the vert, but my first car was a Lebaron GTC convertible (I was in highschool/college, bear with me haha!)

One of my biggest pet peeves is people with the top down and windows up. I generally try really really hard to see other peoples' points of view but this is one where I don't even want to listen after "Well, but SOMETIMES you just..." No! Its a convertible, use it for the air!!!!

It should be automatic that when you lower the top, the windows go down (like they do now) and the window controls get disabled.

Top down, windows down.
Period.

Only tourists are allowed to have the windows up. Even then I'm going to downshift on you...

Pet peeve of mine. Why the hell would you buy a convertible to drive with the windows up? Proud convertible owner since 1988 when I got my 69 SS 350 Convertible Camaro. I can honestly say I have never had the windows up when the top is down. Unless the wife put up her passenger window which is rare cause she never rides with me. If it is above 45 the top is down. Top down season in Minnesota is to short to have the top up.

They only go up if the wife gets cold or briefly if I take a Bluetooth call while driving as I can't carry on any phone conversation when they are down. Yesterday I saw a worse sin in a convertible all the windows down top up when it was 75 and sunny.
