Is this specific to your rollbar?

I'm specifically picking up the "roomiest" rollbar available to try to mitigate this, as I'm not a small guy.

(Edit) rollbar, I don't know where the hell I picked up headbar. I blame soviet.

Start adding fancy gizmos to it and you get a modern, bloated, overweight, electronic nanny that only makes you think you're driving your car, when the car is actually driving itself. You also start seeing a 30k+ price tag.

You should never lock a convertible.

Don't mention MB SL to me right now. I'm getting ready to go to the garage to do some Panzer wrastlin' on the wife's SL. Going to get medieval.

3 times in 4-5 years on my NA, zero times on my NB... probably because the soft top is in the garage under my workbench.

I really just want two things:

Quieter interior
More space in the wheel wells for wider wheels.

That would create a whole host of things I would miss a lot more about my NB.
Edit: For the record, the interior wasn't too loud before I put on my 3" exhaust, so that one is on me.

I really wish my Miata had 150lb of computer bullshit and a dumb screen in the car. This way I wouldn't have to fumble with keys or thought, I could just load my fat in the car and push pedals.

Honestly? A really good sound system, and all the interior deadening to go with it. Would cut down on road/wind noise.

I'm going to go deaf one day, I'm the type of person that blasts music at full volume.
