Well, my driving is probably too conservative for me to get to that point. Can't help here. Sorry.

As a side note, from the onset I wished that the car had better crossflow, some kind of a vent to allow the air to flow through without using the (noisy) fan. Noticed how the pressure increases when you close the door and both windows are up, the roof sort of pops up? (That was how very few of us discovered the tridion/roof sealant issue a while back.)
