First...I love this car...no question about that, but....nothing is perfect.
So, I wish, wish, wish...

I wish it had a zip out rear window....I miss the one on my NA often...

On these high 90º days, with the sun beating straight down, top up, rear window down....miss it.

You?

An aircraft hanger garage like they have in the USA or a double garage even as some people have here....in some ways it's just as well I don't have the aircraft hanger / farm shed as I would fill it with......Big Healey, MGA, MGC, TR4A (surrey top) and.....wait a minute ....sorry Bob Mate, I nearly started a thread within a thread there.....Cheers

There are a few things I wish it had, but when push comes to shove, none of them are showstoppers for me in any real capacity. But regarding the OP in this thread, I prefer having a glass rear window because it has defogging/defrosting wires in it. If it's a sunny day, I drive with the top down. But if super hot, I just put the top up and, depending upon traffic conditions, roll the windows down for some additioanl ventilation. It's a trade off I'm okay with because I appreciate having the rear window clear to see through on humid or really cold mornings. And for those that winter drive the vehicle, even more important. IMHO.... after all, it's what you like or want that's truly important, not what anyone else thinks per say.

When the time comes to replace your roof, maybe you can get a custom replacement done for the rear window and have a zip-off plastic version sewn in for you.

No plastic windows....not for me. LOL...
I was spoiled by my Robbins top, on my NA, with the large, glass, zip out window.

Yeah, I have dropped my wallet down the side of my door a few times. A habit from my previous car.

I am happy with a glass window and no zipper. Not sure I would ever use it. Thankfully, I only work a few miles from home. I drop the top, enjoy my morning drive and the sun does little to bother me. If I lived further away maybe I would have a different opinion.

Oh yeah.... forgot about that. Likely because I fixed that with mine as well. And heck, while we're at it.... how about a display of all the tires' pressure and temps read from the direct TPMS sensors, including which tire they're reporting it from.

Seconded. Our other three cars have a handy diagram. I like the way my Alfa "equalizes" pressure readings. There's no way I get both front or rear tires to the same tenth.
