rear view with the soft top on is not good, I must admit. Then again, this probably is a problem for most convertibles? at least you have a proper glass rear window, and not a vibrating piece of plastic! I can't say I'm troubled with rear sight when driving, and -at least in my case, being 175cm,- taking off the rear headrest wouldn't do any difference (by the way: CAN you take off the rear head rests?? Can't remember, have to look before next drive...) -Having said the above, there is a particular junction close to my office where my road enters a main road at an awkward angle and coming down a steep descent. A problem in any car, but with the top on I can hardly see any of the traffic behind and to the right as I enter the main road. This is due to the broad "C-post" (correct term??) in the top hiding the main mechanisme of the soft top. (Co-workers: you are hereby warned!) Reversing and parking is another matter..... Rear sight was not too good in my previous 1995 900 sedan either, so I guess I'm accustomed to go by the side mirrors only and have aquired the necessary 6th sence as to where my car ends..... Of course, when the top is down, none of the above is relevant. Rear view is unbeatable. Get the car! EinarH 1996 900S CAB (current) 1996 900S sedan PS.: the "Reversing 6th sense"'s cousine, "Where is front corner when turning in a thight spot" is quite useful, too. Due to curvature of front bumper, I constantly amaze my wife when getting out of those parallell parking situations. She, by the way, hates parking the Saab.....
