The roof wont lower...goes through a sequence of seats moving forward and impailing me up against the steering wheel and then clicking noises behind me, like a relay sound.
It's a normal part of lowering the top, suggest looking at the steps in the owner's manual. But it's like tying a bow tie, frustrating at first but easy when you get the trick.
The trick with mine is to unlatch the roof using the lever above the windshield, then push the top along with the thin crossbar above your head
up a little bit, gently, before using the switch to lower the top. When you get the beeping sound things are fine, just let off the switch for a couple seconds and resume. It takes several stops and starts to complete the lowering.
At motorway speeds the car seems to sway sideways going over undulations....shocks? Its a lot better in 'sport mode'.
I feel that a little in mine too. Seems the spiders are better suited for cruising around and showing off than hardcore track duty.
Can anybody tell me how you can tell if the exhaust crossover valve is working...I have no other car to compare mine to.
Stomp on the gas and take it up to the redline. Around 4000 or 5000 rpm the bypass valve should open and you'll feel an extra kick of power and hear a higher-pitched and louder (but smoother) exhaust note.
Don't be surprised if your bypass valve isn't working. Mine wasn't when I bought the car, and I simply wired it open to enjoy the F1 sound full-time. It can be very loud idling and launching at stoplights however.
