I had to drive it with the ragtop again now.
The difference in aerodynamic drag is quite noticeable.
It coasts noticeably worse than with the modified hardtop.
Where I maintained speed with the hardtop, I'm now slowing down.
And where I slowed down slightly enough to be a ble to compensate by speeding up before, I need to use the engine.

I wouldn't be surprised if the modified hardtop gave me a simmilar CDA to a Gen 1 Insights.
But I'd still need to measure that...
