Driving with the top closed, but rear window up

Greetings,
Has anybody ever had to load something too long in the car? So you press the open button just long enough to load the package in the car though the raised rear window, and drove it that way? When I describe raising the wear window up it's not sticking straight up but more straight out parallel to the ground.
I have done this a few times. Almost like the BMW where the back window goes down.
I just have to know.
Thanks,
Liquidsilver

Nope, haven't done that. I just put the top down all the way.

I just put the top all the way down. It seems that would work but I imagine you get to listen to the beeping noise it makes when the vehicle moves with the top not fully secured.

Make sure you do this for short trips 'cause in the manual it states that after a certain period of time (4 minutes I believe) the top tries to go all the way where is closest to (If it's more than half open it will try to open after 4 minutes of not pressing a button and vice-versa)

I’ve done it a few times. It was drizzling and didn’t want to get the package wet
