Hello from a new owner in Southern Maryland. I picked mine up on Wed. New 2017 Premium in Flip Chip color (silver-blue). Dealer couldn't find a buyer so my deal just kept getting better. I have been very happy so far. I have had several convertibles and this one is amazing. The top open/close speed and ability to operate at 31 mph will be so convenient when the weather changes. Actually, I have taken advantage of that already.

I am still learning all the buttons and functions. It has more features than other cars I’ve owned.
I have a question.

Is there a way to get a text display when the top has completed its cycle? The beep is not loud enough to me. I tried turning up the chime volume but then the turn signal volume was annoying.

If anyone finds out a hack to be able to open the top with the key fob, I would be very interested. I understand this feature was disabled for US sold vehicles.

Welcome aboard! And thank you for signing up. I'm not sure about the text display, so I'll let somebody else answer that. In the meantime - what did your Cascada replace?

I had a 2005 Chrysler Crossfire. Fun car but it was becoming a non -stop chore for me. And the lack of space was a problem.

I got an answer on the text for the top operation cycle. It doesn't display when done but it the cycle is stopped too early it will show an error. So if I let go when I think it's done, I'll get a confirmation by not seeing the error message.
