Anyone else driving with backseats down and hatch shelf out?

    First thing I did when I got home was stuff the hatch shelf under my bed haha.

    I literally have no need for the back seats so I have them folded down. I'm basically driving a coupe with an extended trunk now, but I love it! The road noise is decent, I don't notice it much.

    Now in sport mode the engine noise is blaring from the rear speakers it makes it sound like the engine is in the rear of the car! I may make my custom mode all sport and then turn the engine noise more silent.

    Not me. I don't think my wife and three sons would enjoy rolling around in the trunk.

    I used to do the same thing in my Camaros back in the early 2000s though.

    I'll only fold the seats down for work or sporting gear, but yeah I ditched the shelf right away.

    Edit: oh, worth mentioning that people have had problems with the seatbelts leaving marks on the leather when the rear seats are folded down, so you may want to put a hand towel or something over them if you're leaving them down a lot.

    Being able to get my bike in the back was a big selling point for me, even if I need to remove the front wheel. I traded in my 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe because, even with both wheels removed and the rear seat folded flat, I couldn't load the bike inside.
