Joel,First off, let me extend my complete appreciation for your input on PCA. It is THE reason that I opted to join the club. Thanks for your efforts that have educated me about my car in the past.Okay, that said, on driving my 2000 911 C2 Cab with the engine warmed up, the convertible top closed, and just the driver's side window opened halfway, I notice a draft of hot/warm air blowing in from a vent underneath the dashboard and above the knees/shins.However, if I close the window, the draft stops. Also, if I keep the window open and turn on the A/C, the draft stops.Do you have any idea where this air is coming from, and what might be its purpose? Rather, is this something that can be corrected. My dealer's service department informs me that this is a normal (albeit irksome) characteristic of the car. Does this seem reasonable to you? FYI, my 2000 Boxster S never exhibited this behavior.Thanks in advance
