    I just got my vin 2907 (what an amazing driving experience!) and was wondering if other people are able to program their trunk opening at essentially any height. I have been unable to program mine lower than about 77" off the ground (tip of spoiler to ground). I am able to program essentially at any height above that 77" off the ground-max opening. But, the very lowest part of my garage is about 75.5" and I wanted to make sure I don't hit anything.

    Thank you!

    BTW....mine is a 90d without premium and I didn't get the bioweapon defense mode button (i saw that others without PUP still got the button). Not a big deal but a difference that I noticed.

    I'm 77" tall, I wouldn't do well in your garage.

    Hahaha! I'm 69" and have room to spare! Its only 77" when the garage door is opened, and with the metal hinge hanging down.

    I did set mine to not open fully, to keep the spoiler from hitting the garage door when it's open.
    After banging my head for the umpteenth time, I am really hoping that a future software update offers some fix.
    1. Let's put the spoiler down when the car is in park. This will clear the way for the hatch to open a bit further.
    2. Allow different opening heights to be set based on GPS location. I usually remember to duck when getting into the trunk when the car is in the garage, but for some reason, when loading the trunk at the grocery store, I seem to always bang my head. Lots of clear sky above....

    Or..having a single click close the hatch from its adjusted position and a double click raise to max height....

    Presuming, of course, your spoiler has the ability to lower itself. :rolleyes::p;)
