You do have some legitimate concerns, especially the throwing **** out the pano roof issue.OK. So seriously, I'm concerned about how I'd fare going from a wagon to a sedan. I've actually never owned a sedan and I'm not sure my concerns are valid. It's been nice being able to fit big **** in the back of my car no problem, especially bikes on the roof with more stuffed in the back without removing wheels. I also just had ~400lbs of firewood in the back last month and I don't believe the SS would play as nicely with something like that.
Also, while it may sound stupid, I'm not sure I can go back to the regular rectangle sunroof. I love having a panoramic roof. Makes throwing large objects at cars behind me so much easier.
I can't really compare - I went from hatches to this. And reasonable people know that hatchbacks are no more space efficient than sedans when the rear seats are up. Less space than a real trunk, actually.
Maybe you should have bought Geoff's G8 so you coulda had both...
