    GM claims a 16 second time, but watching this with a stopwatch it seems to be about 12 seconds up, and under 11 seconds down. I suppose there's a little lag between pressing the button and the start of top motion, and if the windows are up waiting for them to do down will add a few seconds (that's probably where the 16 seconds comes from: 4 seconds to drop the windows + 11 - 12 seconds for the roof), but it seems the actual top motion is a good bit quicker.
