I have never seen, in print, any mention of a little hidden shelf behind the convertible's faceplate between seatbacks. A raised lip around the perimeter is apparently to stop things from sliding off. Is there a purpose other than extra storage? My arm can't reach it while seated; have to get out to reach in. Anyone know what's behind that beautiful, slick panel? Looks like it should open into a neat little compartment, if only for papers or maps.

I have no clue what he's talking about. Picture please. The only thing with a raised lip is the small recess behind each seat where the speakers are. Visible, definitely not secret.

No, no! There is another shelf behind that emblem. Stick your arm into the opening behind the panel (high up)-- you'll feel it; a very nice, smooth tray.

Thanks! I didn't know that was there either.
But it's not real easy to access, so what would one put there?
Now if the waterfall opened up, that would be a bit more convenient way to access it. Anyone know if it opens?

I found it! Never knew it was there. What the heck is that is the plastic lipped shelf for? You can't easily reach the shelf from either side of the waterfall. The seat backs, must be folded forward, to access the shelf. PE009 asks a good question: Does the waterfall open up?

I doubt even GM knows about this.Probably A fluke in the design.I imagine if they knew it would possibly be A selling point

That looks like it might be an electronic module. The idea GM doesn't know about it is laughable, they designed the car. I suspect it's a piece of electronics used by the convertible mechanism.

Perhaps it is for something in the future, much like the open section of the housing between the mirror and the windshield on the 2014's that ended up being the place the ended up going.:cool:

That's not quite as secret as the "secret storage area" in the S2000. In the S2K it is located in what would be the "waterfall area" if the S2000 had one like the C7. It is very useful for hiding all sorts of things.

As you probably know Chip on a few S2000 forums it is often a question to new members if they have figured out the secret compartment.

On the C6's it is where the wiring for the radio is..if you wanted to hardwire a jack for MP3 player, you do it from here. in a coupe, you have to pull the unit out of the dash to accomplish this...dunno why...also a great little place to hide stuff. I use mine to put my DSLR in when top is down and I am away for a short while

I was fascinated by my discovery of a hidden holding tray, given its raised rim, but not mentioned anywhere by anyone. Maybe it's better kept unpublicized (I hide stuff from my wife in there).

I have a walkie talkie with mic/speaker used when caravaning on road trips to talk between cars. That looks like a great place to hide the walkie-talkie itself with only the mic sticking out. any thoughts?
