This used to be the thing I hated the most about my dad's 4k.  I always 
kept the vents shut (so does he).  After the thread a few months ago, I 
decided to give it a try.  I drove the car from Seattle to Tacoma and 
back (2 hour round trip) in the pouring rain.  The car has brand new 
Dunlop D60-A2's, which seem very suceptible to hydroplaning compared to 
the oem Bridgestone Potenzas.  It made the drive quite 
entertaining...having the cool air blowing on my face helped 
considerably!  Now I miss it on my Jetta.
