I have no idea what the bubbles on the quarter windows are. Note there are two on each. Anyone know what they are?

...... the little bubbles in the side hardtop glass actually have vent holes in them to help keep fogged windows to a minimum especially in the rain by allowing better ventilation. At 175mph on the Mulsanne straight, it can get very stuffy with the windows closed. So to evacuate the inside air they put a little vented bubble in each side Plexiglas window. It was a WWII trick.
