I just bought my 2014 Coupe. Is there a way to turn off the spoiler so it stays down all the time? I can see an advantage to keeping it down in freezing rain, etc.

Between my wife and I, this is our fourth MINI. The GP was a coincidental find. I'm very pleased. Looking forward to SCCA and local MINI owner events later this year.
