Default My only disappointment with my new TL

I recently bought an '04 TL w/ manual 6-speed. Given the color (White
Diamond Pearl), interior (Quartz) & trans (6 spd.) combination, and
the actual driving experience...I definitely picked the right car!

But there's one thing that bugs the $^*(&@$ out of me, and I'm hoping
someone out here has an idea:
On a nice day (or any day!) - after a rain, car wash, or morning dew,
I might like to get my TL going with windows down and sunroof open.
The problem is that water runs in from the 4 windows like it's
pouring. If the car isn't dry outside, water STREAMS inside. It
seems that Acura left off any water channels on the top of car. This
is very disappointing, since it can be 30 minutes of fast driving or
more before most of the water runs off. In the meantime, I have to
keep my windows closed or suffer large amounts of water dripping in.
Dammit!

Anyone else notice this? Is there something I can do to mitigate?
Any advice is appreciated!

Yeah, that's my one big annoyance too. I doubt there's anything one can
do about it short of redesigning the roofline.

Haven't experienced it yet. Around here, we're still driving with
windows closed and the AC on.
