So how does this work?
Where are the 'zones'.  Is it front and back seats or side to side?
Does it work particularly well bearing in mind the sensor is on the drivers side?
Does anyone use dual climate control?
I like to drive cool 14-16C, my wife prefers warm 20-23C is it realistic to imaging half the car at 22C and the other half at 15C?

it's the temp that blows from the circular vents more than ambient temp and its side by side so the 2 vents on your wifes side will blow 20/23c at her and your 2 will blow 14/16c at you the ambient temp in the back will be somewhere in between
 
hope that made sense cowpers

A roof box would be safer as she won't have to actually hold on all the time and it is more streamlined. LOL
If you have the glass roof you can cut a hole in base of box so you can still see each other and a walkie talkie would be an option. LOL
Beware of wind chill at higher speeds. LOL

Please don't be offended. All in jest.

If the roofbox method is used it can sometimes obscure what is other wise an excellent view. I have found that this method works better............ no idea about the temperature as I cannot hear her.
you will have the added cost of a towbar though LOL

I'm not keen on the trailer, often makes the cost of ferries more expensive.
The roof box is OK but I'm not sure any of you has thought this through as during the winter it would have to be me in the roof box!
Being serious for a moment, how often are you collectively referred to as a bunch of muppets? :-)

In answer to the original post - my partner and I are similar. It does work (and work well) but I often get the impression that i'm sat in a cold room near a source of heat (if that makes any sense) and I find carefull aiming of the air vents helps with that. The system works better if the fans are set to a higher speed (you don't need to go mad, 50 percent is fine) and works best if the car is moving. It also helps if you turn off the button that sends air to the rear seats over the ceiling of the car.
