First and foremost, keep the Tanneau cover pulled across the back. Just think of how much more cubic footage you are cooling when it is open. Side effect of of less interior noise with the windows open. Keep your revs just off idle when at a stoplight right after starting the car and stick with recirc using the main vents as the recirc input seems to be down low.

Parking? Leave your sunroof cracked when possible. Also, after being parked for a long duration, a quick trip around back to open the hatch drops the interior temp quite a bit.

The MCoupe is not an easy car to cool because of the odd shape of the interior cabin with a dividing wall.
