I just remembered something, if you say they can't search they can get suspitious and call for back up or a drug sniffing dog. I don`t personally know, so don`t hold me on that. Some places have weird local laws that can help you too, if you know them, for instance someplace in Idaho if a police officer suspects you are having sex in your car they have to wait a few minutes to give you time to get dressed before they can come up to your car if I remember that correctly. They might not even follow those kind of laws though but its nice to know just in case XD just look on one of those dumb-laws sites.

Chrom... that has nothing to do with probable cause. If the officers have probable cause, they are not going to ask. I know an officer that will ask to search every car with 4 kids in it. If they say no, he moves on. But, on occasion, he gets a "sure", so he searches. He's found stuff on a search where he had no probable cause, but consent. Go figure...
