    @iolo – my dream car.
    But have to settle for an 03 Beetle Cab – went to Rutland and back yesterday and Mansfield and back today – hood down.
    As TINAS posted – roof off unless snow and rain, day or night, it’s great. WGAS what others may think, I didn’t buy it for them. 😀

    Had a convertible, roof was down unless it was raining. Otherwise, what’s the point?

    And old mate used to have a Dodge Challenger or Charger convertible. It looked and felt ‘right’ with the roof down -long and low like it had been designed that way – and all wrong with the roof up, like an umbrella on a motorbike.

    Lovely car rarely saw it with the roof up

    I saw one of these today for the first time.

    Why they named it after her, I don’t know.

    I love my A4 cabrio!

    Roof down, windows down on the way home from work yesterday was ace. Does tend to use more petrol that way though – but I didn’t buy it for economy…

    Great car!

    One of my neighbours has one of these,

    Besides being one of the shitest looking* derivatives of the mini ,I have never ever seen it with the roof down in the couple of years she’s owned it.
    *note-The picture flatters it ,they look so much worse with the roof up.

    There you go, a spin round the block as I’ve not used mine for a few weeks and top down sweet as a nut. Temp gauge says 21.5C here in Shiney Town and it felt all the better for it.

    Mrs Coolhandluke has a 210bhp Saab 9-3 convertible.

    It’s great, heater on, roof down, getting a sunburned head, nice.

    Its not great being in the back with the roof down, a bit windy.

    We had one of these:

    The problem was it was only really suitable for people of less than 5ft6. With the roof on, I was basically guessing where the road was through ‘reading the runes of the roof lining’. It was a present for my wife tho and I found I loved the whole open top thing (more than she did ironically. Also fitting the roof during periods of ‘weather uncertainty’ was a bit fraught.

    Now we have one of these. At 10 degrees, heater on, roof down and – the best bit – the poor citizens of Cheltenham get to listen to my rubbish 90s rock collection. Double win 🙂

    Hardtop is great. When it rains, stick it up, just like being in a ‘normal car’. I’m a middle aged man and have long forgone any concept of ‘dignity’ so happy to drive around having fun.

    Had an Eos for four years and 85K miles. Heated seats and warm air on the legs and it was roof down when sunny an cold. It has a huge sun roof too, so always felt bigger inside.

    I used to like commuting home up the M40 in the dark with the roof down. too. It was, however, pretty miserable and cold in the back seats. Convertibles should really be two seaters.

    Top down on a warm clear night?? The moon was massive and just on the horizon, what’s not to like? I get the top down on late nights on the coast..

    My best drive ever was over the York moors, top down, bike in passenger seat, 3am after a hot summers day.
