You mean the facelifted Sebring that they're pushing as an all-new car?

Drive, or own?

I think I'd most like to drive the Boxster, because I've never driven one, and I am curious what all the fuss is about, but I'll never buy one to find out.

Own? Yeah, the 135, unless I wanted a Spec Miata for the track, but that's not really what they're asking.

Lotta iffy reviews on the 200. But I give Chrysler a lot of credit for keeping that thing going -- there's a lot to be said for reasonably-priced verts, and there just are never that many models to choose from.

I really love my 135i as a convertible. I had no idea it would be so quiet with the top up -- it's easily the quietest soft-top I've ever driven. You can actually hold a normal conversation at 80 mph, and at any lower speed it might as well be a coupe. Awesome. (I love the 3-series hard-top verts, but I'm glad they went softie with the 1er -- I use that trunk space!)

I'm sure there have been some more expensive softies in the past that were quieter, and I imagine the hard-top convertibles are even quieter still, but it's a lot quieter than the roadsters I've owned in the past (and my Solstice even had a headliner).
