I would stay with the vert. There is nothing like driving with the top down. If someone wants to break into your car it is easier to break a window than to cut through the soft top. Stick with your first choice!!

The old "anyone with a knife has the keys to your car" adage is true, but I've never had it happen to me and breaking windows is a simpler proposition.

If someone wants in, they'll get in really.

Top-up I might agree with you, but top down the vert looks very hot indeed...

Did you watch top gear last night? They're a bit biased on verts!

Weren't they what! They made the male MX5 owners fell real bad too. Don't mind the old TR6 they had on the show though & you couldn't call an original Cobra a girl's car.
