I thought about that too. I know id always be wanting the S convertable and at the end of the day id rather have an S than than a cooper convertable. I think id miss the power to much and it'd be like going back a step.
I also thought about this-Power wouldn't bother me so much by doing a Step down-Only thing putting me off is being called a Hair dresser!!
Also the Big downside with the Cabrio is it looks Pants when your driving about with the roof UP-
Have to agree - hairdresser with under powered car
I like the convertable it does look good could only ever have a JCW S or an S model but (haviing had a convertable in the past) It's great to have the roof down at the moment but after maybe another 3 or 4 weeks of the year, the rest of the time it will be up due to crap British weather Anyone ever tried driving with a parker on and the hood up when its fully zipped up - good job they have parking sensors as you wont see a dam thing with the hood up.
By the end of September when the weather is getting bad and the noisy, cold roof is up .... then your'll be missing ur MCS. Personally I would only consider a convertable as a second car in this country (UK) but I can't say I know what the weather is like in the Netherlands .... any better?
