Yes. Find an Audi A4 Cabriolet. It still has the practical, bourgeois + sandals image, 4 seats and FWD, but isn't based on a Vauxhall Vectra with the torsional rigidity of a blancmange. ;) The previous model had a lot of excellent closeout contract hire deals, so there will be a lot of ex company ones lurking in the right places. You will even get similar economy to your Golf if you choose the right engine. Richard (yes. I'd like an Audi Cabriolet, but not as much as a Mercedes E-class Cabrio. Good luck finding a good one of those for 8.5K, though!). -- RichardK - 1980s in a can. Retro computing - Cars - 2004 Beetle Cabrio, 1989 Supra 3.0i, 1990 Sera, 1989 Volvo 740 MidiGuitar, AU/X.
