If he drives it on a Summer day, he will buy the convertible. :-) As for the handling, you can tweak it to where it doesn't matter even if you drive aggressively. Admittedly, the sedan is a more stable car (the vert even changes with the top up or down) but I think the fun factor outweighs any minor handling differences. Driving should be fun. >You >also get much better visibility (for safety). When the top is up, yes. But visibility with the top down is 100%. So, as long as you keep the 'vert top down a lot in the warm weather, *average* visibility will be better in the 'vert. >Oh and find one with a 6 >speed if you can. I agree. Don't buy an automatic in a car like this. <snip> But, drive the 'vert on a warm day... or a Summer night. There's nothing like a drive on an 80 degree night with the top down. Bob
