    I would like some feedback with regards to cabriolets

    I would like to buy the wife a cabriolet but not sure which one to go for. I have had a look at the peug 206 and the new Colt. Has anyone got either of these and what do they think of them? The car needs to sit 4 but needs to be a smaller size. Anyfeedback would be very much apreciated.

    hardtop is the way forward.

    just bought a citreon c3 pluriel. its great fun, everythings electric so its easy to open it up.

    buy quick before the warm weather starts and the prices rise.

    This is the thing If I dont buy soon the prices will shoot up.

    Forget the 4 seats & do yourself a favour..........

    Buy a Boxster - a proper cabriolet!

    hardtop and ac FTW!

    A Peugeot 206 Cabriolet does NOT seat four people comfortably - even if the two at the back are kids, it is not very practical... Oh and the Colt looks awful but I guess it's down to choice. What about a Micra cabriolet?

    To the person who suggested a Boxster - perhaps not a sensible suggestion given the two original cars suggested - if you have no sensible suggestions - don't suggest at all!

    Not such a silly idea as he didnt mention if he wanted a new car or not. You can pick up the earlier Boxster models between 8 and 10 grand

    mmmmmmm boxsterrrrrrrr

    Just had a test drive in a 206 nice car with room for the fids to sit in the back. I had a look at the Micra but dont like the bubble shape of the car. The 206 is a more of smoother drive than the Colt. £6500 for a 02 reg with 39000 miles on the clock. Will need to look around to see if this is a good deal or not.

    Hi
    Bought the Renault Megane cabriolet. It seats 4 and is very comfortable. (we have 2 rugby playing lads and they can sit in the back reasonably ok at a pinch but best with only two. It has the same mechanism as 206 (friend bought 307 version which is about the same as the megan - but I prefer the Renault). Was able to negotiate a deal by citing internet prices to local dealer and get 22% discount of main dealer with £500 extras - bluetooth & reversing sensors). Great spec inc 6 cd changer, electrics, aircon etc.
    Briliant that roof can be stowed in about 1 min by just presssing a button.

    Buy either the 307 or Megan and enjoy. We used today with roof down & heater up - excellent.
