When we bought the car, my wife wanted the hard top. So we got it, and it came installed on the car.
Last weekend I finally got around to popping off the hard top. I found I really enjoyed driving a convertible! Never had one before.
Certainly it's easier to get out with the top off, but I also find it's slightly easier with the soft top than the hard top. There's a nice edge on the hard top that can catch the top of your head if you're not careful. I think the hard top is also a little wider. So I was quite happy to leave the soft top installed for now, and maybe switch back in the fall.
Today there is a forecast for showers and a possible thunderstorm. My wife insisted I put the hard top back on, because she doesn't believe the soft top would be the slightest bit waterproof!
I know there's lots of owners out there who don't have the hard top. How do you find the soft top works in bad weather?
