Description:
I've got an itch... and the only cure is a convertible...

...so, my dad has put the worm in my ear... I finally have a good paying job, and my Mazda2 ain't getting any younger... I *may* go take a look at a Miata retractable hardtop in the near future, just to see what it's like... I dunno... who knows what my reaction will be...

Wow. Holy shit. Nevermind... god damn sardine can. Nice car, but I need breathing room. There was a Fiat dealership down the road, sat in a 500C... THAT I could see myself driving on a regular basis.

#2, If I had been more ambitious earlier today, I may have considered heading out to take a look at this http://www.rptsales.com/auto/used-2...809-fl/6709916/ But that's an hour+ drive each way.

#5, Ah okay. Just a suggestion. :P

Seriously, I'm trying to find cars in your area that I think you'll like. Truthfully, as much as I love the 500, the reliability scares me. The fact that FCA is focusing their efforts on Ram and not fixing quality issues with current Fiats doesn't help matters.

What are your thoughts on the Eos?

#6, To be perfectly fair, due to the cramped nature of my garage (the bike shares space with the car), I need a small car... the new Renault Twingo-based smart interests me... the Cabrio is coming out next year.

...but, yeah, the questionable reliability regarding Fiats does scare me a bit...

Why can't the Japanese manufacturers make an economy car convertible again? I'd snap up a modern-day Paseo convertible in a heartbeat.

Hmmm... would the VW Eos be a possibility... it's a bit bigger and heavier than I was looking for... and they ain't cheap...

... and that black Abarth 500C won't leave my head...

#12, Eos aren't terrible. DSG is a nightmare. I looked for cars in FL for you.. just out of curiosity and...

#13, *chokes* Holy crap... I forgot about the 1 series... Hmmm...

Those two Eos I had looked at before... the silver one has a worrying gap on the rear decklid cover...

#14, My next door neighbor has a 128i convertible she bought used. It seems to be an okay car for her, but she only drives it part time. Her other daily is a 2nd-gen Acura MDX.

if you're about as tall as I, knowng that you cant fit in a miata and the sky, im pretty sure you wont fit in a Fiat either. the seat doesnt go far enough back, your legs are in constant fetal position in the Fiat. I've driving them twice and it was nothing but an uncomfortable experience for me. if only the rails went a few notches futher.
