Firstly I knowthis probably should be posted in the classic section, have done this with a few views but no comments.
I am calling on all those that feel the way I do about these cars, I have come across one which on the surface seems clean,original with 92k on clock on an R plate. I have in the past owned a 2.2 gt coupe I know different car but people will know the passion. Call it mid-life crisis,but I would love to own a convertible before I part this earth. I have read a few reviews on what to look for, and most rave about them (being German built I guess!). It is up for £1795, not sure if this is about right or not but I would say yes for this example.
I was holding out for one up until Nov 2012 when I got impatient and bought an A3 1999 which is great! but I am now split,I am guessing the difference between 1.6A3 and the 1.8Cabriolet is not that much,I do about 100 miles a week, car tax same and insurance looking promising!.
I have always let my head rule my heart! but I am seriously thinking about going for it! what do people or hopefully other owners think?
