Having just gotten rid of a Saab 93 convertible and gone back to a saloon this week, I did enjoy being out with the roof down when it was dry, but as soon as it was below 15c it got too cold. It is nice to have the roof down, but you've gotta be comfortable as well.
Biggest problem I found was keeping the car warm in the winter. Would take ages to heat up and then if you stopped and turned off the engine would get like an ice box within 5 mins.
Mrs Coops reckons I was having an early mid-life crisis when I got the convertible.

Now I've got a focus with dodgy air con, they did nowt but moan about how hot my car is on warm days now!
My kids loved the roof down as long as I was doing less than 50 mph. Above that it would be 'DDDDAAAADDDD, put the roof up'
