Default How do you find soft top mini ownership? - 21st June 2016, 09:45 PM

Hi all,
I am looking to change my current cooper d for a convertible in the not too distant future.
What would you guys recommend as must haves on a soft top, ie front heated seats?
How do you find it in all weathers?
Is it as fun as it looks?
Any draw backs?
Thank you.
Miff

Definitely leather seats all round. They will get wet and leather can be wiped dry.

Heated seats, not essential. I find the heater works better. It's not your back that gets cold!

Wind deflector.

Lots of interior chrome.

No different from a normal car. If you mean do they leak? - No.

Much more. It's like driving your own roller coaster car.

More limited view out the back. Not so much boot space. Always turns heads when driving through town.

I wouldn't go back to a 'non-convertible' now. Too boring!


Extensive mods to my Hyper Blue Cooper S Convertible:
Magic Tree air freshener; Road map moved from back of driver's seat to glove box; FUN plates; SmartTOP roof control; Chrome mirrors; Chrome bonnet scoop; Chrome boot handle and hinges; Chrome spotlights; Chrome air vents; Chrome door buttons; Chrome number plate surrounds; Chrome instruments and switches; Chrome gear knob and handbrake grip; Chrome pen in glove box; Chrome dust caps on front wheels (not sure about the back wheels - don't want to overdo it)
to dechroming. Keep it Chrome and Classy

Heated seats are the best thing in the world! Don't listen to him - they are absolutely essential. Haha.

Heated seats - depending on your gender, either guaranteed thrush or guaranteed low sperm count

Don't get chromeline interior - the sunshine from above can really dazzle off it awkwardly.


All 4 one...

I can live with the low sperm count - got a GP and building a track car - no room for horrible little kids in either haha
