Default Anybody have a convertible?

I like how the new IS convertible looks but I'm for info from people that already own one before I make a decision to buy or not..

Anyone here have one? Or know someone that does?

I like the look with the top down and the fact that there is no B pillar. Haven't seen one in person with the top up. For me, I don't like the sun hitting me in the face, so I usually pass on verts.

Welcome to the Club, Johnny!

I did a review of the car. Check it out.

First Impressions: Lexus IS350 Convertible test drive...

Personally, I like it.

Saw one in a showroom last week.

I think they look great (top down).

Hello there, I have one. I love that people feel the need to actually take the time and reply, saying they dont want one or theyll pass....who cares? Its a new member, why not show manners?

Anyways, I had some reservations about the car before I picked it up. It is a little long, and the wheel gap killed me, so i had the car lowered. Even with it lowered, I dont feel as if it handles as well as the sedan, I wanted something different, but I love Lexus products, and I didnt want to lease the same car. Only other option for me was an Audi A5, which I love...but they wanted a kings ransom for it.

Overall, I have loved every minute of this car. There are always going to be small things about cars that people might dislike, but they are trying to market it to billions of people. One day when I win the lotto I will buy my ferrari lol.

If you need anything else let me know, as you can tell there are many members willing to help out.
