Audi A3 Cabriolet (8P)

Audi A3 convertibleThelma and Louise?

5 Pros

  1. The Audi A3 Cabriolet is a small convertible with decent boot space. Think comfortable high heel – you will wonder why you ever compromised
  2. Pretty fun to drive – although more tickle fun than heroin fun
  3. Interior space is pretty good as well (and high quality)
  4. Resale values tend to hold up strongly for this type of car
  5. Audi badge (and German built)

5 Cons

  1. Old and about to be replaced – nothing will ruin your day more than seeing your neighbour bring home the new version in six months time
  2. Not well equipped and expensive – rear parking sensors cost almost $5K
  3. Although this is pretty gender neutral, small four seater convertibles are still very feminine (the 1 Series Convertible is probably the best for men in this class)
  4. Poor fuel efficiency
  5. S-tronic gearbox has a reputation for being quite jerky

Concluding personality type: Expensive umbrella: Practical, but really only useful half the year
