Small 4 seat cabrio? - Happy Blue!
A mate has offered to lend me his MINI cabio for a few days, as his back hurts, so he is driving his Mondeo. I was thinking...I fancy a small, cheap four seat convertible.

Apart from a 2CV and an old Beetle or even an old Golf cabrio, what else (please no Escorts or Astras, I would prefer some style and less car)?

howabout a 205 CTi perhaps?

Peugeot 206 CC: my mate's got one and it's alright.

I think calling the 206CC a four seater is a joke, even a no leg'd midget would find it tight for leg room in the back.

Plus i really cannot see espada driving one - he's no way near camp enough!

I saw an immacualte 205 Cabriolet yesterday, 'J' reg in green metallic and light coloured leather interior. Obviously a summer car as it was so perfect.

That was a Roland Garros limited edition - I had a look at one several years ago, but it was full of water. 205 hoods often need replacing by the age they are now. I did take 4 adults in mine, but the rear seat is pretty windswept with the roof down!

I thank you! and too costly..

M-i-L has one of the last Golf Cabrios - it's a nice car but not sure I could recommend it. Very drab inside and has a lot of scuttle shake when you drive it.

If you like driving enthusiastically, I reckon you'd be a lot better off with a two seater along the lines of a MX5 rather than a chopped compact.

That Astra Twin top looks pretty nifty.

Rover 200 Cab is quite nice, for its day. Make sure it's the 216 model.

Thats becuase it's actually a Mk3 Golf Cabrio with a Mk4 front end - even the interior is Mk3 Golf.

A fine example of how deluded people will buy anything with the right badge on it, £18,000 for a 115bhp Mk3 Golf... madness.

Hmmmm

You're not deluded if you choose to buy something you want, have looked at the alternatives, can afford it and enjoy your purchase. Informed, not deluded.

Wouldn't have been my choice, but then it wasn't my choice

There is nothing informed about purchasing a Mk3 Golf for £18,000 in 2004.
Small 4 seat cabrio? - Citroënian {P}
Who said anything about 2004?

It was the last year in which you could walk into a VW Showroom and splash £18,000 on a Mk3 Golf.

A lady friend of mine had so called Mk4 Golf cabrio. Total dog, more time in dealership than with her over about 6 mths - luckily she is a partner at a large solicitors so had no trouble rejecting it and getting a full refund which she put towards Mitsubishi 4wd.

Total dog,

Nearly misread that ! Bit of a shift from a softtop into an SUV>

Total dog...
...hope you don´t talk about all your lady friends like that behind their backs, Lud.

If anyone fancies a 205 Roland Garros convertible i know where there is one going very cheap, it does need a few bits and bobs doing but it would still be a cheap car.

Its even had a new hood fitted fairly recently.

I'm almost tempted, Blue - where is it?

A few more 205 rag tops that may interest people.
Small 4 seat cabrio? - Thommo
IF you can find one, a Mk1 Toyota Celica ragtop is big style for relatively little dosh...

The MKII more common in all senses of the word.
