Top 10: Used convertibles for £10,000

Despite our mainly inclement weather here in the UK, it seems we can't get enough of convertibles. So even though we may be able to only get the roof down for three days a year without needing a scarf, what a three days it is. Convertibles are all about style and sophistication, but they don't need to cost a king's ransom.

So if you’re looking to buy a drop-top, now couldn’t be a better time to shop before prices rise with demand as we approach summer. We’ve picked out 10 of the coolest convertibles that money can buy for just £10,000.

Honda S2000

The Honda S2000 offers explosive performance from its 2.0-litre 240PS engine and is beautifully crafted too. If you don’t mind a stiff ride, it’s well-equipped and with Honda’s excellent reputation for reliability, when you come to sell it on you won’t have lost much value.

A quick search only revealed half a dozen cars, ranging from 2003 to 2005 models all with less than 60,000 miles on the clock, so while they may not be in abundance, if you’re prepared to be patient you’ll have one of the best two-seater roadsters £10k can buy.

That’s a fantastic list of verts that you come up with in this post! By the way, how do these drop-tops handle the wind noise and buffeting issues? Well, my Cabrio was so bad at tackling these problems that I had to finally mount a wind deflector. Thankfully, the Windblox windblocker is doing a good job of keeping these bogeys at bay even at highway speeds.

Yes, you are right. If it’s a roadster then it must have some or the other tech to take care of the wind buffeting and noise. I have mounted something called TopDown windscreen on my ride and it is keeping my cabin quiet and turbulence-free even at motorway speeds.

Yes, I too have a Windblox wind deflector mounted on my ride, and it has transformed into a noise-free vert.

Yeah, Windblox windscreen is a good draught stop. I too have one affixed on my Cabrio. Now not only the cockpit is noise-free but it keeps it cozy and warm even on winter days by warding off the frigid gust.

Love my S2000 but I have to wear noise cancelling headphones on the motorway!

I reckon this comment thread is entirely dedicated to the topic of wind deflectors. Interesting! I too have experienced an awful lot of wind noise and stuff on my Cabrio but not after a good wind blocking equipment was affixed. Yes, Windblox windblocker is a good deterrent against gust!
