Here I go again, with new thoughts...

I am pretty much sure I'll take a V6, as I don't need more horse power: 305hp is plenty enough for me, plus the insurance and MPG are better on the V6.

I know also the options I'll be looking for.

Where I still hesitate is between Coupe and Convertible..., and the 5000$ difference, here are my thoughts:

- Convertible is nice yes, but has the main and unique car is it still the best choice?
- Insurance is higher on a Convertible.
- With the extra 5000$ on the Convertible, I can add some more options on the Coupe, like the Performance Package (only available on the Coupe) and still get the Coupe less expensive than the Convertible...
- Having a Coupe, I can still rent a convertible if I wanna make a road trip on a convertible...
-The Coupe is safer than the Convertible.

Any thoughts on that?
Guess I will decide when I'll test drive both... Still the Convertible will be more expensive with less options...
