.....So buy the vert and enjoy it while you live in California. Later in life when you are transferred to Missouri, which has summers like the inside of a Swedish sauna and winters to cold to keep the top down, you can replace it with a new coupe (with a glass roof) and see how the other half lives.
I DO live in Missouri and still went for the convertible. Anytime the weather is above 65, below 95, and not raining, the top is down. You can use it a surprising amount of the year with the top down.
2011 V6 Convertible, Premium, Red Candy, White side stripes, Pony badges on fenders, auto headlights, lower fogs coming soon.
