I've never had a convertible, and the folding hardtop is far more preferable to me than a cloth top. The car drives like nothing else I've had before. It just feels so solid and planted to the road, and the ride quality (particularly in the Comfort setting) is just phenomenal. Many years of refined German engineering I suppose. Putting it in the Sport or Sport+ modes really wakes it up, and the 362 hp 3 liter V6 twin turbo and 9 speed automatic are a really strong combination when pushed. The interior is really comfortable and extremely well finished. It has massaging seats (turned off), side bolsters that will push you opposite of the cornering force (turned off), radar based cruise control (cannot be turned off to operate as "conventional" cruise control) and self-steering (turned off), heated and cooled seats, air vents in the headrests, and a variety of high tech safety features including pop-up roll bars should it sense an impending rollover. Just watching the Rube Goldberg designed folding roof is worth the price of admission.
It was a Certified Pre-Owned with just shy of 12k miles.
