Re: What Convertible would you rather have (vw86gti)

Z4. German, reasonably quick, correct amount of pots, presumably well built. Not a Honda.
Looks are questionable, but I don't mind 'em.

BMW. Exterior beh. Gorgeous and well laid out interior. Straight 6. Need some comfort as I'm not always blasting around.

TT. Is an Audi and looks much better than the other two. Has also much more low-end torque.

Audi TT convertible, 3.2 V6 quattro, tiptronic, full leather package.
Honda second by 1/10th of a second. A hell of driving fun.
No Bimmer, ever. Rather a Daewoo.

S2000. Honda quality/reliability, great gearbox, fun high revving engine...and it is cheap compared to the others.

You think it would have more low end torque than the Z4? I highly doubt that. Regardless, the TT would be spanked by the others in an acceleration contest.

Yeowch. Tough choice and good poll... I'm gonna have to say S2000. But if the TT was a coupe, I'd be all over that. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: What Convertible would you rather have (WOB GMAN)

I mentionned this in another thread, but in this month issue of Car and Driver, the Honda S2000 has won over the TT, Z4 3.0:, Boxster and 350Z Touring. The Honda is the only one to get a 10/10 for fun-to-drive. Also Honda will increase the displacement of its engine to 2.2L with a lower redline. C&D said that the TT is Audi's answer to Ford T-Bird.
I would take the Z4.

I have to say Z4. I've grown to like the styling and they help to keep me employed

As for the S2000 I have the same engine in my motorcycle

Re: What Convertible would you rather have (WOB GMAN)

Tough choices. I already own a BMW sorta-convertible. I also own a quattro. Seeing as how I know and already love the two marques, my vote would still go to the S2000.
I drove a co-worker's S2000 and I was impressed. Hondas really don't do much for me, but this was a ton of fun. If I were in the market for roadster, my $$$ would go to the S2000.

I like the TT. I love the interior, but IMO the exterior is too rounded and has too many curves.

Too bad the Corvette isn't on your list. I guess I'd pick the S2000 from that list but none are really appealing to me.

Re: What Convertible would you rather have (sar4497)

Having driven all three, I would say the Z4. The TT had too much lag, was too heavy and it feels like you are sitting in a bathtub. The S2K is a wonderful machine, but too raw for my tastes and my shoulders didn't fit into it. I drove a Z4 2.5 and fell in love (the 3.0 is out of my price range). Smooth motor with just the right mix of sport and luxury. Not crazy about the catfish-like front end, but I think the rest of the car looks great! I WILL have one in my garage come this November!

Re: What Convertible would you rather have (Y2kSI)

Well, I own an S2000 so that was my choice. Of course, the Z4 wasn't out yet when I bought it.
If I were to get another roadster, I'd probably wait for the M-powered Z4 to make its debut. Or maybe an S2200, but I generally like to mix it up when I get a new car.
I actually saw a Z4 in red and I have to say it looked awesome.

Re: (The Chemist)

I never thought that I'd say this about a Honda but I am really becoming a fan of this car. The main factor is the money. One of these for $32,000 or a Boxster at close to $55,000. I love the Boxster but I'd like to have a roadster and because I just bought a house I am going to have to 'settle' on an S2000 when the time comes to buy a new car in February.

Re: (The Chemist)

TT if I had to chose from the poll. But, I'd rather have the A4 Cabriolet http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
