Neither of the above?... Toyota Yaris?...rotflmao... having fine taste in automobiles doesn't mean you're compensating for something, just like driving a Toyota Yaris doesn't necessarily mean you wear oversize shoes, overalls, and a big red nose.

Yaris!!! HaHaHa. Awesome. This can be used as a movie idea or probably as Yaris commercial.

Sorry, but only a woman could claim that a man is "compensating" for something dependent on the car he buys.
Does that mean that no women in history have ever bought BMW/Audi/Mercedes? And if they have, are they just such intrinsically better people that they are not also trying to compensate for something?

Anyone who buys a convertible car be it a Golf or a Ferrari, look in a shop window at yourself...Yup, you look like you are sat in a babies pram. Utterly hilarious especially when there's four of you sat in it. Classically funny, yet they think they look 'cool'
Farleys rusks anyone?

The only "rush" you can get from a convertible is the wind in your face unless it is a purpose-built car like the Miata.
All others, including Ferrari and Porsche, are compromises in weight, speed, rigidity, and often handling as well.

I was going to add a comment - but it's pointless - but I will anyway.
If you've ever owned or driven a Merc, you know what I mean, and after 30 odd years of various cars I finally got a 430 CLK convertible (USA engine sizes eh!) - there is no comparison - hood down, this is the only way to get to and from work - BMW's may be close - Porsche as well - but I know mine is the only CLK convertible in the office car park.
As to comparing it with Toyotas etc - get real - my next one is going to be an AMG convertible.
Long and short - if you can afford it, get it and you'll enjoy it. If you can't - there's always a BMW or Toyota looking for an owner.

"if you can afford it, get it and you'll enjoy it. If you can't - there's always a BMW"
Fairly ridiculous comment seeing as list prices of BMW's and Merc's are very similar.

Mercedes Cost more chap!! I love BMW's and Own a 330ic coupe, but I still like Mercedes more. Mercedes has been in the motoring game the longest ever. That's all I have 2 say!

Any women who believe they can "measure" a man based on his ride is a total nutjob and should be avoided at all costs.
