Anyway, I'm really a coupe guy, unless my next car has a carbon tub, then bring on the topless once more.
Yeah. Some cars that were made as soft tops look...ok..., but so many convertibles are just coupes with the top chopped off. The old 350z convertibles were just hideous.

I actually think the E88s are ok looking in the grand scheme, just because the top of the car was so bubbly to begin with that the top looks a bit more normal.
