My wife has wanted a convertible for years so I wait until we moved from California to Iowa to get her one. Go figure. Actually, I drive it as a daily driver and except for a couple of big snowstorms it has served me well. My wife does get to drive it occasionally and we cannot wait for warm weather. My 16 year old daughter wants to learn how to drive a manual tranny so there will be some bonding (and praying) going on. Most fun car I have ever owned bar none! I have already gotten sideways on some corners.
Manual trans, great cornering, good gas mileage, glass rear window, tight sealing convertible top, heater warms up really fast.
Taller gearing for highway cruising. I am not going to comment on the cupholders as I seldom drink anything in the car.
