Best Features

Heated Seats; top-down (of course); decent back seat and trunk for convertible; Quick elect top; v good seal around top; snow and cold weather do not affect occupants (we live in Cleveland); 7 layer top.

Worst Features

cupholder (I removed the cig holder for more room); reliability and/or longer warranty. The top gets lots of black marks on the back seat when stored there, however.
