Friend bought a new car 6ish months ago, it is her pride and joy. Think constant updates, lots of photos on facebook etc.

Today we were saying what a nice day it was ... clear skies, sun shining - but it was obviously still freezing.

Friend says "yes it was so nice I've been driving around with the roof down"


See if I had a that sort of car I would only put the roof down when it was actually hot.

I know she has probably been dying to do this .... but regardless of who it was - if I saw someone driving with their roof down in February I'd be thinking numpty what a complete show off grin

You need a personalised plate Mitchy. wink

it came with a brilliant plate actually!

I was so pleased, was trading down (from a proper convertible) and just bought it without looking, I didn't know it had a retractable roof

Although I do think that anyone who drives with the lid off in cold weather is a show off, YANBU.

Lovers you can ride shotgun in the repression-mobile with OP.

who on earth is it showing off to? I trundle up and down a farm track. The horses? The one eyed farmhand? A barn owl? A few muntjacs?

Op you need to chill out! For Christ sake, it seems VERY much that you've asked a question you clearly didn't want an answer to.

Are you unreasonable to think your friend looks silly driving her convertible the the top down? Yes you are! It's her business!

If LA isn't the land of show offs I'd like to see a place that fits the bill more.

You ARE making a choice to work in LA because the career or a job IS a choice?

If you go around in real life flaming people down, whose opinion you actually asked for I am actually flabbergasted you have any friends at all.

I used to have a lovely convertible pre-dc... It was lovely to drive with the top down, even on cold days, as long as it wasn't raining. The seat warmers & heating were incredibly effective.

If? she was in Essex , wearing a micro mini, driving a XR3I, with killer heels (her, not car) a crop-top and Wham"s greatest hits was blasting out the soooooperb sound system, i envy her ! cos thats what every girl should , at one point , be able to do, and yes , low life that i am undoubtably am ,i wish i had all that to reflect on, in my dottage !(like now),oh yes, dyed blond hair >essential and very long false nails....slopes off to play "milk and alcohol"....

Love driving my classic convertible on days like this alias, it's not been MOT'd yet, else I would of been out like a shot.

There is nothing better than having the chill on your head and the warm heating blasting around your legs, it's lovely fresh crisp air it just makes you feel alive!

I would be like your friend and update people / friends about my new car if it was something I was excited about as I would think as friends they would also be excited with me - Not poo poo my excitement with comments like "I could afford one, but I choose not too"

Some friend...
