Each time a buy an Exige (except the s1) I’ve taken the roof and loved it for a summer evening, but after that I’ve hated it. I’ve always liked he idea more reality. Just adding it for balance but I’ve never got the point of spending on a soft top compared to taking the roof off once or twice a year

Soft top is a must for me.  If the sun is out, the roof is off.

Roof  was off for the whole of an alps trip and it was epic.  I’m probably  biased though as love open type cars, such as Atom, XBOW, caterhams etc.  Makes you feel alive :)

Previously owned :Exige 380,  Exige 350,  Evora 400,  Exige V6S,  Esprit GT3,  2-11 SC,  Evora S,  Elite 501

Thing is with the soft top you can quickly and easily take it off, put it on, and store it easily behind the seats. Quick and simple.

However, with the hardtop it is more of a ballache and you cannot easily store it when off the car and driving. So I actually get why people would want both - soft top for the summer, hardtop for the winter.

I enjoy driving my VX with the roof off - however, the sun can be a pain as it blinds you when just above the windscreen bar.  the sun can be a pain as if you are a baldy coot like me you NEED a hat on or SPF150 otherwise you will burn your bonce and it will look like a donkeys appendage. Having said that, feeling the wind, hearing the noise, feeling the heat of the sun on your legs, arms, shoulders etc. - all bloody good.  horses for courses really.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Horses for courses like you said, it’s nice to have the option like you said.

Personally open top makes more sense on cold clear mornings in the winter. Wife’s always had convertibles, if I’m driving first thing I do is put the lid up...
