Why aren't YOU getting a convertible?

So for those of you who are getting your coupe soon (or sometime this year), what made you decide to get the coupe, and not wait for the convertible?

Do you not like convertibles? Is the wait too long for you? Or are you getting both?

For me, it's because I can't use the convertible much where I live. And I don't like the look of it when it's closed.

Until now, I just found one picture of a closed convertible.
Does anybody have some?

Thanks

well for one I have to wait anyway but I prefer the coupe never liked the cloth tops. If it were a hard top convertible like the G6 then I would definately get convertible. But Im not complaining. I just prefer the coupe

Personally it's because I hate convertibles as they will eventually leak plus I would never use it so why pay thousands extra for something you will never use?

Yes, that would be the Spike point of view, and a good one at that.

I live in Oregon, with an average rainfall of 41.5" per year.... the convertible would be a stupid choice. Now if I lived in Cali, AZ or somewhere warm, different story. People who live here and have convertibles get to enjoy them about 3 days a year.
