My girlfriend is buying a Volkswagen New Beetle sometime in the next few weeks. She's loved the new beetles since she was a kid, and she's finally in a position to afford one. The only nagging question is - does she go with the convertible or not? I told her that if she was going to buy an entirely impractical car with no backseat or trunk, she might as well go all the way and get one without a roof, too. She agrees, but the worry is about the winter. She's in law school in Boston, so low temperatures and wintry precipitation is definitely an issue. I was wondering if anyone around here has any experience with the VW Beetle convertibles. Do they seal out the elements adequately? Thanks.
