Exactly, if you want a cheap power top then you're waiting for the G6, but that's still more expensive then the Solstice (and definetely not a a sports car). Otherwise you are buying a much more expensive cor to get full power top.Pammysoltice said:Okay I'm not sure I like this top. It kind of looks cheeseyyyyyy. I'm also still not over the fact that the top is not going to be a power top. I just can't see myself getting out of the car to put the top down. The rest of the car looks so cool, then you have this manual top. I'm sorry but it just seems cheap. I guess if it's only going to be $20,000 you really can't ask for much.
I have to agree with MCEB here. It really seems people are becoming way overcritical about the roof. It seems a lot of people are having exotic fantasies about what they're expecting/wanting from pretty much the cheapest back to basics roadster. For the money I'll be spending if I buy a Solstice or a Sky I'm not expecting Porsche levels of amenities. The two main cars in the Solstice class are the MR2 and Miata, and as far as I know both have manual folding roofs. Both cost realistically $5000 more once you add some of the options of what you'll get base on the Solstice more then likely.mceb said:Other than the wrinkles I'm good with the overall shape of the top. As far as manual top goes, I'll deal with the 30 seconds it takes to put it up or down.
