Summer’s approaching, and there’s no better time to think about switching to a convertible. If you want the feeling of the wind in your hair and the sun on your face this summer, there are a few steps to take before deciding which convertible is for you.

Decide what you want to do with your convertible car and how often you want to use it. Will you be parking it in a garage or on the street? Is this a car for every day, or something you’ll be using only at weekends?

Once you’ve taken those decisions, you’ll know what sort of mileage you need from it, and whether you need a hard or soft-top convertible. For most people in the UK who want to use their cars all year and in all weathers, a hard-top is a good choice. Hard-tops also provide good security when parking on the street.

For those who want to only use their convertible occasionally and who garage it, a soft-top may be the most convenient choice for roof opening and closing in seconds on day trips and afternoon drives in the country.

If fuel economy is important to you, try a diesel convertible. The BMW 320d M Sport gives you 62 miles per gallon, or the powerful BMW 325d Sport Highline which gives you 57 miles per gallon.

If mileage and other practical subjects are less of a concern, you’re looking for a dream car – that once in a lifetime purchase you’ll love.

Few cars can beat the raw power of the stylish Porsche 911 Carrera series – and we have a rare Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Tiptronic S among our cars for sale in Warrington.

For those who love a car which gives them a dream driving experience, with great handling on the road, we also have a Mazda MX-5 I Roadster Sport Tech.
