convertible is not viable in india with dust, stones, paans & spits flying around with all kinds of beggars and pickpockets loitering the streets.

so its not a feasible product.

Its called a convertible because it converts from an open roof to a closed roof. So, when you see paan and spit flying around, then you pull the roof up.

When the time is right, you open it and enjoy the wind in your hair. Its that simple. Therefore, I think convertibles are v much feasible.

Hehehe...good one! I guess then,for the most part, the roof's gonna be pulled up all the way. You never know when a State transport bus passes by,and out comes the red-stream from a generous mouth!

Have any of you ridden bikes? What about the millions of Indians riding 2-wheelers? Do they come home everyday with paan and spit.

Lets be realistic, i am never going to keep the roof up in thick traffic on a summer afternoon, but I know of plenty of scenic moonlit drives where I would like to enjoy the wind in my hair.
