At the risk of sounding stupid, but its always puzzled me, why is the MK4 cabriolet just a MK3 with a MK4 front end? Did VW just get lazy? Its a really horrible mess, smooth MK4 front end with an MK3 angular rear, Mk3 Dash with Mk4 bits. [B)]

Sorry if this offends any cabriolet owners, but I saw one close up today and just had to understand why this thing ever exsisted!

Its just something VW have been doing for years, they did the same thing with the Mk1 cab, they never released the Mk2 as a cab so just kept producing the Mk1 cab up untill the release of the Mk3. Its all cost cutting!

The mk4 cab is a nice car if you want to get your mk3 looking like a mk4 and have a wrecked cabriolet as a donor!

[:eek:)]I've got the estate, only because I got fed up with the dog chewing the leather in my V6 though!

Hmmm, the wife used to have a mk3 cabrio too, nice looking car but gutless and not too stable either [:O]

Heeeyyy!!! My sister has a mk4 cab! Yeah it does have some traces of the mk3 interior which isnt a bad thing, but in the summer nothing beats it! Pimpin style G-Ride plus my sis does have some antera rims & remus exhaust!

I admit i do like to borrow it in summer!
