On the plus side though it's still nicer than it's rivals. I can also confirm the S5 Cabrio has the new 3.0 TFSi (its mentioned in the official press details!). Here's more pics of A5/S5 Cabrio.
I'd have to agree with you there. I'd definitely opt for an S5 cab over an e93.

To me a car isn't a Cabro unless it have a soft top roof, all others are a compromise too far. They metal folding roof adds too much weight both overall and up top.

The more I look at this car, the more I think the lack of roof just puts more emphasis on how extremely LOOONG this car actually is. It felt like the Titanic when I saw it on the road.

You could feel it by looking at it?

Glad they kept cloth top...If I had to buy a sun soaker it would be this car! E92 hardtops look pretty heavy...idk though and the lines don't complement it as a convertible. Hardtops should be left to smaller cars, miata, SLK, new Z4...
