Drop tops drop price trend

Drop tops drop price trend

Convertible prices are bucking the trend and are remaining low, despite the time of year. Every summer, drop top prices rise as people want to take advantage of the good weather. Convertible prices are usually 20 per cent higher in the summer months than the winter ones. However, as the bad weather has continued as late as June this year, convertible prices have remained steady. Martin from MX5 City told CCW that “people have really short memories and come to us as soon as the sun comes out. We usually have to beat them off with a stick, but the bad weather at the start of the summer did affect it.”

If the allure of a convertible is too hard to resist, why not pick up a bargain today before the good weather (hopefully) comes out to play, and pushes the prices back up to the usual higher rate experienced at this time of year. Some great examples can be had for less than £5,000, right now.
