Convertibles

Jil, if you're reading this...

Have you test-driven the new Toyota Solara convertible yet?  I
understand the 2004 version is much improved over the previous
model.

If you had roughly $30,000 (U.S.) to spend on an open-air car,
totally unnecessary except to assauge middle-age convertible lust,
what would you do:

1) Buy new Toyota Solara
2) Buy used SAAB 9-3 or Volvo c70
3) Wait for new Volvo convertible to come out next year,
 save your capital and lease a new SAAB or Volvo, enjoy it for three
years and say bye-bye after spending $25,000 or so, with no car at
the end to show for it but hopefully 3 years worth of fun memories.

I'm not much of a fan of leasing in general, but I wonder if it
might make sense in this case.  I don't think SAABs have exactly a
pristine reputation for reliability, so don't know how long I'd want
to own one anyway, but they sure are fun to drive.
