If I lived in Seattle or anywhere where winter precipitation is the rule rather than the exception, I would definitely opt for the hard top. Or else put the $2k toward a good winter beater...
at some point. I would not be w/o a hardtop...in my, very, humble opinion I would go for the hardtop b4 the heated seats. I am a fellow PNWestr and have gone thru a winter with a hardtop, and one without...I prefer to remember the one with. I know the rest of the people here have been in the rain...but you, and I, know what "real" rain is! My car is a daily driver, going on 80,000 miles, and has seen some narly weather, but with the htop on, I'm cozy and warm, come heck or high water. BTW the car has an awsome profile with the top on to boot.
