Question Coupe Regret?

Do own coupe owners regret not buying the Spider or vice versa?

Nope. As much as I enjoy an open top car, and tend to prefer targa style designs over full convertibles styling-wise, the Coupe is just so damned pretty. I wouldn’t mind having a Spider too, but not in the place of the Coupe.

Coupe would save a few buck and be one less issue to worry about (water ingress etc). I drove the Spider and dealer did not take the top off, so need to revisit the open top experience.

Former GTV6 Owner. Currently drive 2012 Aston Martin Rapide and looking to buy a used 4C at some point as 2nd car.

I much prefer the coupe, it's such a great shape, here in Britain it's more practical and security wise is better.

I wasn't interested at all in the spider when I was looking to buy. I love the look of my 2015 Rosso Alfa coupe.

Nope! I like the look of the coupe much better, especially since you can get the carbon roof option. Plus, as others have said, more secure, less worries about water getting in the cabin, etc.

Spyder looks better in all angles. Personal preference. Prefer Natural Blondes over others.

Tough call to be honest... When I bought in 2015, the spiders were just coming out and were demanding something like $15-20k premium. I also think that the Coupe is better looking. So I got the Coupe, and I STILL love it! The only reason why I might consider a Spider is that it is MUCH easier to get in an out of when on track (i have psuedo-bucket seats that are fixed to the tub).
