ST was the right choice. I absolutely love mine. It's loud, it's a pain in the ass, you need to watch out for the weather, you need to make sure everything is buttoned down or it flys out....but the experience of it all - with a little wind and lots of sunshine is just amazing. If you like and use boats, its the same exact thing except you might not have to wash down the Rover after a spin :D

And. no offense to Kevin, but talking on a cell while driving a 90 at highways speeds might not be the best idea anyway. I feel like I can barely take a drink or change a setting on the radio.

None taken

Unfortunately my life is spent on the cell phone pretty much all day most days. Just the nature of the beast. Since the D90 isn't my daily driver it isn't that much of a problem - which is why I went with a ST this time around. If I didn't have the Range Rover a ST wouldn't have been an option. But some days it's nice outside...I don't need to worry about carrying any passengers...and I'd rather just drive the 90 - it's those days I wish it were just a bit more quiet. My D90 is stock so it has fine road manners...and the majority of my driving is done between 35 and 60 miles per hour. Rarely is there an occasion to drive over 60 around here. Plenty do it - but I'm a put put type...get there when I get there. My '92 Rangie though with an SG Stage III suspension is the opposite. It's pretty much white knuckles no changing the radio station, no food, drinks or cell phone allowed - and no swerving - if you pull out in front of me you're getting an SG bumper up the butt.

After making my post I started searching threads and saw that there are some solutions to the problems (noise shields/mats, felt for the rattling windows, etc.) I took the door tops off and will run the bimini for a while and probably go ahead and throw the fiberglass hard top on for the winter (or lack thereof here) - I'll get used to it being more quiet for a while and then when the weather cooperates for another lovely 4 or 5 days of good Houston weather I'll go back topless and it'll be worth it.

I think a Badger is in my near future as well...as my Bestop was a $200 addition last year since I didn't have any soft top other than the bimini...it is...to say the least...a $200 Bestop

Actually there is a way to hear and talk on a cell in a ST. I have one of those racing style headsets that work with cell phones that I'll use or a plantronics headset that has a wind blocking mic.

I'll have to check on that. Typically the problem is them hearing me...not the other way around.
