Its just that in relation to the design as a whole the windscreen and windows are just too tall. And rounded. There, I've said it. As ever its a personal opinion, just trying to gauge other people's view on this to see if its just me.
    I agree, and many I have spoken to do but you get used to it over time and now I see it as a quirky design feature that identifies it amongst the Cabrios, Hunters and Roadster.

    Again a personal view here,
    I think that the Berli looks too big and long for this style of car. I understand that it has to be for a 2+2 and it’s just a personal view.
    I agree that everyone have their own preferences.

    Actually, I’ve been toying with the idea of selling my Alfa and getting a good Berli, but it would have to be a very good one as I need an occasional daily driver.

    I think the problem with the Berly is the cockpit should be a bit wider this in turn would make the windscreen wider and make it look a little more in proportion and also narrow the slabs of wings either side. In my opinion the side profile of the wings are good nice curve unlike the roadsters where it looks very flat around the door area.
    Each model has its quirks but I like the roadsters and Berly for them.
