It's 30 years since I had my 4/4 2 seater. My wife used it as her daily car and we had a lot of fun in it.

I'm now feeling the urge for another but keep looking at 4 seaters. I don't need 4 seats but just think they look better than the 2 seater.

Are there any reason not to go for a 4 seater?

Not a fan personally. I think the additional seats ruin the lines and balance of what is otherwise a perfect and timeless design.
This was how I used to feel but as the years have gone by, that ugliness has grown on me.

I think the reason I hated them was because 2 seats is what my brain associates with "normal".

But now, I've been looking at the 4 seater so much that they look normal to me. Better in fact!

I wonder if the longer hood is more of a faff to use and if the sidescreens at the back flap about?

I certainly love the idea of the extra space for luggage for touring and tip runs.

I look at the picture above and think it looks fantastic.

Thanks for resurecting this. I've still not got one yet and I can't recall why I asked the question but it was probably because I was wondering if there's a divide in those who prefer the look of the 4 seater. The consensus seems to be that most will put up with them rather than choose them.

I like estates over saloons/hatchbacks too. In fact if there's an ugly version of a car, I usually prefer that one.
