    For a fact, every car part is formed into a Autobot body. Not one piece of car left behind. But I will never understand where the seats of the car go.

    As we know, when Sideswipe made his first appearance in the second movie, he was a full Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, roof and all and he transformed perfectly.

    However, he his now a convertable Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, meaning no roof and yet he still transforms the same as the second movie mold. What do you think happened to his roof? Was the roof an important part of his body or was that probably an umimportant part of his body, like his Autobot appendix, Tonsils or one of his kidneys that he sacrifed?:lol 

    I mean Ratchet kept the same vehicle, just a new paint job. And Bumblebee is the same Camero, only with a new car tail.

    In any case I'll never understand how real life car forms into a robot body.

    One Night Optimus was drunk and thought Sideswipe was a Decepticon. Fortunatley he only ripped off his roof.

    Simply put... we don't know what happened to Sideswipe's roof. We can make guesses, but just like the questions "Where does Optimus Prime's trailer go" and "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop," the world will never know.

    :lolol

    Optimus, drunk as hell: "Then I went up to her, and totally-"
    *Sideswipe enters the room*: "Hai, guise!"
    Optimus: "Decepticon! Give me your roof!"

    Well Bumblebee was a 2006 Camaro Concept in TF1, and in TF2 he turned into a 2010 Camaro SS. They are almost identical but they are in different in slight ways. The 2010 is a teeny bit smaller. So they just upgrade I guess

    Due the lack of "roof", he simply had to expand the metal on the rest of his body to replace it, enlarging other pieces to cover the "hole" left by the roof.

    Simple.

    Reconfigured himself as a convertible due to damage sustained in a fight, I reckon. Although this explanation...

    ... is far lulzier. :lolol

    Visual change for the big screen. Change in fiction? Probably nothing other than a change of "clothes."

    Regardless, it's cool how ILM pulled it off throughout the scenes he's in. Besides, maybe it's his little way of being a rebel still, driving throughout the city with no hologram!

    I just now have realized that the convertible driving through the city without a driver looked incredible! I saw Sideswipe and just thought, that without a roof he is still better!

    Well, seriously speaking, if Sideswipe has a different alt mode in DOTM is because he trans-scanned a different vehicle than the one he did when he first came to Earth.

    The twins do it at the beginning of ROTF, so, it's no wonder Sideswipe did the same thing at some point.

    If he trans-scanned the new model, then his system must have detected the car had no roof, so I guess his body simply rearranged itself so it wouldnt need this piece. Guess his molecules were reabsorbed into his body, thats supoosedly what cybertronians do, every cell in them is a machine unto itself, so, an unneeded part of the old alt mode is probably simply reabsorbed.

    Less parts, less kibble, so basically thats what happened, i guess.
