You may want to consider a European Delivery for your next BMW.

Anyhow, when you are one of these roads with this sign:

And you see this sign:

Then it's as fast as you can safely travel for the road and traffic conditions.

There are recommended speeds, and there are limits that manufacturers place on their vehicles:

From Wikipedia:

The German autobahns form the nationally coordinated motorway system in Germany. In German, they are officially called Bundesautobahn (plural Bundesautobahnen, abbreviated 'BAB'), which translates to "federal expressways". German autobahns have no general speed limit, but the advisory speed limit (Richtgeschwindigkeit) is 130 kilometres per hour (81 mph).

From Wikipedia:
Some cars with very powerful engines can reach speeds of well over 300 km/h (190 mph). Most large car manufacturers, especially the German ones, follow a gentlemen's agreement by electronically limiting the top speeds of their cars with the exception of some top of the range models or engines to 250 km/h (155 mph). These limiters can be deactivated, so speeds up to 300 km/h (190 mph) might arise on the German autobahn, but due to other traffic, such speeds are generally not attainable. Most unlimited sections of the autobahn are located outside densely populated areas.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.
