actually alpine, the e93's top's design is not by any measure the same as the e92's. it's actually a pretty large departure. then angle at which the rear window segment joins the roof deviates from the e92 design, and also the flatness of the convertible roof itself varies a significant amount from the e92.
more to the point though:
convertible tops just never look right.
