You will probably drive around with the top down and no radio just listening to the wonderful sounds the car makes.

You'll just have that "windblown" look and get a little more tan! Let us know how you like it!

I just switched from an E90 to an E93. I think the power is not very noticeable, but I think the handling is a big difference.

All worth it, for the tan

I feel in the opposite way, big difference in power but not noticeable in handling

My E93 squeaks a bit in ways E92 M3s I've driven don't, and there is a LITTLE body flex. Nothing like other convertibles I've owned (this is my fourth), but a little. All worth it for having a tan 365 days a year.

IMHO e93 doesnt look good when top down because the body style is supposed to be a coupe.

Congrats! Not exactly E92 to E93, my E92 was a 335xi. But you will love it with the top down!

Just went the same route. Defintley a bit slower. Can't make the tires chirp in MDM mode like my E92. But really don't mind as goes plenty fast once its get going and handing is the same. Also the sound just from stock exhaust is heavenly. If you aren't going to track the car, you can;t beat the top down driving, well worth it. I love my farmers tan.

I went from an e90 335 xi to e93 M3: the best experience with top down, doubt if I will ever trade out.

You know how people say this all the time? I never believed it; I always have music (or sometimes talk radio) on. Always. Until my M3 Vert European Delivery last month. I had my iphone plugged in, but it got a lot of rest when I would just turn the music off and listen to the engine as I was shifting up and down, sometimes just to hear that noise. Sweet.

*(It was also pretty great cranking the Premium Sound with the top down).
