e93 - Back seat falls down at speed...

This has happened to me twice now in the 10days I've had my new M3 Convertible...

When driving on the motorway with the roof and windows down, at approx. 75mph, the back seat suddenly falls flat on it's face. The first time this happened, I made sure it was back in place securely. Then last night it happened again.

Anyone else experienced this? I've got the 1200mile service booked in 10days time, so I'll ask them to have a look then.

Apart from that, everything else about the car is a joy. 600miles and counting...

Congratz on the car. I'm waiting on my order, I want a white one. I had that happen to my brothers 335 but it was just wasn't secured from bringing the seats down earlier. I'll ask him if there was more too it and get back to you.

Happened to me once on the highway when the car was only a couple days old. But it was because I didn't secure it properly!

if you made sure it was placed securely just have the dealer look at it.

Had it happen to me once at speed but I don't think the windows were down. Anyone else heard the buffeting sound with the top up people on e90 boards talked about, maybe I am being overly sensitive to it.

I have about 1300 miles on my E93 M3, and no buffeting at all with the top up any any speed.

Glad you are enjoying the car dar2008! I think you should get your back seat looked at because this has never happened to me!

Haven't had that happen yet -- granted it's only been five days since I've had the car.
