E93 M3



I think the rear overhangs too much with the roof gone. It just seems so much longer without the roof.

I thought of this myself. Have I completely distorted my perspective? It looks almost like a 6 series.:smile:

too big...If I wanted a vert that big I would opt for a 6 series. JMO plus I still can't get past the hood bulge...I thought it would grow on me but it hasn't.

I'm not exactly feeling the M3 conv. I went to the movies last night and saw a dark gray coupe parked in front of a restaurant valet. OMFG!! I will own an M car. I'm not positive, I'm definite.

Yea, the M3 coupe is stunning and I am fond of the sedan as well, but the convertible seems stretched from the side.

E90 takes the cake...E92 is also nice while a vert M3..I never understood High performance convertible.. If I would own a convertible I would just cruise in it enjoy the sun the wind and not getting crazy(scared of rollovers)

I've never understood the point behind the m3 vert. I do see a few middle aged housewives driving them around the philly burbs though, I guess they are appealing because they are more "exclusive."

They cheapen the M3 moniker with this garbage. M3 should be a car that scares the posers away. Sedans, convertibles, touring wagons...blech. BMW has lowered the bar here.
