'08 e93 or '09 e92

Assuming price and miles are about the same between the 2, which one is better to get? I'm having a hard time deciding. I have 2 kids, a 6 y.o. and a 19 month. Is having a convertible more enjoyable than having the better CIC nav and 1 year more of warranty?

The improved iDrive and the extra year of warranty are great, but shouldn't be enough to sway you between the two. I think the crux of the decision will be if you want a 'vert or not.

I will say that my 7 and 4 yo's both loved riding in the 'vert when I went test driving, but my wife nixed it since she felt it wasn't as safe for the kids in the back.

'09 is a much better car than the '08 if you are getting Nav (much nicer) and the 6MT (revised clutch weight and shifter). It also has active headrests.
