An inside source of WindingRoad has confirmed that BMW is considering a soft-top for their next M3 convertible. This means you should forget all those wonderful spy shots you’ve seen of the M3 hard-top convertible, or just keep them in the back of your mind. The new BMW 3-Series Convertible was launched at Arizona last week where questions about a high-performing hard-top convertible came up to do the weight it will have on the car. The new BMW 3-Series convertible adds a total of 440 pounds to the car.
Like the 2007 BMW 3-Series coupe the convertible will also come in two models including the 328i and the 335i, which will push 306 horsepower and have a 0-62 mph in 5.4 seconds. This is the first BMW 3-Series to come in a three-piece electronically-operated retractable hard top.
