    Three appearance packages are available, each lending a distinctive look to the 3 Series sedan. This is more noticeable on the coupe, which has large air intakes instead of fog lights on the convertible. Beemers are BMW motorcycles. I had the convertible tweeting in German about the temperature and what I was driving or listening to. There were a lot of videos out there on the folding roof but none really focused in on the mechanism so we shot what I think is a unique angle on this so you can see the intricate maneuvers going on.

    What better time is there than this to drive a BMW convertible? Sometimes, we in the automotive press, spend too much time talking …. Sometimes, we in the automotive press, spend too much time talking about the latest and greatest, forgetting about the here and now. This realization dawned on me while taking in the stunning view of the low slung, wide M-Sport package BMW i Convertible, top down in the shimmering sunlight next to the lake in LeMans Blue Metallic with its cream beige Dakota leather.

    The E93 3 series convertible was launched in with a folding hard top. This marked a first for BMW who seemed to be moving on from their folding fabric tops or at least I thought until the new F13 6 Series convertible debuted last year with a cloth top. The benefits of the folding hard top include much improved rearward visibility with the top up compared to the previous E46 3 Series convertible as well as increased sound deadening.

    With the hard top up, you do get a very reasonable 9. This folded bag in my experience is a huge PITA to fold back properly flat once unfurled. The E90 sedan debuted in and received its mid-cycle refresh in and concluded its run in This was mostly accomplished through a different front clip. The most significant mid-cycle change to the E93 cab i was pulling the twin-turbo N54 out of the i and stuffing a N55 single twin-scroll turbo in, though power outputs remained the same at hp and lb-ft of torque.

    Starting in , the i variant soldiers on with the same N52 inline 6. BMW added a new top-end enthusiast oriented model, the is for and onward models which has a faster version of the older motor N54, the likes of which found its way into the 1M. BMW Apps became available beginning with March production. I absolutely love BMW Apps. I had the convertible tweeting in German about the temperature and what I was driving or listening to.

    Check out chuckvossler to see the actual tweets. I realize that these are preordained tweets from BMW but I think its really cool how they can plug things that are going on around you in the text of the tweet, like what song you are listening to or what the temperature is outside. How did I get mine to tweet in German? I had no idea that BMW would then automatically start tweeting in German. BMW is the first car manufacture to install sun-reflective leather for cooler seating.

    How do they make the leather cooler? Simple, the leather contain a unique pigment that is imbedded in it that reflects infrared radiation at a wavelength of nanometers. BMW also offers a a special wind deflector that helps reduce air swirling within the cabin. As with other BMW convertibles, automatic rollover hoops deploy to provide an extra safety cushion in the case of a rollover. This is complimented with integrated seat side-airbags that offer protection from side impact no matter the angle of the seat back.

    BMW has reinforced the floor pan that helps transmit side impact forces away from the passengers. The front A-pillar and the rest of the windshield frame act as a front roll over brace. The BMW i has the N52 3. It has a lot of light weight materials such as aluminum and magnesium as well as hollow camshafts, but not Direct Fuel Injection. I can be walking down a sidewalk and tell that one is coming up the street without even seeing it be it an E30 or an E There is just something unique about its low frequency rumble when they are running.

    Per Car and Driver a i is quicker off the line and BMW says the convertible hits 60 mph in a claimed 5. It hits expansion strips on bridges and gaps in the road with a thud with zero cowl shake. The seating position was easy to perfect with the power adjustable seats which contain a side impact bag and seatbelts.

    The M-Sport steering wheel with the optional sport shift paddles were perfect. God, I love hydraulic steering. I hate that the trend is to get rid of it. With the paddle shifts, it was easy to change gear the way you wanted to, when you wanted to. Just looked it once and I was good to go.
