We knew it was only a matter of time before BMW would take the can opener to its 400 HP uber-coupe, and these newest spy shots prove that development is well underway. While little has changed from the standard 3-series cabrio, the fender flares, cut-up front fascia and quad exhaust are clearly M-specific kit, despite the lack of visible vents in the hood and on the front quarter panels.
We somehow doubt that a carbon fiber folding roof mechanism will be part of the package, but we'd like to be pleasantly surprised when the M3 convertible makes its debut in Geneva next year.

      Sexy. Wonder how long 'til rich kids start braining themselves in them on the LIE.

        I was thinking the same thing. LI yuppie posers, your car has arrived.

      The return of the poseur-mobile. The old M3 convertible was exclusively for trophy wives and poseur-dudes and total junk on the track. LOL What was it like a 3800lbs car (from 3400lbs)? The M is for "massively overweight" I guess. LOL.

      How much you wanna bet this is the first M3 over 4000 pounds. 2 tons of M3 fun! ugh.

      Meh, I'm already bored with the new M3, and I think a lot of other people are as well. Regardless of how it drives, it gives off the impression that it's moved upmarket into GT territory. Much fewer of these cars will be used on the track than the e46 M3's, and that's depressing.

      Crossing fingers for a tii to renew my faith in BMW.

      the roof probably will be carbon fiber. The roof on the Coupe is... why not the convertible?

      e30 - Pure race car
      e46 - Race car in a tuxedo
      e36 - underpowered race car in a tuxedo
      e90/92/93 - AMG...

      This is the way most reviews are rating the new M3.

      Sure a little faster in a straight line, but over all not as good as the other M'3 as it is less raw feeling more AMG like.

      how come the back of the Hyundai Genisis from yesterday looked more like a BMW then this shot.
      the tail light of this BMW looks like a hyundai.
      ya think Hyundai's design team is like "oh crap, now we need to change everything again"
