Wind in your hair makes M3 even more thrilling


A lot of money for a 3-Series BMW

Written by Parkers Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 6 June 2019


A very impressive piece of kit, with sufficiently enhanced looks to distinguish it from cooking 3-Series models, the drop top simply adds an extra layer of appeal to the M3’s already compelling specification. Ultimately the loss of the metal roof makes it less suitable for the race track, but that’s not the point of this car. It’s an everyday useable high performance car that you can also enjoy poodling about soaking up the sun in.

You’ll have to spend an awful lot of money to feel like you have much more of a car.
