The car has been designed with utmost care, the chrome plated steel twin exhaust pipes, side vents, air intake hole on bonnet and rear diffuser all add to the sporty look of the sedan. Along the lines of elegance, the car has been designed to offer extreme speed, even the wing mirrors have been designed aerodynamically to boost overall performance.

Interiors

A top notch sports car delivers true performance only if it has ease of accessibility for the driver and the M3 Convertible comes round on that count superbly. The cockpit ergonomics have been designed keeping that in mind. The material usage is strictly performance based but still luxurious and comfortable. Each and every element in the car has been made to add to the overall image of an athlete. The aerodynamics are most noticeable when driving at 100 kmph plus speeds, there are no air leaks within the cabin while the wind rush hardly affects those sitting inside. The seats have memory functions whereby they remember the positioning of the seat as stored by the driver. A perfect seating position is essential for comfortable driving and the electronic seat adjustment with memory function enables you and your front passenger to individually adjust the seat height, angle and length, and the angle of the backrest. The memory function enables one to save different settings for varied sitting composure, for example city driving or freeway driving setting.

This engine is synced with a 6-speed manual transmission that ensures a pleasurable drive to the owner. The V8 engine displaces 3,999cc producing ample amounts of power for the agility that only this class of car can exhibit .

Braking and Handling

The BMW M3 Convertible has double spoke alloy wheels. The front wheel dimensions are 8.5Jx18/245/40 whereas the rear wheel measures 9.5Jx18/265/40 R18 . The braking and handling is absolutely supreme, so that both the passengers and the car are safe and sound in case of emergency braking or in case of loss of control of the car. The brakes are pretty responsive and perform well even in rainy weather and tires prevent the car from skidding on any terrain. The brakes are further enhanced by cross-drilled brake disc which uses aluminium alloy. It has a high performance braking system that is impressive in all ways. The functions comprise of Dynamic Stability control, Digital Motor Electronics system, Servotronic steering, and electronic damper control . Further the convertible comes with Anti-lock Braking System along with airbags for the driver and for the co-passenger. The BMW M3 Convertible, one can say, is technically safe and secure.

Safety Features

The BMW M series is fraught with all the safety equipment. It offers a safe and secure driving experience. The standard feature is the Anti-lock Braking System which is very helpful in sudden brake applications. Dynamic Brake Control and Dynamic Stability Control make sure that the car is stable no matter what the speed is, on the given terrain, when brakes are applied. The Dynamic Motor Electronic and Electronic Damper Control make sure that there is no collision in the first place. Given all these safety measures the driver doesn’t need to bother about anything except the luxury of driving the car. The unique perforated braking system in the BMW M Series is spontaneous and being lightweight due to the extensive use of aluminium, it is more efficient and swift to act within a fraction of seconds after the brake application. The three point seat belt on the BMW M series keeps the passengers intact without exerting too much pressure on the occupants and simultaneously implementing extreme caution to avoid any sort of injuries. There are six airbags in all which protects the driver and passenger from impact of collision both sideways and front. The first aid kit is integrated into the car and is quiet handy.

Pros

Cons 

The fuel consumption is very heavy. Parts are very expensive and it can be difficult to get them. Servicing stations are limited in number.
