BMW M4 Convertible


Can BMW make the M4 Convertible to be as fun as its brother, the M4 Coupe
To find out, BMW took a trip over to Munich to sample, over a series of twistier and some high-speed cruising, the new 2015 M4 Convertible.
The M division sees the M4 Convertible as a car requested by a small, yet passionate and wealthy M3/M4 owners.

Immediately the M4 Convertible stands out with the typical M design cues: an aggressive front apron, the 3D shaped kidney grille with the M logo, the flared wheel arches and the iconic four tailpipes. Add to these the beautiful Moonstone Metallic paint from the BMW Individual catalog and some black wheels, and you have a looker on your hands.
Compared to the coupe, the M4 Convertible not only gets a retractable hardtop but also gets an additional 250 kilograms of weight for a total of 1750 kilos (3858 lbs). The three-piece folding metal roof can be operated at speeds up to 18km/h, an impressive engineering feature with a roof this large. It also takes 20 seconds to fully retract the roof, another impressive figure.

When the roof is down, you have the choice to put up the wind blocker (if there’s nobody in the back seat) and BMW now offers a first for an M car – an optional neck warmer. Furthermore, the wind blocker folds into a small space and BMW has thoughtfully given it its own storage area behind the folding rear seats.
One good thing about riding with the top down is the pure sound of the engine. Yes, it is not the V8 we all got to love in the previous generation M3, but the growling sound from the 3.0 liter turbo is satisfying for most BMW fans. 

Taking another lesson learned from the 4 Series Convertible by using a button on the inside of the boot lid which lets you lift the metal roof pieces up and down allowing for easier loading of things to the boot.
