BMW is strange sometimes...
I personally like the soft-top on the 6... I think it's more elegant. Maybe there are engineering obstacles associated with the larger area that needs to be covered. That's what's probably preventing them from incorporating a soft top on the 6. Then again, what other big coupe has a hard top?
I believe most (if not all) Mercedes convertible models are hard tops. Being a competitor I am surprised BMW didn't follow suit. I personally didn't buy a 6 Series in the convertible because of this. I know it's a personal opinion and everyone's will differ, but I can't stand soft tops. Something about the color not matching the body just rubs me the wrong way, like a white car with a black cloth top. I feel like I am forced into a black car just do the roof will match. Always been a deal breaker for me. Also, my wife had a cloth top and someone slashed it in a parking garage, so that was a strike against it as well
Isn't the slk a soft top. At least my ex gfs slk300 was back in the day
