Some would argue that roadsters should first and foremost be cloth so as to remain "pure", while four-seat convertibles, already being a compromise to begin with, are more suited for the additional weight of the hard top.

Just sayin. I can see both sides.

It's nice to have choices, and I suppose BMW is one of the few offering both formats.
BMW may offer different tops among its different convertibles, but Chrysler (of all the unsuspected players) actually does (or at least did) actually offer the option of a hard or soft top on the same model car. I think Mazda also does this with the MX5 too. I suppose when you have a single open top car in the lineup, this approach makes sense.
A gen-u-ine BMW eff-eight-zero with them tandem clutches in the transmission and that dad gum sun roof on the top-a da cawr.
