When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

Okay, sure! (good eye, observing that camera on the windshield...and I have a story about that, to add, in a moment.)

There are two videos:
2m:02seconds:


0m:49seconds:



The story:
On day One of the European Delivery, I had the GoPro suction-cup mount on the very top of the glass of the windshield. On Day Two, we headed to the Stelvio Pass via the A95 in southern Germany. A bit of road goop got on the windshield, so I pressed the washer-switch on the wipers control.

Frak!

We saw the blades come across and then the passenger-side jumped up and slammed down onto the glass. I knew right away that was the GoPro as an obstruction, but there was no way to force the wipers to immediately stop.
Swipe #2, crash. Swipe #3 -- and we saw the blade go over the roof of the car and down behind us onto the Autobahn. LOL.

We dialed-in the Sat/Nav and queried BMW Dealerships. We found one at Iffeldorf, Germany, Autohaus Widmann + Winterholler GmbH. We had to wait 45 minutes for them to open, and then found out that while the car sales section was open, the Parts Dept guy wasn't coming into work today, and we couldn't purchase anything. Go figure. The person there provided us with directions to a somewhat nearby Conrad auto parts store. We learned the name "Scheibenwischer," too. While departing the BMW dealership, we wondered if cameras would notice us borrowing an OWM wiper blade...LOL. No. Anyhow, at Conrad we bought a set (2) of wipers.

So, that's why the Stelvio Pass photos show a GoPro mounted HIGH on the vehicle.

Thanks for sharing! Looks like an awesome drive.

LOL I thought that GoPro mount location was interesting...I could imagine watching the wiper just jump and finally fall behind the car haha
