HR&G Full Review: 2014 BMW 428i M-Sport Convertible

So while I had turned in my E93 while I was buying it out and flipping it to a CPO car, I managed to score a week of seat time in the new F33 428i M-Sport Convertible. My dealership, Passport BMW in the DC area, just happened to have one of these as a "special promo" loaner vehicle. Estoril Blue too. It was so good looking that I had to do a photo shoot of it, and figured I'd do a big write-up too. Hope you enjoy!

It's fun to be able to play auto journo on the side once in awhile, but I definitely wouldn't want to do it for a living. Lotta work.

Hope you guys find the review useful at least, and enjoy the pics!

LOTS MORE PHOTOS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE REVIEW, just attached a few here.

Hey Ron! I remember you from Nikon Cafe. I'm SP77 over there, but hardly post anymore except in the 1 section (picked up an AW1). Shot these with my Rebel T2i and 24-105L.

Thanks for the heads up Steve. I regularly post at the Cafe, usually in the PJ and Street section. If I had that blue cabrio for a week, I would probably have to buy it. There are all kinds of nice cars out there, but my 1'er only has 12,500 miles on it.

Nice way to push convertible sales!

At the end of the week it felt really strange getting back into my E93. The F33 with staggered 18's and DHP felt so tight that it really did make my base suspension LCI E93 feel like a floaty Cadillac! The updated tech and everything in the F33 was pretty cool too (vs no tech and not even iDrive in my E93, on purpose). Convinced that so long as you have either DHP or 704 that you're good to go in these cars.

Excited about the new Ford Mustang GT too (my last article). Looks like a sweet car. They've just hit Job 1 in the past few days and are rolling off of assembly lines now. Can't wait to start seeing them, and want to take one for a test drive too. After that it will be down to a 435/440i, M3/M4, or Mustang GT.

The redneck in me does want a Hellcat, but I'd just get arrested.
