Looks miles better than the coupe ! Especially the roof line and the trunk shape, much more sporty and aggressive. Too bad about the weight and the other performance inconveniences of a convertible, but it looks great.

The base model 17" wheels are just hilarious...you can't drive on the road like that. The 17" did fit the e90/e92 because the overall tire diameter is lower on the previous model, but in this new model 17" looks just bad and shouldn't be offered as standard at these price points.

Why does goes awd always not include the msport suspension. I hate that with a passion. Same up charge for Msport and an up charge for awd. We should at least get the lowered suspension and better handling

The shape of the seats looks great and much more 4 series category than the coupe's.The whole interior feels more upper scale.
And the black leather seats with blue stitching in the M sport!!!!!!woooooow!!!
I was hoping for an option like this for the 4 coupe...its unfair ....

I guess that settles it. No optional 6MT in the US!
Im guessing if you want 6MT, BMW(classic) is gonna make you pay "M" tax (aka buy the M4 vert for $85+K)

This is actually a beauty ... No way the E93 is better, it's day and night difference. Now, I'm thinking of trading my F10 for this one.

Agree the gray is dream car, like the AW too.

Seems like im the minority here.. I actually really like the look of the coupe. Something about 4 series convertible that doesnt sit right for me. Like the size is kinda awkward now. Not small nor big. I'm sure it'll sell good, and I guess I cant fully judge before seeing it in person.

Agreed. E93 is no match BUT 4 coupe is still a clear winner here.

Neck warmers? That is awesome! 40% stiffer suspension. Hardtop retractable , Respectable 0-60 (435) and newly designed roll bars. I think this drop top is a winner.

Agreed. I used to see people driving in their Mercedes verts with neck heaters and being supremely jealous. BMW is still catching up in some respects, but glad they figured this one out, especially since I like the top down even on the cold days.

I love the seats.

Definitely has some nice features, but looks very awkward in some pics. The gray/red looks very tempting though....

I'm still going to be in love with my E93 for a while.

Looks nice, but I've always liked coupes more.

Did anyone notice the picture of the side air breathers in EBII? So I'm guessing there is now the option of having them painted body color instead of black. It should he'll make it look more subtle I think.

Looks surprisingly better than the E93 IMO. I still don't like the "jigsaw puzzle" roof cuts of the E93 (I have a '13 E93 M3 and I bought it in black even though I much prefer Space Gray because I find that it hides the cuts much more) and I'll reserve judgment of whether this 4-series is improved until I can see it in-person.

One thing I definitely like is the black roof molding for the M Sport version, which I am hoping will also be offered on the M4. For me the big question is: Will they reduce weight on the M4 Convertible significantly compared to my bloated E93 M3 Convertible with their new CF efforts? I'll be VERY disappointed if their weight savings measures on the M4 coupe don't follow over to the M4 convertible, as the weight (due to the hardtop) is my biggest gripe compared to my more nimble old E46 M3 Convertible. Here's to hoping for some CF in the M4 convertible!

But overall this looks great. Looks fantastic in Mineral Gray and will probably look even better in the M4 body.
