Sweet. Different seats and dash trim options than the coupe.

But...$72K for a fully optioned 435i convertible??

Laugh now, but I have seen more 3 series verts in the $60k range than M3s at my local dealership. Sickening. Absolutely Sickening

I would not buy a 435 'vert if it was $40k. The pricing is just laughable.

I wonder if BMW is just padding its sales stats. I just cannot fathom spending anywhere near what they are asking for a pretty basic car. Like the standard 4 series coupe, it is boring styling, nothing new really technology wise, and vastly overpriced. BMW's were never a bargain, but this is in a different league.

.. just thought of this.

How is resale going to work for the current 3/4 series? I highly doubt someone is going to pay $40-45k or so for a no options convertible in 2 years.

These cars are going to depreciate faster than anything else around. (assuming they are bought in the first place)

Idk. I had a tough time transitioning from e46 to E9x platforms and still feel like a proper BMW driver whom participates in the heritage that is BMW. Now, its so far detached from what BMW developed from that I'm just not a BMW fan anymore. In fact, I kind of see no more passion in entry level BMW cars, all I hear around town is 20 year old girls and blue collar guys talking about how "sick" or "fancy" the new 4 series is. Its the brand's level for morons now who think they're "Sweeter" than Mercs/Audis.
Ill prob just have an I3 (saving up) and an E90 M3 in the stable for a long time….

Flamesuit on big time

The X5, 5er, and 7er are still cool cars but the 1/2/3/4 series ESP the "M performance" models that are NOT M cars have opened up the market to entry lvl BMW owners and "M enthusiasts" who do NOT know the difference between oversteer/understeer and upshifting/downshifting or horsepower/torque… or even ///M cars and M performance cars. Sickening

Whats this "neck warmer" thats now in the cold weather package!

totall got screwed on my '13 F30 M Sport

-Black leather now has optional "blue trim" which looks to compliment the Estoril Blue color
-Heated M Steering wheel
-Neck Warmer



Wow $68K the way I would build it, yeah I will take an M3 instead!

BMW lost a sale to my friend who wanted a 435i with manual. He's now hoping that the M235i vert doesn't get castrated in this way as well...

What happened to the convertible sport style seat on the luxury line? I hope this is just a bug.

Really have to see one in person, but I'm not seeing an opinion change coming up now, esp with these prices.. Looks like I might go with a 11 or 12 335i vert instead of this..

Well, I just did about 120k worth of upgrades to a e90 330i (assuming gran turismo has any bearing on real life).

So with stg 3 weight reduction and 600 WHP, it might be possible to own a $200k F33 3 series. Naturally, I would debage, put ebay ///m fenders on and run a ZERO tailpipe exhaust (sleeper nissan versa catback). And then seal the deal with some classy Privat Akzent wheels, which I learned is actually german for "high performance wheels".

I'd probably lease and with the right Russian money laundering 3rd party agency, I expect a monthly payment of ~400/mnth.

Eh, I play Forza. If I remember correctly, I bought a Veyron SS for 1,000 cr (iirc, 1cr = roughly 1 usd). I had level 4 affinity, so free parts. Every time I dinged it, the game would fix it afterwards.

Thus, a veyron can be had for $1000, and insurance costs nothing on a veyron.
