F33 interior in a E93 would be perfect! Long live the N54!

Fair enough.

But the F3X center armrest does not slide... I kept bumping the e-brake.

What is so great about conv? You get dust all up in the interior and fumes from other cars around you.

It just getting a little too big for me. I also am not a fan of the front-end especially the lower fascia.

I have to see it in person.

Maybe the new 2-Series will bring the sport back.

The E93 design will endure for sure.

F33 is the best looking hard top convertible on the market.

Wow I almost thought the f33 had no b-pillar! How futuristic would that be!? Anyway its just because both windows are down, dont know if its like that on other convertibles as well. Cleverly made pictures bmw. Btw the f33 looks stunning.

No, not just the roof. The new 4er is ok looking, but isn't a radical departure from the E92/93. I love Bimmers, but the 4er doesn't have me coming back any time soon (and I owned two E46s before my E92).

I'd rather pick a E46 convert, instead of the E93 imo.
Not high, Ron. Yea, the E93 is a bit dated simply because it IS the old design, but many of the styling cues of the E92/93 carried over to the F32/33. It was a very conservative re-design. I was disappointed.

F33 hands down, the E93 looks slab sided next to it. The F33 is a much more interesting and aggressive design.

WOW! No contest here. The F33 is magnificent. It somehow looks even better than the F32. Now THIS is what a premium convertible is supposed to look like. It's like close to the 6er convertible now, especially with those gorgeous seats.

Btw, I've always hated convertibles..

Agree that it makes the E93 look dated. Badly dated as well... It's just so plain and drab sided compared with the F33.

And the interior also looks so much nicer than the cold dashboard of the E9x. Never liked how it doesn't flow into the doors, but just ends abruptly and never seemed to have been designed together with the doors.

While it makes the E93 look dated, I am not a fan of the new front-end especially the lower fascia. I love my 2011 E93, which I just managed to get after looking for the sapphire black saddle brown combo for the last two years.
