It's a well-known fact that the automotive press has run out of superlatives for the BMW 3-series lineup. In the case of the M3, the ultimate 3-series, the praise is typically amplified. Well, not so much for the convertible M3. You see, the automotive press has a penchant for very odd vehicles the general buying public simply doesn't understand, so we tend to eschew the cars "normal" people want. As a member of the press, I'm required to beg BMW for an M3 wagon instead of this goofy M3 convertible. The truth is, neither model makes much sense.inline_mediumwraptextright24968248/reviews/editors_notebook/0908_2009_bmw_m3_convertible0908_01_z+2009_bMW_m3_convertible+front_three_quarter_view.jpgTrue
