Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The new 8 Series Convertible has a folding fabric roof rather than a complex metal set-up. It opens and closes in just 15 seconds at speeds of up to 31mph. Carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic construction means that BMW's engineers haven't had to go all that overboard to retain as much of the Coupé's rigidity as possible.

Reviewers from carwow have found the following***:
The BMW 8 Series Convertible is the solution to a problem that's nice to have: how to blast from the UK to the south of France quickly but comfortably. But it isn't necessarily the only answer. There are other luxurious open-top GT cars that'll scythe their way to Saint Tropez with similar speed and grace. The best of those include the Bentley Continental GT Convertible and Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet.

Pros
  • Fantastic infotainment system

  • Back seats aren’t as comfortable as rivals
  • Alternatives are more fun to drive
