Product Overview

BMW M3 E93 Convertible is a compact executive convertible in production from 2008 to 2013. It was powered by an S65 naturally-aspirated V8 engine that displaced 4.0 liters. Both manual transmission and DCT were offered.
The first M3 to come with a convertible hard top, the E93 M3 Convertible has the same drivetrain of the E92 M3 Coupe but offers two rather different driving experiences: With the top down, it is a great cruiser on long journeys. With the top up, it has rather good performance, though the Convertible is markedly heavier.
