convertible weighs 1810KG*

Just been on BMW website. The coupe weighs in at 1655KG but that's EU spec (or something) which includes a 75KG driver. So the actual weight of the car is 1580KG. The convertible, thanks to a steel folding roof rather than carbon fiber + all the other gubbins comes out at 1885KG on the same comparison chart. So in reality, the convertible 'only' weighs 1805KG. Still heavy though - kinda puts me off. I think it's more about how light the coupe is though, rather than the convertible being especially heavy. It's still lighter than a CLK63 cab and that has a fabric roof!

I've just deleted the newly added DCT version of the car..... No need to add a new car version for the DCT/DKG gearbox.... nearly all the laptimes here are with the DCT box anyway.

I swore I would drive my e46 M3 until the wheels fell off, but that unsold e93 M3 at the dealer was discounted more every time I saw it- I finally gave in and swapped for it last week.

If y'all say it is a gay car I won't doubt you. But I would point out that for a gay car it sure as hell attracts a lot of hot chicks- go figure.

I'd love to see the 9.7 time for the cab..... it may have been using a 1ft rollout which some of the US magazine tests seem to use (which make the times quicker).

DKG/DCT adds approx 25kg to the cars weight.

damn, i just saw the picture of the 4.3 sec 0-60 and 10.7 sec 0-100 mph, thats very very impressive.

yeah the coupe has pulled a 9.2 i read it somewhere either in an article or on the internet. i wouldn't be surprised if the cabrio managed a 9.7 either, its got the power, and sure the weight is a bit high, but 9.7 is a reasonable 0-100 time for that car. how much does the dkg or dct put on the m3? i'm not sure what its called but its the f1 transmission. thanks for any helpful answers :)

no no no, the coupe has manegd a 9.2 ta 100mph and the vert has managed to get a 9.7, ill see if i can pull it up!


User avatar

Wads  9y ago

The weight is correct and yes the coupe is the one thats managed 0-100mph in 9.7sec


User avatar

supercharger  9y ago

well motortrend got the m3 coupe to 60mph in 4.1


User avatar

Anonymous  9y ago

actually is HAS pulled a 4.3 second s to 60mph in 4.3 seconds and 9.7 to 100mph, as for kmh, i havent a clue, and that weight, must have ben weighed with people inside or somthing, but thats stupid.


User avatar

venom  9y ago

that weight IS a bit strange, with that much torque it would never pull that 0-60 time within supercar territory... the sedan weighs 3585 lbs and even the coupe with dct is only 3670 (road and track) so i highly doubt this mercedes territory weight

O yeah the M3 is an excellent car, if i had tha money i would definetly get one, but i am a lil bit curious as too where they got hat 4147lbs of weight from, i have herd 3725 US spec with a full tank of gas ans liquids and all the optoins, so where does that extra 400lbs come from??


User avatar

rob  9y ago

i don't see what the big fuss is about, the m3 is a great car, whether or not its a convertible. 10.6 or 10.7 sec 0-100 is very very good for a car that weighs in at 4000+ lbs. the carrera 4s and m3 are two very different cars. one is built for fast acceleration, 0-60, 0-100,1/4 mile while the other (m3) is a quick sprinter, but more of an autobahn cruiser. so whoever the anonymous douchebag talkin bout how gay an m3 convertible is, shut the **** up and keep your damn comments to yourself.

User avatar

Anonymous  9y ago

Maybe it's a new manufacture with a 415 hp RWD coupe/convert that does 0-100 in 10.6 seconds, which is clearly "fast" unlike 10.7.

I dont think carbon fiber is on your wifes list. At least it does look somewhat like a mans car with that configeration.

People buy convertibles to look good, not to have drag races and lap test tracks

Or because their wife wouldn't let them buy the coupe......


User avatar

Wads  9y ago

I find it hard to believe that anyone would consider 100mph in 10.7 seconds slow but I guess compared to a Bugatti or Caparo anything could seem slow ;)

Who cares if it's slow? People buy convertibles to look good, not to have drag races and lap test tracks.
