    I didn't say anything negative! And the news does not sound good. Whatever effect you desire, it's dialed in and ready. One of the most appealing attributes of this car is obviously the fact it has a hardtop.

    BMW i DCT Convertible first UK drive

    Convertibles have always had a bit of a stigmatism surrounding them in terms of femininity, noise, handling and comfort. Not so is the case with the new BMW i Convertible. We got to push this car to its limits and back again out in the desert roads of Arizona, never once being disappointed in driving a convertible through these windy roads. With this new hardtop retractable roof being the first ever produced by BMW, it is quite obvious they did their research on it, and went through many revisions.

    Not exactly a ton of space, but certainly more than enough for bags of groceries, or your golf shoes, a broken putter and maybe a sleeve of balls. OK, so grocery shopping still has to be done with your X5, but this car was made to drive, not sit outside the Whole Foods. Under 60mph, wind buffeting was very low, even without the wind diffuser setup over the rear seats. Both myself and Agent could carry on a conversation at normal speaking levels, even while winding it out down the highway.

    Having had my fair share of convertible drives, this was a pleasant surprise. Perhaps not as big of a surprise was how well the hardtop did with keeping in the heat with the top up. Even though we were in the desert, it was still the winter and the weather was 40ss depending on the time of the day. A big bonus for us Northeasters, this is now a four season car. Hardtop functionality is totally hands off, there are no latches and no levers to push or twist.

    Simply use the button next to the iDrive, or use the key fob to complete the transition from coupe to convertible. We found it to be very quirky with limited range. US Spec cars are required to have the driver within an arms length of the car in order to active the roof up or down , but we found it to work erratically around the car, and often we had to be right up against the window.

    These were pre-production cars and were assured any type of issue like this would be resolved before production. European Spec owners need not worry, they have the ability to use the key fob from up to 40 feet away. This was my first drive with the new engine and all I can say is wow.

    A HP, lb-ft torque, in 5. Mash the throttle at any speed and at any RPM and the revs just climb, and climb fast. Even the gearbox felt smooth, well, ok, not smooth, but noticeably easier to maneuver then the E46 transmission which is notoriously known as a horribly shifting tranny. The clutch was light, but with a definitive pick up point, and it seemed to grab instantly, where as the E46 suffered from some sort of clutch valve which would moderate just when and how fast the clutch would engage.

    A very annoying aspect most enthusiasts sought out to remove. So E46 owners looking to move up, rejoice, this thing finally shifts like every other car out there. Another thing to rejoice about, the DSC is now less invasive.

    It acts more like the M3 DSC. It will show up to save your ass when you need it, and let you be otherwise, bravo BMW, from everyone who has suffered the fate of traction control kicking in when you REALLY want just the opposite, we thank you. Perhaps the success of the new DSC has to do with the new suspension as well — this car is glued to the road.

    You might not have seen it in the video we would like to keep our good standing with BMW? Every time we thought we had pushed the car enough, the suspension would just keep on The body is incredibly stiff, but the suspension is not at all harsh, the car emits very little body roll, even without the added stiffness of having a roof and when pushed to the real limits, the car understeers in a very controllable manner.
