Issue:5786 (2 April 2008) (p. )         (Click Here for more stories from this issue).
Review:Tuner beats the M3 drop-top to market, and gives it a lot to live up to

Handling virtually matches that of Coupe

First Verdict
Excellent drop-top beats factory car to market (just) and is sure to attract sales as a result

So Good
  • Monster performance from twin-turbo straight six
  • Excellent six-speed auto gearbox, not a manual
No Good
  • Fuel economy sits at around 20mpg in the real world
  • Potential depreciation
  • Understeer at high speeds
