M3inMA is an unknown quantity at this point
I live/work just outside of Boston where the winters can be harsh and all the same, am about to buy a 1998 M3 convertible w/hard top.

Does anyone have experience using a hard top during a semi-harsh winter?
-Is the heat & sound insulation respectable?...any experience w/leaks?
-Is this an all around bad idea?

Thank you for your help!

I have heard that the hardtops on the convertables are essentially as good as the coupes. The one problem I am aware of is that it can be difficult to get the top on without a pully system in your garage or two or three people. But that is just a little price to pay for having an awsome summer car and switched to a reliable winter car.

Plus... I really like the look of a convertable hardtop
