Well like Furious said the coupe is faster then the cab. I'm not sure it worked but from another post I attached a page of the BMW M series break down all the way from the M1 to the CSL and the M3 coupe and cab are quite a few steps away from eachother concidering the difference. The convertable is definatly un-notisably slower and you have the option of loosing the top. Also, if you live where it snows quite a bit and you have some extra money, I believe they offer a hard top for the convertable.
If you get the hardtop for the Cab, it is actually full featured
If you opt for the convertible M3 there is an optional hardtop available which is a body-colored hardtop with integrated rear window defroster, retractable coat hooks, and individual reading lights front and rear.
That seems pretty good too me but I have heard that it is a little pricy.
Sorry, Here is the whole thing to the second quote
I have a titanium silver ragtop with the hardtop.
It definately makes the car look completely different. Even on hot days, I sometimes cruise w/ the hardtop....and all the windows down....I get many compliments.
ahem i should get credit for that Ultimate M article.. hehehe (joking)
but seriously the other and looming reason i prefer a coupe is because of the weather here. i cant enjoy the weather year round other wise i would consider the cab. either or i like them both . id take one if offered.
