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
Quote:
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.

here is what one guy wrote about the hardtop
Quote:
I have a titanium silver ragtop with the hardtop.
I imagine it looks pretty good!

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.
