niice is much slower than the coupe? Or would you say about the same. How is the leg room in the back compared to the coupe.

Nice Glen, with the hardtop up it looks like a pillarless coupe, reminds me of the 74 CS 3.0 I paid way to much for.

I dont follow the BMW tuning scene but I bet that a simple software upgrade would make that 335 eat a M3 for lunch. Check with Dinan or Upsolute to see if they have anything in their offerings yet. .

Does that hard top get tucked away like a soft top? I hope my wife doesn't see one for a while...

Abeal2,

The top folds right under the trunklid, check out their website for the video. My parents have the old body style and it is a great car, this looks to be even better.

That's so hot, I could make a case for it being posted in the Sand Bar.

Alright, maybe not quite so, but that is a sweet ride.

I must be getting old because I think 56K for anycar is NUTS.

I was thinking that a 335 would be low to mid fifties, i think the last model topped out right around $50K with all the options. At 56K it is getting up there, but I would rather have this then a Lexus SC 430 and that is in the 60's. Regardless, they will sell and it is a sweet ride.

Thanks Glen,

I think my 530xi goes back in Sept and am hoping to get this powertrain in the xi.

Great product!

I actually like the lines of the convertible better than the coupe...
