It's a hard top convertible. with the M-Sport pkg. In the iS it has a performance oriented firm ride, which makes for sometimes a jarring ride. (south-eastern PA roads) RFT tires don't add any suppleness to the suspension either. BUT, this is the most fun to drive, best looking (inside or out), best performing vehicle I have ever owned. Ultimate Driving Machine? You Bet! Oh, by the way, it has averaged 22.5 MPG in 20,000 miles of mainly suburban driving. The N-54 engine is sweet & powerful.
A very fun ride! Excellent handling, good performer. Just went up 95 to Jersey from Florida and averaged 30 mpg highway.
Great vehicle except for all of the recalls.
own it for 4 years - just put in a new thermostat, second time in 4 years.
Fourth BMW I've owned...quality and outstanding comfort combined with smooth, powerful performance.
