The full build-your-own configurator (with pricing) for the 2014 4 Series Convertible is now online at BMWUSA.com.
With the BMW 4 Series Convertible (F33) making its world debut this week at the LA Auto Show, BMW is now unabashedly driving fully uncovered test vehicles in public on multiple continents.
The 435i Convertible M Sport in Estoril Blue (exclusive M Sport color) was recently spotted in Germany while the 435i Sport Line Convertible in Melbourne Red was making its rounds in Malibu, California. Thanks to Dackelone and CPWINCH for the photos.
Production on the 4 Series Convertible begins this month and will arrive in US showrooms in the first quarter of 2014. The 428i Convertible is priced in the U.S. beginning at $49,675 and 435i model at $55,825 (not including destination & handling for both).

You can now configure / visualize your 4 Series Convertible at BMWUSA.com.
Have a look at the latest F33 4 Series convertible prototype, revealing more of its defining characteristic – its metal folding roof. Earlier spyshots (reposted below) show the hard top operation and the design is largely similar to the current E93 convertible.
The F33 will share the same engine and transmission options as the F32 coupe, as well as the coupe’s general styling. So, imagine the coupe that you’ve seen revealed, but with this metal folding top.
Production of the 4 Series convertible (both 435i and 428i) begins later this year – in November 2013.

BMW Insider Scott26 provides a preview of the upcoming F33 4 Series Convertible:
We will shortly be seeing FEP (final evaluation phase) F33 Cabrios very soon as they have arrived for camouflage application at the FIZ , some other new unseen models have arrived in order to begin public testing.
In the meantime we know what the car will bring.
The 4er Cabrio will be launched six months after the Coupe later this Spring.
Which means we will see it later this year with a debut set for the NAIAS in 2014. Before arriving in early 2014.
Instead of a request by the North American market to utilise a soft top so customers could distinguish the Coupe from the Cabrio. BMW responded to the reaction of the Chinese … CONTINUED
The F32 4 Series coupe was spotted at the Nurburgring for the first time today, and not content to have the coupe model have all the fun, the F33 4 series convertible is also running at the Ring today.
As previously covered, the convertible will likely be joined by the coupe and any rumored Gran Coupe model in being re-badged as a 4 Series.
While this prototype remains heavily camouflaged, we recently spotted the F33 convertible top down for the first time, with its folding hardtop roof neatly folded away (images reposted below). If you notice, the front seats appear to be different in the track photos than the ones seen in the top-down pics. This prototype’s front seats seem to have a sportier/bulkier and more premium … CONTINUED
We bring you the first ever look at the F33 3 Series convertible (or 4 Series as it may be called when released) in testing with its hardtop roof retracted. The F33 largely shares the same proportions with the current E93 3 series convertible, although like the rest of the new F3x 3 series generation of cars, it will have slightly shorter overhangs, a longer wheelbase, and a bit more rear legroom.
These photos also represent the first clear look at the interior of the F33 convertible, which, from what can be seen, looks largely the same as the F30 3 series sedan. But, the rear view mirror is different, as is the new iDrive knob and controller system.
We also notice something curious about the front seats, … CONTINUED
We’re happy to share the first spyshots of the F33 4 Series Convertible with its top down and in operation. Earlier spyshots suggested that the 4 Series Convertible will retain its folding hard top mechanism, first introduced on the predecessor E93 3 Series Convertible. These spy photos officially confirm this. As far as we can tell, the hard top operation and design is largely similar to the E93′s so we wouldn’t be surprised if this was a takeover from the current car.
That’s where the similarities end in these photos, as the F33 sports unique seat which remind us of the F12/3 6-series seats, and which could signal an upmarket position from the F30 3 series sedan. The exterior is still heavily camouflaged (no, the round rear … CONTINUED
