Welcome the all new 2015 BMW M4 Convertible.
The highlight for BMW at the New York Autoshow has to be the M4 Convertible. The car shares the same drivetrain and dimensions as the M4 Coupe, but ditches its fixed top for a retractable hard top and weighing in at around 3900lbs.
BMW has confirmed that the car will arrive to U.S. showrooms during the summer of 2014 and will be priced nicely at $73,425 (including Destination & Handling).
Have a first look at the F80 M3 and an F30 M Performance Parts equipped 3 Series side-by-side.

This new exhibit is on display in the lobby of the BMW Museum – featuring an e30 M3 race car and two actual F8x test mules. The M4 is in Austin Yellow and the M3 in black. Both cars were driven by engineers and BMW’s factory DTM drivers on the Nürburgring / Nordschliefe. The M4′s dashboard was signed by the DTM drivers; a nice touch for these special cars.

The 2015 BMW M4 and M3 are now also hitting dealers for special events and showings, just as these two did at a dealer in Luxembourg.
I was at the BMWCCA hosted M School in South Carolina this weekend and while I will post a review of the school later (short story: it was awesome!), I got a surprise when I was wandering the grounds during lunch hour when I saw a F80 M3 parked by the school’s cars. The guy driving it was very cool and let me snap photos with the caveat that this is a pre-production model and what you see not is not what you might … CONTINUED
