is it hard top convertible then???
or it a regular looking coupe, but the top comes off manually to become a convertible?....like the ford thunderbird
yes, you seem very confused indeed.
3er CC will be a 3er cabrio with automatic metal folding roof. Do you understand now?
Btw, CC (coupe-cabrio) label is widely used in Europe for cabrios with metal folding roof.

|Is cancellation of 4 series name definitiv ?|
Yes. E92 and E93 (coupe and CC) will be badged as 3er. It has something to do with marketing reasons (too strong 3-series name/brand cachet, marketing costs, etc). In simple words: BMW could go with 4er, but they realised it would be safer, simplier and cheaper to stick to 3er label.
But scott26 said that BMW will save the 4er label for yet unknown future model - not necessary based on 3er platform.
3er Coupe press launch is scheduled for December 2005, and 3er CC ~ 6 months later (~ May 2006).
