supposedly the upcoming BMW 8-series convertible (doesn't look any different than a new 6 to me....)

Nice snapping there! Yup, itís the 8. Interesting that convertibles are going back to canvas hoods nowadays. Makes for a better looking car mind.

By the way; welcome to the forum! Iím sure you will like it here.

Well the trend away from those folding metal tops is for a while now, let's be honest, few managed a good looking shape (3/4 series, Volovo C70, but few others), and approx. 101% of them were leaking at some sealing at some point. Add in the weight penalty, manufacturing cost and follow up warranty cost due to the complexity, and - again for complexity and weight reasons - not being able to open at anything more than walking pace if at all in move, plus the improved sound Isolation and durability of fabric roofs nowadays, and few "pro" arguments remain. Even the "slicing uzp a cabrio roof" has gone back IMO, I guess some cheap "key less entry hack devices" offer a much easier way nowadays to break into cars...

Can mods merge this with the existing 8 series thread?

Thanks! I'm not a pro but I take a lot of pictures in my spare time and come across camouflaged cars now and then :) I think there are some test drivers near my place. I'll post more stuff when I get to see something exiting.

I recommend that you put a simple watermark on these photos, its great to have some in house original content.
