The 8 Series Convertible sits in an interesting little niche, costing much less than the bigger, plusher Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet and proving more practical than the Porsche 911 Convertible. But although it looks like a comfy cruiser, it can seriously motor on winding roads. Just don’t expect the same level of driver involvement that you get from the Porsche.

We’re yet to try the 840d, but our experience of it in the coupe suggests it’s probably the engine to go for. It’s a smooth engine with oodles of low down shove that makes overtaking easy, yet decent fuel economy means you won’t be stopping every other hour to fill the tank.
