What's the used BMW M3 sports like?

The BMW M3 Convertible is a spectacular piece of kit. With a 0-60mph time of 5.5sec, and an electronically limited top speed of 155mph, it's quick enough to scare the best supercars.

This drop-top isn't just about out-and-out performance, though. The amazing 3.2-litre 343bhp engine has the flexibility to be happy burbling along at under 30mph, too. Put your foot down, and every part of the car responds perfectly. In the corners, you get masses of grip from the wide tyres on the standard 18in alloys, and the steering gives you plenty of feedback.

Comfort inside can't really be faulted, with bespoke seats, instruments and steering wheel. The electric canvas roof – which takes 22 seconds to operate – means the car is 14mm lower than the M3 coupe. The rear seats are cramped and there's only room for two adults at most.
