Roadshow: 2019 BMW M850i Convertible Review: So good, you won't stop driving it




Full Review Article: https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/review...rtible-review/

Summary: "All told, it's tough to find flaws with the 2019 BMW 8 Series Convertible. In ordinary driving, it's sublimely relaxing and easy to live with. Driven with enthusiasm, it attacks a back road with more speed than you'll ever really need or use. And on top of that, the big convertible has curb appeal for days and first-rate technology. It's been a while since I so thoroughly enjoyed driving a new BMW.

The most telling thing of all, though, is that being behind the wheel of the 8 Series just makes me want to drive it more. That's exactly how a grand tourer should make its driver feel, and it underlines that BMW has hit its mark with the new 8 Series."

I had a chance to play with the M850i convertible at Peter Pan BMW and I was really impressed. I should have driven it but I didn't want my wife and 3y/o wondering where daddy went. The sound is especially good with the top down. The only negative is the seating position is a little high.

We made a PR event with two 850i Convertible at the Baikal Lake so that car isn't only for Florida or Cali 🙂😁

The 8-series' rear 3/4 is to die for. I can't wait to see the roofline on the Gran Coupe.
