Great review. I see all this horsepower as a statement of confidence when trying to pass 6 trucks as quickly as possible. Sustained triple digit speeds will inevitably lead to sustained interactions with legal professionals.

I have to take a ride in one of these convertibles--the accolades about the fabric roof are everywhere: BMW engineering hasn't lost all its foo apparently!

Naahh, not confidence--fun! I have ~730hp to all 4 wheels or 800+ at the crank. I don't use it to pass trucks (well, I do of course ), I use it to have fun from traffic lights against mothers in minivans or to scare myself on a lonely desert interstate or to piss a Lamborghini or ten off off at a dragstrip... or merely to enjoy the push of ~850 ft Ibs of torque in your lower back at 50mph in 4th gear.

In Germany, however, I'd use it every day... over here, yeah, the legal interactions do tend to increase--> the subjective risk vs. reward equation I guess.

You are correct--the only thing you see moving sometimes for 50 miles or so is tumbleweed.
