BMW Convertible Vs Audi A4 Cabriolet - Which is cooler!

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to find out your opinions. I'm trying to decide on a new car but can't decide between a BMW 3-series convertible or an Audi A4 Cabriolet.

To be honest I dont really care that much about performance, I just want something that looks cool... extremely shallow I know... but I wouldn't be getting a convertible if I wasn't!

Anyway, your opinions would be appreciated

Audi A4 Cab. We have one and it is amazing. You will be one of a small crowd if you get one, and they are wonderful. The CVT is amazing, the engine is responsive, the top is quiet and goes up and down very quickly; it is a great car.

Personally I would prefer the M3...It just looks cool, but yeah the Audi does outperform it.

I would go with the M3 because I want a N/A 6 cyl that handles very nicely. Just look at my sig and then you'll know...

I have to say...personally...if it was a BMW or Audi Convertible...and I couldnt have the M3 Convertible...I'd take next the Z4 3.0 Liter Manual Tranny...I love these cars and would love to swap in the M3 motor and really have an amazing car!

He didnt say M3, he said 3-Series. If he said M3, then I may have chosen that (or the S4). If it was a M3, the A4 Cab wouldnt touch it (performance wise). The BMW 325 Cab has just as much hp as the A4 3.0 Cab (last time I checked), so with the BMW 330 Cab, the Audi would be outperformed. In either case the Audi doesnt outperform the BMW. (Unless its 325 vs. A4 3.0; they may have switched engines, but I dont think they have; the Audi A4 1.8T is not as powerful as the BMW 325)
