Can't remember which car magazine I was reading but they showed a hard-roofed M3 convertable. They indicated 2008 model year. Will it come to the U.S.? BMWNA would be crazy not to.

My 2005 works that way. Ask the dealer if 2003's can be programmed to do the same thing.

What is the front made out of. From the pictures it looks like it has funny, fan-shapped patterns. Can you explain that? Is it a work in progress, finger prints from mounting?
