I'm in...

The vert is actually my wife's car. It's Alpine White, but with a black hardtop for the winter. My wife calls it the "Tuxedo".


Here's me standing next to her car at Bimmerfest in Sept., which is parked one car away from "Way Too Cool for School" DropTop King George

10 things I have to tell passengers in my vert

Stuff I have to tell passengers in my convertible:
1. Swing your butt onto the seat, then bring your legs in
2. Shut the door gently!
3. Öand donít shut the door by pushing on the edge of the frameless glass!
4. Push the button, then tilt the seat forward (for those getting in the back)
5. Slide the seatbelt out from under the centre clip before trying to put the belt on
6. Slide the belt back under the clip when you get out, so it doesnít flap around as soon as I get some speed up later on
7. Duck! (If youíre in the back seat and Iím putting the roof up/down)
8. Front cupholder is for the driver, by default
9. Donít push the door open with your foot!
10. No. There is no button to put the window up and down in the back seat.

Please feel free to add more if you've got 'em!

I guess you probably blew the flap valve right out of the tailpipe then!
