BMW 4 Series M440i Convertible review 2022: a drop-top you can daily

Despite moving over to a fabric roof, the new 4 Series Convertible feels almost identical to the coupe version and will arguably be easier to live with than the upcoming drop-top M4. Look passed the grille (we’re still getting used to it) and you’ll find a seriously capable sports car. In M440i guise, the 4 Series Convertible produces 347hp from a twin-turbocharged straight-six petrol engine and will go from 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds. It’s pretty quick at dropping the roof too at 18 seconds, and can do so at speeds of up to 31mph. And being made of fabric, the folding roof is around 40% lighter than the outgoing metal version. So should you spend the extra £5,000 over the standard 4 Series to get the drop-top?
