NEW 1 series convertible when?!

When is it coming out!?

BMW is doing a great job of hiding all sources of info on the coupe...and the convertible.

None of us have any clue to what the design of the US spec coupe/convertible will look like.
Release dates and such....who knows how accurate the "official internet reveal" is and so forth.

If the official internet reveal of the new 1 series convertible is slated for July 2013....then when does it hit production and when does it arrive in dealerships in the US?

*I wanted to hold onto my 2011 128i convertible (10k miles) but it has been smacked with 2 horrendous stone chips the size of bb pellets. AND Repainting will only cause a mis-match of the metallic paint...so best I can do is touch it up. A professional will aid me in perfection in this...but they will still be visible. With these flaws & a claim for a rock damaged cracked windshield on the way for my car....I looks like I can only look forward to the next best thing a replacement to my E88 convertible.

I don't want to get antsy but I am already. My E88 is a nice professionally detailed car...it just has some bad luck on it's side. Stone chips can kill a gorgeous car.

I question that we sort of know what the 4 coupe will look like, but have no idea of the 2 coupe.

Question Maybe...

Could that be related with the different reception that the F20 and F30 had in public???

Maybe there are some changes being done on the f20 front!!!

Have you tried Dr. Colorchip? I got a fairly large stone chip (approx 1cm) on my hood about 3 months into ownership (Alpine White). It's noticable from ~1 foot only because I know it's location and the touch-up paint isn't as deep as the factory paint (I realize I could add layers of paint to bring it flush to the factory depth).

Of course, could be a different story with a metallic paint (and Blue Water Metallic is a beautiful color - I wish it was offered on the M-Sport).

I wish it was too. I went back and forth 100 times between a Msport lemans blue/black...but the blue water/all light grey interior with moonlight top was the best in my opinion. I still have my first car...a E30 1988 325i in Cirrus Blue Metallic/Silver grey leather.
So I decided to get the light blue/light grey combo to match the E30.
Didn't care about msport when it came to the color I wanted....

Would have got a 135i convertible in blue water, but it was out of my price range. I'd have to go coupe to get a 135i. I wanted a convertible. Only.


*In terms of the Dr Colorchip: Im very skeptical about it because of the press it got in a newspaper product review. The guy showed a video and said it's a waste of money. He had a maroon Saab. The paint didn't match either. Paint matching issues are a reason I wish I just bought a Alpine White car!!!!
