The BMW M3 Convertible is getting a new carbon fiber aerodynamic dress-up courtesy of US tuner Vorsteiner, proving yet again that when it comes to high-performance BMWs, the US tuning company certainly knows what its doing.

By releasing their new carbon fiber bootlid and making it available for the BMW M3 Convertible, Vorsteiner is giving the high-performance Beamer not only a more aggressive aerodynamic upgrade, but also a performance boost that should give the car an even more powerful bite to go with its imposing bark.

The car’s new carbon fiber "duck bill" bootlid bears some striking similarities to what you can find in the BMW M3 CSL in that it has the "latest pre-preg autoclave construction with a high gloss automotive lacquer". According to Vorsteiner, the material is one of the lightest of its kind among all others available in the market today. Despite the talks surrounding it, the bodywork is still in its final stages, but you can expect it to be available at Vorsteiner dealerships in the coming months.

I can see that the upgrade in terms of the aerodynamic. However , the speed performance of the car wasn’t mentioned in article. I hope to read the full details.

I think this car is kind of small and not spacious. And i really don’t know if it’s comfortable to seat on passenger seat!

Impressive! Convertible version is the best concept that I’ve ever known. Aside from that the carbon richness of this model makes it more luxurious. I Hope to read the figures of this car.

Yeah, I think you’re right that thing and this look too similar with each other. But this one is not a joke, so either have to love or hate it.

Maybe this is where the guys at BMW got the M3 pickup joke from. Just take a look on this one, you just put a roof on the seats and you have got that one.

Yeah, it does look like a sedan with a chopped up roof. I wish they could have made this one a bit more elegant as a top down. In any case, it would be better to keep the top up for this one.

@leezyking, I don’t think so. For me, I like the Cabrio concept and convertible are great. However, I guess the convertible version doesn’t fit on the M3 because of the edgy aesthetic.

Whether it’s a coupe or a convertible, there really isn’t much love for me on the M3. I kinda looks rather bulky and ugly and I have seen better competition.

Well, I actually find the convertible a refreshing take on the M3. I find the regular car a tad too uninspired. It doesn’t fee; amu different from other sedans.

Yes, this car needs to just stay as a coupe and sedan.

Agreed. When compared to other convertibles, its body doesn’t look sleek or sexy. There needs to be more improvement on the design side.

Looks like a brick to me. OK, the car is actually good, but I am not really fond of seeing the M3 as a convertible, there is something in it that doesn’t really fit the clas
