The BMW 3-Series E93 is hands down one of the most successful hard-top convertibles ever produced. The designers of the Brand managed to make the car look good both with the top down and up, which is not that easy to achieve (Think of the Renault Megane II Convertible or a Nissan Silvia S15 Varietta with their hideous boot shapes).
Being a driver-oriented car the 3-Series convertible provides impressive performance and precise handling despite a pretty big weight for a car of this class added by the retractable roof with the motor (Kerb weight is around 1800kg / 4000lbs).
Even though BMW did a great job in making this car look great and feel fast, there’s always some room for improvement. The owner of this beautiful purple E93 convertible Roy Lohman decided not to settle with stock and turn his favorite convertible into real eye candy.
The ground-hugging stance was achieved by installing an Accu Air I Level air suspension with a custom-made hardline installed at the back Seats. The car sits low on a set of custom 18” BC forged wheels with a polished step lip and deep concave centerpiece coated with gold paint, which looks exceptionally well with a Plum Explosion exterior wrap by 3M.
Upfront you can notice the full carbon M3 hood and M-Tech bumpers with custom-made carbon fiber splitters. The tailpipe of the straight pipe exhaust is barely noticed through the sharp-looking custom rear diffuser.
The interior is enhanced with a pair of Recaro sport buckets and a performance-oriented steering wheel.
To back up the looks Roy decided to go with a Stage 1 chip tuning and install the BMW performance big brake kit to balance it out.
