A folding hard-top? On a BMW?

Yep - BMW has followed arch-rival Mercedes' lead and developed its first folding tin-top for the new 3-series Convertible. It goes on sale in the UK in March priced from £33,030 for the 325i (although cheaper versions will follow), but it made its show debut here in Detroit. BMW’s sales and marketing boss Dr Michael Ganal announced that in 2006 BMW sold a record 1.36 million cars, that it expects yet another record year in 2007, beating the forecast of 1.4 million sales originally set for 2008. He said the company expects to make a pre-tax profit of £2.7 billion for 2006, with the final figure confirmed in March.
