Unlike Mr. Floraday, I was blessed with perfect weather during my short time with the M Roadster; the kind of weather that convertible owners dream about. Needless to say, I didn't do any top up driving in the M but my top down experience was top-notch. Even though this car is engineered to be driven at nine tenths, it is just as competent at two tenths. The engine is remarkably smooth and eager and the shifter is perfectly placed. The cabin is surprisingly tight even for someone of my small stature, which is only exacerbated by the heavily bolstered seats. This is not to say, though, that I don't like the seats. They are supremely comfortable and those bolsters do a great job of keeping you planted when the road gets curvy.
