There where a total of 786 E30 M3 convetibles built each with the 195 2.3L engine. There is only one known convertible where BMW had put themselves the Evo II enginen to increase bhp from 195 to 215.

I have a coupe and my brother the convertible. The convertible is a very nice looking car especially when the roof is down however because of the added weight to support no roof the coupe is much faster and lighter and feels alot better to drive. If you plan on doing track days then a coupe would be better.

Hope this helps
