1-series Convertible wins best convertible in Motorweek Drivers' Choice Award 09

As featured on homepage.

Best Convertible - 1 Series

For open-air exhilaration, our choice for best convertible is the BMW 1-Series Convertible. While BMW's smallest series, its big personality includes all the prowess, safety, and innovation BMW is known for. We welcomed its no-nonsense, power soft-top with a glass backlight, that can be raised or lowered in 22 seconds—even while moving. Wind buffeting is virtually non-existent. Power comes from the same 6-cylinder engines found in the 3-Series, while the car's rigid platform offers a very nimble drive. It's the perfect car for sun worshippers and driving enthusiasts alike.

Congrats to all the vert owners!

Sorry if this is a repost -- realized the show that aired today could have been a repeat. However searched forum but found no threads on the subject.

Nice, but they also picked the A5/S5 as sport coupe of the year. Coupe of the year, maybe, but sporty it aint.
