Whats the main difference in the coupe vs convertible seats? Looking at upgrading to sport seats from a convertible and I have a coupe.

none.

if there's additional options on the seats (memory, heated, etc) there's just more plugs at the bottom... and obviously you wouldn't be able to adjust a power seat without the power seat option on your existing car...

While driving I've noticed that the passenger seats in the convertibles seem to attract more hot blondes.. weird right?

True. Rear seat is narrower in the vert because of the need to hold the folded up top mechanism. It will still hold two adults but they better be friendly.

Mine must be broken. Six years on and theyve all been brunettes.

Thought the boston leather material was different in the 'vert? Didn't BMW used to mark it as being cooler when exposed to direct sunlight than standard leather?
