For example, the new F10 M5 has seen some issues ranging from suspension issues, fuel pump (but that was a bad batch from their supplier), windshield wind noise, Valvetronic solenoid, and other drivetrain malfunctions.
This, enjoy the f30. And think about it more.
What's the advantage over the coupe with kids in the equation? The coupe still has room for car seats. A convertible would be the easiest to fit kiddos in, with the top down you have all the room you could want.
