Um, I don't think the e92 has a "b" piller either so in fact there is no more protection than the e93. In the test pictures having a roof wouldn't have helped either as the damage was all around the middle and the top of the door and rear panel.

So if you think these tests were a concern on the e93 you would be foolish not to have the same concerns if you have an e92.
