Rumor Mill: E93 Cabrio: Lets Play A Game...

Hey folks,

So strange thing happened recently. I was bored on a plane ride and looking at the recent spy shots of the E93 Cabrio when I noticed something odd. As luck would happen a relable source (who should not post the answer here ) actually mentioned it as a fact a couple of days later.

So any guesses to what is hiding in this picture? I'll give you a hint:
"What you see is not always what you get"

If no one guesses it tonight, I'll post a second clue, followed by the answer tomorrow. I think you guys will be truly surprised.

EDIT: The riddle was figured out by mkoesel on the second page. If the glass version makes production it will have a panaromic glass roof on both roof panels!!!

I know the picture is old, what I am saying is there something in that picture that I don't think anyone noticed before and still hasn't noticed

It's a manual? and there's something odd to the right of the shifter, no idea what it is. Maybe a computer they're using.

It is a manual, and that computer thing is for testing. But still not it

Kidding. No idea actually. One thing that is weird is that some of the pictures of the E93 roof, such as this one, have a matte outer border surrounding a glossy inner area. I've seen discussions that claim this is a sunroof, but it does not appear to me that it is.

So, hmmm, maybe this is what you are referring to in your post? But if not a sunroof, then what the heck is it? I just assumed it was a result of rough prototype parts.

hardtop convertable with chrome mirror cover? and no multi function key on the steering wheel? missing a sexy lady in the car? a yellow button on the left alum trim? Oh, damn, i know what now. they still make SG color for E93? No 5 point position seatbelt? LOL. Looks like when the door open, the side mirror doesn't move. it stay the same as the door close.

I got it. there's an "eject the bitch button" ..... then the glass roof pops open and she flys out the top! ...way cool

no worries though, it's also designed so that she always lands on her feet.
