How about the BMW M3 convertible. Any particular reason for choosing a convertible, cause IMO a convertible is not for Indian conditions.

Abhinav one thing comes straight to the mind and thats M3 convertible.
The other choice could be the Volvo C70 but it would seem bland in comparision.

How about an Audi A4 or a Mercedes-Benz CLK? Frankly, most of the 4 seat convertibles hardly have space at the back.

A4? Does it come as a convertible. How much will a CLK convertible cost after import and all the duties.

Seems a good option. Hows the back space. Similar to the 3 series or more or less.

Is the space at the back better than a M3?

IMO the space at the back of 6 series is less than M3 however the looks of 6 Series is awesome and is a very good option indeed.
And the price of 80+ is in the budget itself.

BMW328/335 hard top convertible.

The M3 will be missing out on the luxury factor because it is quite hard edged. Besides the M3 is probably only soft top.
