It will be an ongoing process to lighten the heavy convertible to get the same performance as a hardtop.

I hope not...I have a good rapport with one of their staff whom I have never met. The staff claimed they're aware of it and is trying very hard to better themselves. I am always open to give another chance. Thanks for pointing it out though...this is the sort of feedback they should cherish as it’s priceless!

Yes it is heavier. But it’s not like you need an extreme diet or massive increase in horsepower to have equal performance.

I know (owner’s manual) that the (EU) M3 cabrio takes 0.1 second more 0-100 km/h (0-60mph).

I mean, it is what it is. There's really no need to buy anything from ECS unless your homie gives you a discount of some sort. There's a sticky post in that group at the very top which lists dozens of alternative vendors who have better customer experience reputations.

Default Re: ECS tuning

Recently ordered twice from ECS, First was a Dinan Supension that they shipped the wrong part and sent the correct part once notified. The shop I used spoke with them and they shipped new part right away and didn't require me to ship the wrong item back first. Second order was a Dinan CAI and Strut Tower Brace, both arrive directly from Dinan. ECS gave me 10% off of the listed Dinan price. Alternatively, I recently order several parts from Pelican and they shipped a Hood Insulation Pad that was wrong for my car and sent the new pad immediately as well. Allowing me to ship the wrong item back at my convenience.

Both companies sent me a pre paid shipping label for the returns.

Convertible is around 10% heavier. It will need 10% more power to equal the performance of a hardtop. 0-60 is often not a great reflection of power because traction is a factor. The quarter mile is a better indicator, or half mile, or the more common highway race from 60-120+ mph. The heavier convertible will be seeing the tail lights of the hard top. The heavier convertible would be more on par with a 2017 Honda Accord V6 or 2018+ Accord 2.0T, which run the quarter at 101 and 102 mph respectively.
