If we had to pick an MVP in the car blog space this week, it'd likely be Leftlane News, capping a solid showing by posting a bunch of AutoBild spec images of the upcoming BMW 3-Series (E92) coupe and retractable-hardtop convertible. We're guessing the shots are in-house renderings, though AuBi's cadre of spies can be clever, so we'll give them the benefit of the doubt in this case. Still, there's still no confirmation of a rumor the hardtop-convertible will be the only non-M coupe offered, while the M3 will get a proper hardtop.
