For your convertible, you will need either convertible or touring suspension, unless it's an M3 convertible, in which case, you will need M3 convertible suspension. Neither coupe, or saloon suspension will work on a convertible, because of the excess weight of the roof. As the touring also has extra roof, it shares the suspension with non ///M convertibles.

Please try using the search function, it's very usefull.

When i bought coilovers for my convertible, there were listed for more models including coupe.didnt have any problems.
Original springs might be stiffer for a convertible than a coupe.
Better of making few calls and find out for sure.
Coilovers differ as well.
