There are new and redesigned cars coming out all the time. But these look so enticing you should consider holding off on other purchases until you've had a chance to check them out. Working with Jack Nerad of Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com and Karl Brauer of Edmunds.com, we've selected 10 that might well be worth the wait.
BMW 3-series convertible

BMW 3-series convertible
Expected release: March 2007
The body remains the same, but BMW offers, for the first time, a hard convertible top. Hard-top convertibles have become increasingly popular because they offer the top-down fun of a convertible with the quietness and security of a hard roof when the top is up.

The 3-series' three-piece steel top will open or close in about 20 seconds, the company says. When the roof is up, the "Hofmeister kink," a traditional BMW design cue, is still there around the rear side windows.

The car is expected to cost a little over $40,000.
