Headroom is ok - might be better in the convertible than the coupe. But legroom is very limited and not usable for grownups unless the front passenger adjust the seat. If so, both persons will sit uncomfortably. For a short ride it works.

Generally I will say that the rear seats are usable only for kids smaller than 160 cm.

It will be interesting for me if you can take a picture when a grown up is in the back of the car.

I`m very interested in the convertible version but there is only a coupe at my dealer.

I would offer that the back seat confirms the role of the 6 as a two place coupe. For briefcases, flowers, a sport coat, the back seat of the 6 does fine. Like with E24 and E63, the F13's backseat is for transporting things, not people.

Most seat adjustments for adults in the front seat preclude legs in the backseat.

If you are going to be carrying humans in the backseat, think about the four door Gran Coudan.

My idea is to change my E93 to F13.

The E93 backseat is OK for traveling in close distances and I was hoping the F13 would be better.

I agree with GreyCoupe.
I have not tried the E93 (cabriolet), but there is actually more space in the rear of the E92 (coupe) than in the F12/F13.
Let your backseaters take a taxi
Hope you will sort this out. Good luck whatever your decision will be.
