I wanted one until I saw there was no trunk space with the roof down (and I mean NO SPACE) so I ordered an M Roadster instead. Surprisingly, I can fit my golf bag and a suitcase in the roadster and not in the new 3 vert. IMHO, the new 3 vert is a bad design on BMW'S part, it just doesn't make any sense. They should have kept the soft top as an option.

Anyone know why BMW decided on a hardtop convertible instead of a soft top?

Demand from consumers showed that they wanted hardtop. BMW made a light weight hardtop as compared to competition so as not to compromise performance.

I don't think the creases look that bad. You can't have no creases+hardtop+BMW performance and handling+room in trunk. Compromises: rather have creases for lightweight hardtop and not compromise handling.

Have you driven one with hardtop?

Yes I have, drove one at the Ultimate Drive. Inside looked okay, outside the difference in appearance was obvious.
