I've now had this convertible BMW for 5 years and it's been a highlight of my driving days. I bought it used and still under warranty, which came in handy when the convertible straps needed replacing. I understand that happens at about 30K miles. If I had not grown up with two mechanic brothers working on Detroit vehicles, I would have had a chance to drive a BMW sooner. There is a reason why it's the Ultimate Driving Machine. Some folks may not like the fact that the control panel tells you when to do what, but it's a great help for me.
Much better gas mileage than expected. Superb handling on curves. Convertibles rule! Just a sexy looking car.
Sure a convertible doesn't muffle road noise as well, but you know if you were meant to have one. We've got two!
