I just bought this car a couple of months ago.
The previous owner spent over one thousand dollars at a BMW dealer attempting to fix the convertible-after all-that is why you buy this model.
Although it does go up and down, it doesn't do it anywhere near as smooth as you would expect from a BMW.
I am still going back and forth with the dealer I bought it from to get it right.
Don't get me wrong-I LOVE the car_but I bought it for the convertible aspect and it is a very expensive and difficult thing to deal with.

This car is a thrill to drive. Even though it is six years old, it still looks and drives like a new car. The biggest thrill is with the top down. Very little wind in the front seat. All the great accesories are included with the car. Very well built and low maintenance car. Great gas mileage. This is my second BMW and it won't be the last. The car handles great and has good acceleration. The only draw back is there isn't much room in the back seat. This is a great car.

I HAVE HAD MANY NICE AUTOMOBILES AND
THIS IS MY FAVORITE BY FAR. I LOVE THE
PERFORMANCE AND HANDLING. IT MOVES WHEN
YOU NEED TO TO GET YOU IN AND OUT OF
TRAFFIC. I WOULD DEFINITELY DO THIS AGAIN.
I THINK THE STYLING IS GREAT ALSO BUT
THE HANDLING IS WONDERFUL.
BMW swaps out the four-cylinder engine in the 318 coupe and convertible for a 168-horsepower 2.5-liter inline six -- these cars become the 323is coupe and 323i convertible (why it's "323" and not "325," we'll never know). Meanwhile, the 318i sedan and 318ti hatchback continue on unchanged. All cars get standard side airbags this year, except the 318ti, on which they are optional.
