Review

This is actually my first car, and I love it. It's fun, and has been reliable. The car is quick, and can corner great. The only bad thing is the cup holder, which is the only thing in suggested improvements.

The bits are a bit expensive, such as the dash lights. This isn't just great because it's my first car, one of the cars in the house is much faster and is for wheel drive.

Not a whole not of trunk space, but I can fit my guitar in it, and really anything I need to fit in it. The back seats also lack a bit of leg room.

Nothing I can say is bad about this car, so I do recommend this.


Best Features

Convertible top obviously It's fun, and corners well I like walking up and seeing the car.


Worst Features

The one and only suggestion is to switch out the cup holder for something else. This is literally the worst cup holder ever in the universe. The up holder is to small for anything to go in it, and not just by U.S. standards. Anything that you put in it will fly out in the corners, so the only drink you can safely have in it has to be bottled. Not only can the cup holder not fit any drinks in it, if there is a drink in it, it gets in the way of shifting. You can't shift without hitting whatever is in the cup holder. All in all, if you can find something to replace the cup holder, then do so.

Review

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.


Best Features

It sticks to the ground like a great sports car.


Worst Features

COULD USE A GLASS BACK WINDOW

Review

Found this car to need repairs on an
every other month basis. Repairs on
this car are very expensive so be
ready. Get one thing fixed and
something else goes out. Will not buy
another BMW. I'm back to an easy to
repair Mustang.


Best Features

Convertebles are fun to drive.


Worst Features

Make care more dependable.

Review

This is my 1st BMW and I will always
own a BMW from this point on. The car
has features than are even listed. If
you own or buying a BMW you have to
read the manual. If I didn't I wouldn't
know so many things the car does for
me. It sticks to the ground like glue.
The electronic governer doesnt allow
you to go faster than 147 MPH. People
asked where I get it that fast in
Chicago. It doesn't take long and U
don't feel it.
If you are thinking about buying one DO
IT!!! Drop that top and fly... HK
Stereo upgrade a must!!


Best Features

ACS+T (automatic stability control + Traction controll), Speed sensative braking system, roll over protection & roll bar feature), built in sub woofer, heated door locks+Mirrors+WW=sprayers&blower rear defrost,program seats 2 heat b4 U even get to the car. Wipers and MPH go 2gether


Worst Features

Center Council should have arm rest. U can buy an after market to match int.
