2000 BMW 3 Series 323Ci 2dr Convertible


Review

I've had the car for 5 years and 75,000 miles. In terms of maintenance and parts failures this car has been very very easy. Total invested in non routine maint: not more than $1,000, and considering what the AZ heat does to rubber components, that isn't bad! I love this little car, and based on the really low trade in value, I'm probably going to keep it for fun and get a new sedan. If you're looking for fun at a low cost, and the pricing on Edmunds is accurate, this is a great deal! My only complaint is this is a very heavy car for only 175hp under the hood. It doesn't accelerate fast, but handles great and feels comfortable even at excessive speeds (with the top down or up).


Favorite Features

It's a convertible in a very sunny place, need I say more?


Suggested Improvements

More power.

Review

I must say that the reliability is not as bad as some reviewers are saying. I bought my 2000 convertible in 2006 with 45000 miles. I now have 137000 miles and have only changed the oil regularly and just did the rear brake pads. I commute 100 miles a day for work and feel confidant this will get me there and home again in style. The car is fun to drive! Take care of it, and it should take care of you.


Favorite Features

Styling, handling, good gas mileage around 28 combined.


Suggested Improvements

Rear tires wear heavily on the inside. I hear this is normal for BMW.

Review

I bought it used with 75k miles and warranty until 100k. Have had only 1 minor problem with O2 sensor, covered by warranty. Very fun to drive, especially with top down. Didn't spend much on it, but everyone thinks I'm loaded because I drive a Beamer. No neck snapping acceleration, but slowing down for curves is a thing of the past. People still ooh and ahh over my 8 year old BMW.


Favorite Features

Road handling, fit and finish and luxury touches. Truly an "Ultimate Driving Machine".


Suggested Improvements

Radio display hard to read with top down.

This car is a wonderful machine to drive. I haven't owned this car for very long but so far it has proved its BMW name.


Favorite Features

Handles like its on rails. Convertible Top


Suggested Improvements

Electrical system. Had to replace seat adjustment controls & AM Radio made horrible noise whenever brake peddle was pressed. Both fixed. Repairs costly.

I traded in a 1999 Mercedes for this vehicle and would do it again in a heart beat. It is sporty, fun to drive and an excellent feeling car, easy maneuverablity and great on the eye.
