2004 BMW 3 Series Convertible 330Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Best all round performance and fun for the money. Would like more HP, but absolutely fun everytime you are behind the wheel. Pluses - handling, style, fun factor. Minuses - don't like the stereo, heater display washes out in sun, some go out in cold. Seats wearing prematurely driver side. Pricey extras like CD changer which is in trunk, alarm system an option. Convertible top not latched, warning light too low in vehicle, too small.


Favorite Features

Heated seats, stereo controls on steering wheel. Driving position very comfortable. Ease opening closing top. Solid feel of the vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

Stereo/heater display needs improvement. Cup holders (yes even in a Bimmer) should be improved. CD in dash not trunk.

2004 BMW 3 Series Convertible 325Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Reasonable fun to drive. Interior design/style could be nicer for this price point. Window and doors have problems. Interior buttons break.


Favorite Features

Exterior design. Convertible.


Suggested Improvements

Reduce incidents of repair. Improve quality of buttons, door mechanisms and window funtion. AC should stay on air type selected.

2004 BMW 3 Series Convertible 330Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I fell in love with the look, performance, and premium features of this car. I've owned it for 2.5 years and it has been at the dealer for repairs about 12 times. No major problems but problems nonetheless that require constant repairs. Defective battery, leaking headlight washer system, broken trunk lock, rattling convertible top, squeeky window, the list goes on and on. I bought this car and babied it, planning to keep it forever. I'm not planning to dump it as I'm sure once the warranty is out I will be getting killed on repair bills. I'll never buy another BMW.


Favorite Features

Adaptive headlamps. Navigation. Fully automatic convertible top.


Suggested Improvements

Quality! Quality!

Review

We purchased this 2004 330ci with sport package as a factory car with 3,100 miles in Sept.05. As it was explained to us, the car had never been titled before (which proved true) and was basically NEW, and paid 44k instead of original 54k. Not bad! We are absolutely in love with this car. Every feature, line, material used, and charecteristic of this car is phenomenal. I can't imagine what the next convertible will bring, as it seems hard to top perfection.


Favorite Features

Acceleration, exhaust note, remote top- down from key fob, xenon headlights, sport package seats and rims.


Suggested Improvements

Steering wheel needs to telescope out closer to the driver. No multi-disk in- dash changer?!?! Optional alarm system is ABSURD for a luxury auto with a sticker price over 50k!!!!

Review

Have owned BMW 3 series convertibles for almost 10 years and this thing just gets better with each new series. Fun to drive, getting better traction control each time with nicer firm ride, appointments and power with each upgrade. Can't imagine owning another convert. and I have driven most. Well, maybe the 6 series.


Favorite Features

Better traction control, Zenon headlights, on steering wheel controls and easier rear seat entry, expandable trunk space with top up, improved head room.


Suggested Improvements

More adaptable technology link up for business communication. Keep up the improvements and you will have me back again.
