2007 BMW 3 Series 328i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Just bought this car 10 days ago and chose it over a 2006 Corvette LT3 convertible. Styling is conservatively aggressive and should be appealing for a long time. Engine is really strong and I'm enjoying using the paddle shifters. Highest quality interior of any 3 I've ever had and this is my fifth one. More technology in this car than I will ever use, but it's fun to have it. Hard to believe but this car listed for over $60K and I got it for approximately two-thirds of that. My first service experience was pleasant and I'm a big fan of BMW's comprehensive service for the first four years or 50,000 miles.
Watching the show as the top disappears into the trunk. Handling that is best in class. Overall quality, especially of the interior. A sound system that is nearly professional quality. Paddle shifters, nav system, twin turbos, etc.
Storage space is limited. As everyone else says the cup holders are out of sync with the rest of the design features.
