2008 BMW 3 Series Convertible 335i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

First BMW and we wish we had purchased one sooner. This is a great car with no glaring weaknesses. I'm confused about the reviews on the trunk space. We can put a medium size (larger than carry on) suitcase and my wife's makeup case and other odds and ends under the "top down" space divider with no problem. More than enough space for a long weekend for 2. If we went with soft sided luggage, it would be even better. We have Nav, Cold Weather, Premium, Sport and Comfort access packages. In today's world, Sirius, iPod and windblocker should come standard. This is our only complaint with BMW being so cheesy in this price range.


Best Features

Top operation, performance, handling and paint quality. Stereo is great even with top down on the freeway.


Worst Features

Better looking wheels, dressier brake callipers. Make sat radio and charging iPod controller standard.

2008 BMW 3 Series Convertible 335i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

After owning 4 previous BMWs including my most recent, a fully loaded 06 530i, I was a bit hesitant in going back to a 3 series. Not any longer! They have substantially upgraded the 3s and with the premium, sport and navi system which I opted for, I do not even remotely miss my 5. This car has so much power and is extremely fun to drive! I love it! The retractable hardtop is a show stopper everywhere I go. Even with the top up, the car is amazing. Very quiet while driving, even at interstate speed! My only complaint is the exhaust note. It sort of sounds like one of the cars from "The Fast and Furious." Not exactly the sound I expected from a luxury convertible.


Best Features

The iPod USB adapter and my navigation system. The upgrades they made to the Navi with real time traffic and restaurant guides is really nice.


Worst Features

Tone down the loud exhaust note. Find a way to have a bit more trunk space. Groceries are tough to fit in there, but in all fairness, this is not a car one buys to go shopping in. Its a car for FUN!

2008 BMW 3 Series Convertible 328i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Traded up from previous 04 Saab. Car is best on open road and takes turns like on rails. car not best for city commuting, does not like to go slow and has slow idle speed. Top down car stays toasty with great heat. Pretty soon see how cool it stays with AC on and top down. Did not get sport package and have no harsh ride, think it is the sport tires rather than run-flats that does gives stiff ride.


Best Features

Styling, quiet ride, handling, comfort, sound system.


Worst Features

More interior room for stuff. Bigger glove compartment, could not even fit owners manual in it!

Review

This was my birthday present to myself, I traded in my Z3 that I had planned to keep forever and nearly did. But for my age 2 cars 1 for fun and 1 for practical use doesn't work any longer. This hardtop convertible is the ultimate car for a split personallity girl like me. Practical with room for the groceries or friend, but a joy when the weather comes up right and you want to run to the hills with the wind in your hair.


Best Features

Retractible hard top roof.

Review

This is our family's first BMW, and what a terrific car it is. Ours is Blk/Blk, with the manual and sport package. After driving it I can say that this convertible is one of the best handling cars I have ever driven. Taking a winding road immediately puts a smile on your face as you take the corners and row through the gears. The top operation is amazing and when it is up not only does it not look like a convertible, but it also has a very quiet interior that is free of rattles and wind noise associated with convertible tops. The interior is very decadent with very rich leather over all surfaces. This is a true 4 season car that is absolutely gorgeous top up or down. Great purchase!


Best Features

Wonderous turbo engine!! Always has power and torque on demand even in 6th gear. Great tranny! Handles like a dream. Rich interior. Room for 4. Hardtop makes owning a convertible in Oregon possible. Sport seats that hug you tight. Great heater and htd. seats for top down weather in the 50s.


Worst Features

The top does severely eat up trunk space when it is down, and even when it is up there isn't tons to write home about. It would be nice to operate the top at low speeds instead of having to be stopped. Other than that, perfect car!
