2008 BMW 3 Series 328i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Purchase went smooth, did my homework, knew what i wanted. The most impressive thing about the car is the immediate torque gratification, and the amount of thought they put into the engineering aspects of the car - every aspect. I have still yet to find anything I dislike about the design and it has been 6 months! I absolutely love everything about it. One of those purchases that works out be more satisfying than anticipated long after. Not a cheap car, but a bargain for what you get.
The iDrive is awesome. I figured out how to use it on my first drive home, never had to open a manual. If you can work a blackberry and a GPS, this will be a breeze. Convertible.
The only think I would improve would be to not make the side mirrors so cheesy. They are thin plastic and tend to want to come off as only held on by a clip or two. Had to replace one of them. At least they are replaceable but you have to get them custom painted. So $150 to replace.
