I'll own this car forever
By drandy on


1997 BMW 3 Series 328i 2dr Convertible


I bought my 328 convertible in '99 with 11k miles, loved it for 10 years, sold it to a needy college kid for two years, and bought it back 18 months ago.
With 125k miles on it, the car is still a delight to drive.
Soft top is still in good shape, mechanicals are still rock solid, drive is a delight.
I use a local German car specialty shop that is much less expensive than a dealership, so brakes, hoses, etc., aren't as expensive as they might be. With classic good looks and wonderful driving behavior, this car typifies, "the Ultimate Driving Machine" - I'm a BMW-owner for life.
If you need to choose between a newer non-beemer or an older beemer, go with the beemer.
You won't regret it!
