2002 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


I am very impressed with the sound
insulation in the car. A previous 911
cab owner and swearing I would never
buy another convertible because of
noise, this car converted me back. A
daily driver (that now sits next to a
911 coupe) has similar handling and
performance characteristics, simply
without the hp. I offers huge fun
factor - especially with the top down,
but the wind deflector is a must for
comfortable ride and therefore not
that rear passenger friendly.

Best Features

Handling. The stiff, low body roll, German performance like no other. Would also recommend the Dinan engine performance upgrade. It's not the extra hp that makes the difference, it's the throttle response - BIG improvement and even more fun. (Even in the auto-sport mode!)

Worst Features

Brake dust, brake dust, brake dust. I was used to some with the Porsche, but this is far worse and much more annoying.
