Fun, but totally impractical
By Debbie on


2006 BMW 3 Series 330Ci 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I bought my 330Ci convertible in March of this year and traded it in September. Part of the reason was a chance to own my "dream" car and an inability to justify owning two convertibles, but part of it was the sheer impracticality of the car. We couldn't fit two carry-on suitcases and two backpacks in the trunk, no one could comfortably ride in the back seat, there is very little storage space inside the vehicle and almost none that is secure if you leave the top down. The tires cost $355 EACH and apparently only last 8,000-10,000 miles - an added cost no one tells you about. The car was already recalled with a problem within 6 months. All in all it was fun to drive, but not worth it.

Best Features

It truly is a joy to drive.

Worst Features

More storage - and more secure storage - inside the car. Disclosure of the true "added" costs of owning the car.
