Great car, but the sophistication of
the OBDII (Computer) makes for alot of
trouble with failed sensors. Also,
got a bum transmission... BMW is
standing behind all of this, I am just
tired of taking it to the shop (once
every other month!)
This is all it is said to be by the
car mags and more. It's a blast to
drive - it's fun even on short drives
to work. The space is practicle for
kids in the back - and they love to be
in it with the top down. Quality is
first rate - I'm surprised that even
after three years, there are no
rattles or squeaks - it is as tightly
put together as the first day.
There are not any drawbacks as far as
I'm concerned - except I wish BMW made
something the size of a Suburban for
the family car.
Picked up this car in Fort Lauderdale and drove back to New Hampshire. What a rush. Have had many cars and this is the best by far. Look forward to driving like never before. Had a number of people pull up to me on the highway and want to play and felt no urge to embarrass them, just kept driving with the top down and the tunes playing.
I have owned BMWs and other sports cars
before before but this is the most awesome car
I have ever driven. The handling is excellent.
The noise of the soft top is almost non
existent (no small thing if you have ever had a
convertible). If your if your children are 14
years old or less and your friends are small,
you will hear no complaints from the back
