BMW 3-Series Convertible (93-00)

Value

3 out of 5

Worth paying for the image and driving thrill, but little else.

Costs

1 out of 5

Very pricey. If anything electric goes it's going to mean a trip to the unhelful dealers and they'll milk you for every penny!

Driving

3 out of 5

Ok as long as you avoid bumps.

Performance

4 out of 5

Fast as expected auto is useful as you can use both hands to concentrate on the steering especially when you've got you're foot down.

Reliability

3 out of 5

Beware on models around this age if the ECU (electronic control unit)-the brain of the car, goes you're looking at £1300 plus to get it repaired and really only the dealers can fix it. Disappointing reliability for a german built car.

Image

5 out of 5

Beautiful looking car with the roof up or down. Few cars look better especially if you have the M3 kit. You're a source of envy of others in the summer.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Despite the sports seats, poor suspension,watch out for the bumps could be a rocky ride.

Security

BMW central locking alarm which also closes all the windows when they are down.

Service

1 out of 5

V. poor. Had to take car back 4 times to dealers to fix ECU even then had to return as they'd put in a faulty one...very unhelpful people.
