BMW 3-Series Convertible (93-00)

Value

4 out of 5

Great residual values

Costs

3 out of 5

When things run well, great... However, expect your wallet to lighten when you walk in to the BMW dealership, fuel costs I find quite good on the 318i about 380 miles on a tank

Performance

2 out of 5

Heavy car needs bigger lump under the bonnet, however a great pose!

Reliability

5 out of 5

Never had a problem really, except remote locking, trailing arm bushes, and a few other bits needed, will be brilliant for the next 5 years

Well it is a BMW convertible

Comfort

3 out of 5

Mine is 7 years old only 51K though and I find the seats uncomfortable, but then again i'm a fatter than average Joe

Security

2 out of 5

Mmmm maybe unfair though I was broken in and had my hard top stolen...like £6.95 damage to the handle and £2000 for a new roof

Service

2 out of 5

I used Specialist Cars Luton... In my opinion ,because it wasn't a new car every year the service i got probably match Daewoo... sorry Daewoo, no offence meant
