BMW 3-Series Convertible 330 Cd SE 2d (2007/07) - Owner Review

Believe it or not, it gets used as a family car. I has a good boot, space for two small children and it has a hardtop for the winter

BMW 3-Series Convertible (00-06)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I have no imagination? (It's a BMW - yawn) That I am mad? (It's a diesel convertible). That I love my wife? (I tell myself I bought it for her).

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Don't care. I like cars and I buy them for me (on the pretence that they are for my wife). Nuts to everyone else.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would, but I can't: It's not made anymore, and anyway, I am poor now.

What are you likely to buy next?
She would like a Mini Cooper S next time.

Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
New

What price did you pay?
-

When did you buy the car?
May 2007

Did you get a good deal and why?
The last E46 Cabrio in Italy. I got a HUGE HUGE HUGE discount AND two years insurance and 60.000 miles maintanence thrown in.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I bought it for my wife who had a 318Ci Cabrio and wanted a bit more ooomph. I wanted a diesel to save some money (diesel costs less than petrol here in Italy)

What was the dealer like?
It's the fourth car I have bought from them, every sale is preceeded by weeks of enjoyable camel trading. The post sales service is always shocking, but they are getting better.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
One word: Heavy. A bit of a truck, actually.

What's it like to park?
Roof off, a cinch. Roof on, pretty easy. It has a short boot, the nose is easy to judge.

Living with it

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Probably the active Xenon lights
