BMW 3-Series Convertible 330 Ci Sport 2d Auto (03) (2004/53)

BMW 3-Series Convertible 330 Ci Sport 2d Auto (03) (2004/53) - Owner Review

Very little. This is a fun car guaranteed to put a smile on your face. In summer the wind deflector means very little buffeting open topped even at motorway speeds. In winter a hard top turns it into a coupe and quite the prettiest of all 3 series.

BMW 3-Series Convertible (00-06)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I enjoy well made, quality, sporty cars.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
My brother would prefer a Mercedes. I'm waiting until I'm a lot older. My children have all owned BMWs although they have moved on to Audis. Did I say I also own a TT.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes. The whole experience has been a good one.

What are you likely to buy next?
That's a hard one. I'm not a fan of the next generation of BMWs. I don't appreciate the Chris Bangle Flameline designed cars. Maybe the new 3 series will produce an exciting coupe and convertible.

-

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Wonderful. Not as hard edged and sporty as my old 328i Sport but effortless, powerful and accurate on the road.

What's it like to park?
The park distance sensors make it relatively easy to park. Visibility is good and the dimensions of the car simple to judge.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Very little in 115,000 miles. The car has been used as a daily driver by my wife to/fro her office from delivery and is used for high days and continental holidays.

What's most practical about your car?
Very little. This is a fun car guaranteed to put a smile on your face. In summer the wind deflector means very little buffeting open topped even at motorway speeds. In winter a hard top turns it into a coupe and quite the prettiest of all 3 series.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
My wife has become a committed auto fan and wouldn't be without the heated seats. I love the hardtop, Bluetooth, cruise control and we both use the satnav.
