BMW 3-Series Convertible 330d M Sport 2d Auto (2008/08) - Owner Review

The drive is fantastic, road holding etc can't be faulted. Was able to take 1 X son to university complete with all kit and get it all in - boot space is larger than some say if you use it properly. (Obviously you cant take the roof down if you fill the boot!). Managed to achieve over 40MPG on a moterway run @ 70 - 80 mph.

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I don't really know!

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Friends and family love it!

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, most certainly - it puts a smile on my face just looking at it!!

What are you likely to buy next?
I will probably go for another BMW - you'd be hard pushed to beat the quality and overall feel of the cars.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£16,000

When did you buy the car?
August 2013

Did you get a good deal and why?
I paid what the dealer wanted because it was the only car (seriously) with the spec I wanted. I did try the BMW network but they could not find a car similar.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Previously owned a BMW, liked the quality and overall feel of the car. Convertible looks great with the roof up or down, enough space for 2 plus occasional other passengers.

What was the dealer like?
Good, efficient.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Fantastic! Amazing pull and road holding. Can be heavy on fuel if your right root is heavy, otherwise you can get over 40 to the gallon which gives a range of nearly 600 miles.

What's it like to park?
No problem at all - parking sensors are great and good steering lock allows you to get into the tightest places.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Had a cracked wheel three weeks after purchase. Went to BMW who put in a claim on my behalf and refunded me the cost of the wheel despite the car being 5 years old.

What's most practical about your car?
The drive is fantastic, road holding etc can't be faulted. Was able to take 1 X son to university complete with all kit and get it all in - boot space is larger than some say if you use it properly. (Obviously you cant take the roof down if you fill the boot!). Managed to achieve over 40MPG on a moterway run @ 70 - 80 mph.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Obviously the roof is great - seats are really good, idrive has taken some criticism but for me is great.
