Used BMW 3-Series Convertible (1993 - 2000) Review

Review by Parkers on

Blueprint for the smaller executive convertible car in the '90s, combining quality and driver appeal from the 318i right up to the exhilarating M3. It does not disappoint in any key areas, and its desirable image is holding up well despite being replaced.

Blueprint for the smaller executive convertible car in the '90s, combining quality and driver appeal from the 318i right up to the exhilarating M3. It does not disappoint in any key areas, and its desirable image is holding up well despite being replaced. It's a real driving machine that's still in demand, so prices remain high.
