"I have owned this car for 18 months and it is a joy to drive. I was shopping for a convertible and the 1 series really fit the bill. The car even had a tweed black and silver thread top. It is an eye catcher, and a lot of people think it is a $80k car - wrong ! Many of the professional reviewers complain about the. 1 convertible being expensive compared to the 3 convertible. Their thought that the 3 was not much more. My 1 had a sticker of $55k and the 3 would have been $67k. I specked it with the same options, in other words the same car in a 3 is $12k more. so the professional reviewers are wrong. The car has low profile run flat tires, I changed to Michelin non run flat tires and the car is much better and the tires are half the price. Thus far I am very happy with this car, it is pretty, comfortable, drives well and gets attention. What more could you ask for !"

"i bought this vehicle wanting something a bit bigger than my miata and more comftorable, i looked for about 6 months to find just the right one and found an 08 with all the possible upgrades you can get including navigation, cold weather package, adaptive headlights and all those goodies. i drive this car everyday and has given me no issues other than a water pump. occasionally ill drive it hard and responds amazingly, the power is amazing and so is the handling. Its truly a drivers car! The only thing i think people might not like it the rear seats, not very spacious if you have a family but if your like me (21) and don't really carry people around all the time its an amazing vehicle. Exceeded all my expectations i had. The car is also very easy to work on as long as you have some "mechanical" experience."

"This car does not score a 10 in any category but it also never falls below a 7 or 8 in any category. It is a perfect daily driver if you're not regularly hauling more than 2 people. The turbo six cylinder has nice low end torque and the ergonomics make for a very comfortable car for those of average size."
