Pros: "driving, ride, price used. great deal"

Cons: "maintenance once a year"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I still get a smile driving this car. It takes more maintenance than my last 90 325is coupe and doesn't handle as well over 90 but Texas is about the only place to drive over 90. I've had this for 60K7yrs has 130k I remodeled it after I received it, just off warranty. Put $3000 first year in parts and mostly my labor. It has been coast to coast twice. A drivers car and for someone with deep pockets or works on their car as I do.Maintenance is key. Disabled so love my auto trans which was rebuilt at 65K and I serviced at 85K. I am looking for another BMW next car. 1-3 years when this one dies or I save some money? Still runs like new."

Pros: "Reliable motor"

Cons: "Expensive to fix, it's German made, not cheap!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"I have owned two 325i BMW convertibles. The first one was a 2003 (in photo) and I totaled it and walked away without a scratch. My second one is a 2005. If you want a safe and reliable little convertible, this is a good one to own! It has a couple of known issues, the top can stop working and the motor can cost upwards of $1500 to fix with labor. The car can have issues with exhaust leaks which doesn't make it drive any different, it just makes it a pain in the butt to smog. I fixed a few other little things like the power steering broke once but other than that, this car has been a good car."

Pros: "Fun and sporty to drive"

Cons: "low bumpers in front"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The 330i convertible is a fun car to drive. It has great get up and go and is easy to park. The top is easy to put up and down with a push of a button. It has the M sport package which looks great, but the front bumper is so low, it scrapes going in or out of driveways or hits parking bumpers! That's the only negative. Mine has over 125, 000 miles and is going strong. BMW-is the Ultimate Driving Machine!"
