What Car? says

5 out of 5 stars

For The 3 Series convertible drives superbly and there’s hardly any body shake

Against The extra body stiffening adds a considerable amount of weight, restricting the performance

Verdict It's good to drive, desirable, roomy, comfortable and loses value slowly

Go for… 320Ci SE

Avoid… 318 Ci SE

BMW 3 Series Convertible
  • 1. Tracking on Sport models is sensitive and easily knocks out of true
  • 2. Go for a model with a six-cylinder petrol engine, a 320i, 325i or 330i
  • 3. The driving position is spot-on and the positioning of the controls is A1, too
  • 4. The rear seats are strictly for two, rather than three people
  • 5. The boot space is reduced once you've dropped the electrically operated roof
