- Great looks, smooth Steptronic automatic transmission, powerful engine
- I-Pod is temperamental, no other cons
My wife and I picked up the 328i convertible in Munich in June taking advantage of the European Delivery Program, a very pleasant experience, well oranized and highly recommendable if you plan on traveling through Europe. And it saves $4,500 off the MSRP. We drove the car over 11 Alpine passes in Austria, Italy, France and Switzerland in two weeks (1,750 miles). The most thrilling experience was the drive up the Stilfser Joch in northern Italy with its 48 hairpin curves. The car's handling was just outstanding and the Steptronic feature performed flawlessly. The engine's power was more than ample, zooming by other cars and busses on steep mountain roads even in 10,000 ft. altitude, or on the Autobahn at 130mph.
With the top down the trunkspace was OK for one big suitcase and smaller bags for camera etc . A second suitcase was stored on the backseat with the backrest in the down position to protect the leather seat. When we parked in questionable urban areas, we closed the top in 22 seconds and put the second suitcase also in the trunk. No big deal.
We dropped off the car in Zurich and received it in Chicago 5-1/2 weeks later.
The car's mileage is now 8,000 and except for a new I-Pod module I experienced no other trouble and enjoy driving this car every day.
This is my fifth BMW and replaces a 1998 convertible 328i, which I drove without major repairs for 120,000 miles.
After a great summer, too bad winter is coming to Chicago.
