This car is great, my mum has one and she loves it!
The Car Externally:
The car comes with a soft top roof, depending on what colour car you have it has roof to match that colour. The roof should not put up whilst driving as we all know but it does come in handy that the roof goes up fairly quickly! The one problem is, we find the tyres for this particular model are quite expensive to have replaced ranging from around 500£ for decent tyres. Services cost the same as they usually do and i recommend going to another workshop than BMW if you have any paintwork problems. The tyres lasted for around 8 months travelling 60 miles per day... Boot space is great and as you can see 325ci in normal terms is fast! Engine size is great and ours is 2litre.
The car is fitted with radio/CD Player, heated seats in the front, electric movements for the front two seats, decent size glove box, leather or material whichever takes your fancy...Speed-o-meter lit up with orange light, controls on the steering wheel for stereo, horn, lights etc..
To get a second hand BMW 325CI convertible nowadays with a 54 plate, the price would range from 16,000 to 20,000£. The car is not very economical which its big engine size and if you often get stuck in traffic this is probably not the car for you as it would cost a bomb! I know this car on finance costs around 500£ a month which includes insurance which is fairly reasonable and that is from the BMW garage itself.
It provides a smooth run on motorways and country roads and holds the roads amazingly around the bends!! Advantages of this car is that it has power, which is handy for getting out of junctions, on roundabouts etc.. Also, there is a sport mode on it which you can use on a straight road and its awesome!! Also, The car is fitted with a parking sensor!!Obviously, the main plus is that it is convertible so on a hot summers day you can let the wind blow in your hair!!
Disadvantages of this car have probably got to be that there is a new model out now and this could be going out of fashion? It has been around for quite a while so MOT cost will be in order...
Great car from short and long journeys, country roads and motorways!!!
Love it, definitely worth considering.
