I agree with you as well. I had an E36 '99 328ic for the last 4 years. I never had a hardtop but kept looking for a 'bargain' and couldn't find one. Now that I bought this E46 330ci & found the hardtop, I think I will enjoy the 'change' from summer/fall season to the winter/spring. Almost like having 2 different cars. It might be different if we lived further south where you can use the top down mode more but here in Western North Carolina it's a good option.
