My Ride: 2001 BMW 330Ci Vert
New to BMW bought 2001 330Ci Vert -luv it more each day!

What a great story! I was actually in a Toyota Dealership looking for a car for my daughter when I started talking to a nice older gentleman trading in his Steel Blue Metallic 2001 330Ci Convertible with Nav and 110,000 miles for a Prius (polar opposite). I always dreamed of buying one of these but it was just never "practical". Moments later, I was outside looking it over and it was a beauty! We exchanged contact info and I was online all night researching, researching and researching. All signs said I had to buy it so the next day I pulled the trigger and bought it for $6,500. It was risky becuase I only decided based on my visual inspection and test drive with no mechanic. I've put in about $3,000, fixed a few little things myself and now everything is operational and it runs great! In the end, I probably could have bought one with no repairs r maintenance items needed with similar mileage, but I would have paid at least $1,500+ more. So I am drunk with love for this machine and thrilled to have found this forum! Please chime in on what I paid, how long this beauty will last with great care, or anything else, thanks!

My Ride: 2001 330Ci
Hey, I'm a newby, too, and I just bought a 2001 330Ci coupe with about the same miles on it, but I paid about $2000 more. Looks like you got a great deal on yours. I've only had mine about a week, so I haven't done too much to it except buy some new tires for the rear, but I'm looking forward to fixing all the (hopefully) little things that I know I'm going to find wrong. I really like mine, too, and I expect to have a long and pleasant relationship with this car. Good luck with your ragtop.
