Nothing beats top down driving during summer evenings.

Just saying

Bonus that it's a BMW 330

If you have a windscreen and heated seats, even up north, top down in the spring and fall rocks too

I have both, but most the time my daughter ( going on 6 ) is along for the ride, so no windscreen, but my wife loves the heated seats! I will be buying a heated blanket for my little one to keep her as toasty as possible for the soon to arrive chilly air

It is the best - my favorites are early morning with a little chill in the air, or in the evenings with the stars out...

All I'm missing is the windscreen... After that driving in Canada even at night should be no issue!

Summer + soft top = endless fun!!

Kidding, right?

A vert is a conVERTible, cabriolet, drop top, open air experience, décapotable...

IMO, the Ultimate Driving Experience

It's also a DHC (drop head coupe) from the Triumph days.

///Must be Rollin an ///M to get a +1

Just kidding,

top down, as long as its not raining is always a good thing.
Heater on
Windscreen in place
Windows up
Seat warmers on
All or any combination of the above to suit your comfort...

Was getting ready to sprinkle when I ran across this barn last night, glad it wasn't raining yet.

I was shopping for an M, but I am uummm... cost conscious? fiscally responsible? economical? My wife says cheap, but that seems like a harsh label. lol

That's a great picture!

Yeah, I too was debating getting an M car, but in the end the 330 covers 90% of my needs.

My go fast need will be solved with a project track car in the coming years. I've had fast cars all my life, so I really can appreciate the slow down and smell the roses the 330 gives me.

But sometimes I think about it and for a moment or 2 I regret it, but then I realize just how lucky I am to have what I have, so I appreciate it just a little more.

Totally get it...we are all blessed to be in verts. Just like to raz folks up a little once in a while, lord knows I took over four years of it in my two 325 Ci verts lol

Thanks for the compliments on the pic, the old man who has the farm, says many stop to ask about taking photos with his barn. He only asks that if we get a good one, if we drop one off for his 'wall'. Can't decide the first one or this one to give him.
