Make sure the top works fine, but you never know. My power top hydraulic system failed 10 months after I bought mine. It is a complicated system and costs $$$ to fix. If possible, get an extended warranty by BMW only.

Manual 325 or 330 is fine. Auto 330 at least.
The vert's are fairly heavy, so I wouldn't get a 325 with automatic unless you're just into boulevard cruising. Cough up $30k and just get a 330 ZHP convertible!
