Mein Auto: 335i Convertible
Hello - New Member

Posted in the new member forum, but thought I'd say hi here too.

First time BMW owner here. Always loved the cars after my dad had a 325 convertible. Recently it was time to get rid of my '02 VW Passat and decided it was worth spending a little more to get something great. My wife and I share a car, so it had to be somewhat practical and have room for groceries, friends, etc. Really liked the idea of the hardtop convertible and the BMW was hands down the best of the various makes we tried.

We went with an '09 CPO 335i in space gray w/ the black dakota leather interior. One owner, just off a lease, and only 7,000 miles on it. Absolutely loving this car and have still had plenty of nice weather to have the top down in DC. Even with the top up, its fairly quiet - probably quieter than my Passat.

Below is a picture of the wife enjoying the car - my daily commuter is a WMATA metrobus - but at least I get to drive the BMW on the weekend.
