Thanks ... basically was just thinking about buying a second hand BMW series 1 cabriolet & just wondered if anyone had any thoughts? Good idea or not? Just wanted something sexy & fun but not too impractical!


You can certainly drive it on a daily basis; fairly nimble and quick without being punishing over bad pavement. Just be advised that you will spend more for routine maintenance, and there is very little of that labor that you will be able to do yourself. BMW has taken away the access to much of those processes.


I guess a good question would be: could your budget handle an unexpected ~$1000 repair bill? It's more likely with the 1 Series than some mainstream-branded sedan of similar age.

Thank you for that ... certainly food for thought!
