BMW 3 Series Convertible - £8k-£11k: Best cheap convertibles

320i SE (2011/60 reg, 74k miles)

Best cheap convertibles - BMW 3 Series

 

Convertibles are all about being seen, so don’t expect the open-top 3 Series to deliver the kind of sharp handling that you get from the rest of the range.

The car features a three-piece aluminium folding metal roof, which provides the security and refinement of the 3 Series Coupé when it’s in place, and folds in a leisurely 23 seconds. The downside is that the mechanism adds a lot of weight, so go for the 320i for acceptable performance and decent running costs.
