Great car for the money if purchased used.
I bought this used for 15000 at 16 years old and 55000 miles driven. It drives great! All works, even the top with the wiggle the switch on drivers rear maneuver, as presented on the BMW Blog. Has hard acceleration at any speed, definitely, the V8 makes a difference. Real comfortable more so than my 03 Mercedes SL500. Easy to get in and out. The only downfall on the whole vehicle is the extended truck lid for an integrated spoiler? I guess. Other than that a pure pleasure to drive if you like a true sportscar experience with a drop-top for a price of a used mustang, instead of its MSRP of 76000.
