Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: 4. The 335i Convertible's Bluetooth cell phone integration gave us access to our phone book. As we would expect in a 335i, the suspension is nice and rigid, allowing no body roll in corners. It sounds wonderful, and we frequently turned off the audio system so we could hear its low-tempo, perfectly controlled growl. There's a separator between the two rear seats, which would make it very uncomfortable to try to cram three people back there.
The front doors host hard plastic, flip-out map pockets. The boot, or trunk lid, is lengthened, for instance, and the fenders upper flanks are widened and more vertically aligned with the lower fender panels. The manual gearbox, on the other hand, feels mushy, like it's moving the gears with cables and pulleys. Shifts are superbly executed, whether up or down and at partial or full throttle. Not so much in stopwatch-measured quickness as in smoothness, precision and ease of use. All occupants had good things to say about the car's comfort over a 5-hour freeway trip, with a significant amount of time spent in heavy traffic. Even in sixth gear, it pulled the long grades without difficulty.
Drives great, just serviced, perfect hardtop Convertible. I would definitely recommend them and will also use them again. It provides a comfortable ride for passengers and, with the top down, extra sun and air in a stylish package. With the top down, the roof panels stow in the trunk, severely limiting luggage space. He was courteous was willing to work with us the best he could. Unless otherwise indicated, specifications refer to test vehicle. Keep the seals clean and protected, and lubricate the moving parts see Kat's sticky on the topic and so far so good.
The rear seats aren't adjustable but have a nice contour. Standard is a six-speed manual transmission; optional is a six-speed automatic transmission allowing manual gear selection with the Steptronic feature. This is especially true of the sport seats, which left us squirming in quest of a relaxing position less than two hours into a daylong drive. The up-level engine also displaces 3. Well maintained with services, smoged and detailed. The 335i Convertible looks really good, too, as long as you direct your gaze to the front of the car.
Rear seats are also fitted with pop-up roll bars behind the head restraints that deploy in a fraction of a second when sensors detect signs of an impending rollover. I am thinking about buying a 2007-2011 3 series retractable hardtop. And the 3 Series Convertible has not been immune to this creeping plague of numbing isolation. Once paired, the car's display gave us access to our phone book. Witness the Volkswagen Eos, the Volvo C70, and the Chrysler Sebring.
Both engines come with a six-speed, manual transmission. Two cup holders hidden under a flip-cover in the rear portion of the full-length center console serve rear seat occupants. The automatic's brain does a masterful job of choosing the best gear, whether it's to power out of a tight corner or to squeeze the most miles out of a tank of premium fuel on a relaxed Sunday drive. You also don't need to push the unlock button on the key to open the doors--if the key is in proximity to the car, you only need to touch the door handle and the lock will pop open. The outline of a low-profile power bulge traces back across the hood from the upper corners of the grille to the base of the A-pillars the side frames of the windshield. Another setting lets you switch between music and theater modes, the latter being surround sound.
Nicely equipped, featuring; Premium Package, heated seats, Navigation, plus. Three people and luggage was a comfortable maximum, as there isn't much trunk room even with the top up. Drives great, just serviced, perfect hardtop Convertible. A lockable glove box accommodates owner's manuals and feature guides, a re-chargeable flashlight and a spare key bracket. The Bad When down, the convertible top uses up most of the trunk space and shifts weight to the rear of the car, lightening up the steering.
The wide track distance between the tires side to side pushes the tires to the outer limits of the body, giving the '07 a solid, planted stance. Is the title designated 'Salvage' or 'Reconstructed'? The reason we didn't buy had nothing to do with the business or the vehicle quality, those we're all great. While we like the metal strip that separates the upper and lower parts of the dashboard, the black plastic covering the center stack looks dated. I have the leather interior for a little added style which in the pale beige color can get dirty easily, but it also cleans up well with leather wipes. The key can stay in your pocket while you turn over the engine by pushing the start button on the dashboard.
Its 300 lb-ft of torque kicks in at a low 1,400rpm. Odometer is 75684 miles below market average! The costs a lot less money, and gives the 335i Convertible some serious performance competition, but the Infiniti doesn't have a convertible version. Safety features include the usual array of front and side airbags, plus lower dash-mounted, anti-submarine knee airbags. Up front, the new 3 Series easily passes what some automotive stylists call the rearview mirror test, whether a driver can recognize a car's brand from a quick glance in the mirror. Reading other feedback it sounds like this is common for the dealer. For those few who want more than they can use, there's the 335i, and for a turbocharged engine, its power delivery is decently managed.
