Introduction

Like the coupe, the BMW cabriolet has gone through a rebadging exercise as well with the company’s efforts to identify their more dynamic models into even model numbers. Thus this new 435i cabriolet replaces the previous generation 335i model.

Despite the constant sizzling temperatures on our island, we do have pretty decent cabriolet weather. But as the recent weather proves, it all can change rather quickly here as well. And the convenience of a hard top folding roof becomes immediately apparent.

Besides the improved profile of the car, there’s nothing like the security of having a metal roof over your head even if it’s only psychological. Considering that the roll over bars do a better job of protecting your noggin than the folding metal roof does. On top of that, the sound insulation is much more effective with the hardtop.

These guys are fast, responding the very next day with offers and more importantly higher than what was offered by the dealer whom I am buying my car from.
