Looking at used 2012 328i vert - experiences anyone?

I'm looking to purchase a used convertible for the short Minnesota summers. Found one for 19K (2012 328i) and am wondering if anyone has experience with them. I believe it was the first year for the model. This car has 59K on it.

I've owned many BMWs, currently have a 17 X5, so experienced with BMW, just not the 3 series convertible.

I'm also very tall, haven't checked out the headroom in the vert versus the sedan or coupe.

I recently purchased a 2011 328i Convertible (E93) with 59k miles. I just replaced the idler pulley, belt and tensioner as the idler pulley was making a little noise. Super easy job, took about 30 minutes. I really like the car!

Also, I believe 2012 is the last year for the Convertible E93 model, and the 2013 was the first year for the newer F33 model. 2012 was the new model for the sedans and wagons only.

I read this one Wikipedia....

"The coupe was introduced in 2006 and the cabriolet was introduced in 2007. In 2012, the E90/E91 sedans and wagons were replaced by the F30/F31 models. However, the E92/E93 coupes and cabriolets remained in production until 2013, when they were replaced by the F32/F33 models."

Good luck with your purchase.
