This 1997 BMW 328i Convertible is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over light gray Montana leather and powered by a 2.8-liter inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes a removable body–color hardtop, a black soft top, fog lights, air conditioning, heated and power-adjustable front sport seats, cruise control, and an AM/FM cassette stereo. The car was first registered in New Jersey and spent time in Florida before it was acquired by the selling dealer in 2021. Service in March 2022 consisted of replacing the brake pads and flushing the brake fluid. This 328i has 51k miles and is now offered at no reserve by the selling dealer with a toolkit, a hardtop stand, a spare set of wheels and tires, manufacturer’s literature, a car cover, a clean Carfax report, and a clean New Jersey title.
The body is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic with black side moldings and features a removable body–color hardtop, a power-operated black soft top, integrated fog lights, and dual exhaust outlets. According to the selling dealer, the passenger-side rear quarter panel has been repainted. Scrapes and blemishes are visible on the front valance. Paint meter readings are presented in the gallery below.
Silver-finished 17″ ASA wheels wear 235/40 Yokohama S-Drive tires. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel disc brakes. A brake fluid flush was performed and replacement brake pads were fitted in March 2022. A set of four wheels and tires are included in the sale, photos of which are provided in the gallery.
The seats are trimmed in light gray Montana leather and are complemented by color-coordinated door panels and carpets. Additional equipment includes heated and power-adjustable front sport seats, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, an onboard computer, an AM/FM cassette stereo, and power windows and door locks.
A leather-wrapped steering wheel frames a 155-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges. The digital odometer indicates 51k miles.
The 2.8-liter M52 inline-six was factory rated at 190 horsepower and 206 lb-ft of torque.
Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. Additional underside photos are provided in the gallery below.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in New Jersey and Florida.
