I live in Minnesota, winter is coming and I just purchased a BMW 328i Convertible. I still have time to exchange it. Should I choose the X3 SUV instead?

2011 BMW 328i Convertible OR 2013 X3 SUV?

Convertibles are fair weather cars, if you have someplace to store them inside through the winter is best for them, freezing tends to ruin the tops rather quickly. It is up to you but I'd go with the SUV, it will cost more in fuel but at least you can usually drive year round.

Thanks Mark - I forgot to add the fact that the 328i Convertible is a retractable HARD TOP - but I think we're leaning to the SUV anyway!


Good choice. I personally like SUV's over a car, they are just more versatile.
