I bought a 2007 328i convertible in Jan 2012 with 54k. (Sports Package)
I took the extended warranty to 100k-with a v. good company.
Researched the roof extensively and came across no problems.
Only...after a heavy downpour (roof up) water streams into the interior briefly as you open the door-pretty minor!
Only other things low overhang at front and fiddly radio controls.
The best car I have ever owned for practicality (great views aft with the roof up), and sheer fun. Now with 62k.
328i a lot less troublesome than the 335i....

How much maintenance was required on the vehicle? I'm at a military academy and we don't get much time away, so I don't want to be spending time going for maintenance, but it does look like an awesome car.

I am surprised at the long service intervals.
Although 15k is suggested, I take mine to a good dealership at 10k intervals (synthetic oil) and have everything checked.
With a good warranty (extended) this should keep you safe.
I happen to love convertibles, but if not a big factor for you, take the coupe.
This is a car I actually look forward to driving every day.
328i seems very reliable-esp versus the 335i which has well-documented problems with fuel supply.
You have to test drive one-it's not a status thing, it's all "feel"!
