This 2014 BMW 428i Convertible is a true modern classic with all
the right desirable features. After all, it has a full midnight
presentation, folding hardtop, loaded luxury interior, and the kind
of turbocharged power that comes from the best in modern
performance motors. So if you're looking for a low-mileage European
with all the right features, this is your ride.
This is the first model year for the inaugural BMW 4-Series
convertible. While that will have distinction that only grows with
time, don't forget that this one is also so modern that BMW still
sells this generation today. It's one of the sleekest hardtop
convertibles around with a compact power folding roof that is so
well engineered that it can mimic the look of a coupe when the roof
is in place. But in an interesting twist, BMW's German designers
took a cue from the classic American hardtop bodystyle by running
wraparound silver trim around the base of the pillars and windows.
You can see this easily thanks to the contrasting shade of black
that was applied with German precision by the factory, and it still
looks great today.
The black interior means this one was born an all-black machine,
which is another desirable feature for the collectors out there. A
modern luxury convertible also means plenty of modern luxury
conveniences. It starts with the leather interior that includes
power and heated bucket seats for the driver and front passenger.
There's also power windows, power locks, keyless entry, keyless
ignition, power steering, and dual automatic climate control. The
factory AM/FM/CD/XM stereo is part of a modern infotainment system
that includes a central screen that's your hub for everything from
the satellite navigation to the backup camera. The presentation is
absolutely sporty with a nice contrasting red on dash, doors, and
even the stitching for the seats and steering wheel (it's a
three-spoke sports unit with buttons for everything from cruise
control to paddle shifters.) But modern features don't just mean
adding technology; it also means superior safety. This includes
front airbags, side airbags, ABS, and automatically deploying
Another place where the modern classic excels is in the engine bay.
Beneath the all those engine covers is a twin-turbo 2.0-liter motor
rated at 240 hp. We love to call this a future classic just because
of how smooth the motor is. It's paired to a versatile eight-speed
automatic transmission, and one of the best engineered suspensions
available on the market. That's why this car helped the 4-Series
continue BMW's streak as the most awarded car on Car and Driver's
10 Best list. The four-wheel disc brake package with optional
18-inch wheels on Pirelli run-flat tires just completes this full
sporting setup. So you know this is the kind of car that makes you
want to drop the top and let the wind ripple while you take the
long way home.
This is a two-owner low-mileage modern classic. So if you love
getting a deal on a striking convertible, call today!
