I'll try to be brief. I'm a 25 year BMW driver - I've had every car......for the past 10 years I've been driving 3 different 7s. Three months ago I purchased a fully loaded X5 4.8 - I live in snow country in New England and ski in the winters - plus my kids are very active in sports. So I thought it was time to go SUV and all-wheel drive. I love the car, but it is basically a lemon. It's been in the shop 3 times with the same issue for a total of 3 weeks. The last trip in was for two straight weeks. I won't bore you with all the details.

When I finally got the car back I spotted a fully load black 650 convertible - I was taken back to say the lease. The car was beautiful. My dealer is offering to switch me out of the X5 and into this car. I'm very tempted to do the deal. Just wanted get some feedback on this from anyone on the board, specifically:

1 - Your impressions on this car?
2- How's it in the winter time - I'm guessing I'll need snow tires?
3- What's the ride like with the top down? Is it noisy?
4 - Anything else worth noting?

Thanks in advance!!!!!
