As a journalist, part of my job is to observe the world objectively. As an automotive journalist, my job is to see the world through the eyes of would-be drivers, providing them with insights and observations about everything from powertrains to pricing.
So when a car that toes the line of $100K comes across my radar, I immediately take notice. And let’s be blunt: in these economic times, taking notice can come with a degree of initial skepticism. Can this car--the 2012 BMW 650i convertible- really be worth it?
For most drivers, the answer would be “no,” but for a select few that will have the good fortune to get behind the wheel of this performance automaker’s 650i convertible, as I did recently, the answer will be “yes, yes, oh my goodness, yes.”
