this is a great car!
i had some problems in the buying stages with a sales manager lying to me, but it was not that big of a deal for the value of this car.
the new 330ci's give you that old M3 feel, and power for a fraction of the cost.
this car handles like a dream, it is 0-60 in around 5.7 sec. and the control and feel of the road is amazing.
i would not recomend this car for a everyday drive around town car, after all it is a race car on the street.
with out a doubt get a manual drive, if you want a car for the family to ride in look at the 330i or a 328i, no need spending money if you aren't going to use the car for what it is made for.
i love it!
if you are new to the bmw experience, i recomend finding a mechanic outside of a dealership. you'll find that oil changes and maitence are way cheaper!
most people that do not like bmw's, do not like them because of the sterotype that they are expensive to maintain. DON'T GO TO THE DEALERSHIP!
and you will find this to be false.
i'm not rich by anymeans yet i have a 318ti and a 330ci.
just be smart and it is very doable.
hope this helps
A comfortable ride
2002 BMW 330RogertheShrubber - Milwaukee, WI07/15/2009
This is a very comfortable car. Just when I thought I had discovered all the seat adjustments, I found some more. The seat has memory locations for each driver. When you unlock the doors with "your" key, the seat and side mirrors automatically adjust to YOUR settings. Very nice. The instruments are easy to work with, and the car handles ok for a sedan. Driving at high speed is very comfortable and quiet. At first I was a little annoyed that I spent so much money on a car, but it didn't take long for me to love this car. The high quality and extra comforts make driving much more comfortable and relaxing.
2006 BMW 330Aries48 - Chicago, IL11/28/2010
Great car overall.
Good outside profile. Can't tell much difference with my 2006 than with the newer models.
You have to get used to getting in and out of a low seating vehicle but you adjust to this with time. I am 6 feet.
The inside is sleek and clean with easy to read console features.
The low profile causes problems when you encounter bumps and potholes so you definitely have to slow down to avoid problems. Otherwise the ride is very comfortable.
Haven't had problems with the run-flat tire design yet.
Gas mileage is great for a car with this type performance.
Back seats a little tight for large adults and the trunk slightly smaller than I would like.
Satellite radio and the auxillary feature for my iPod is a plus.
Definitely a great buy if you want a sporty sedan.
