This car is truly a pleasure to drive and also striking to look at. The handling is precise and far superior to any other car I've driven. 80MPH feels like nothing in this car. As others have stated, this is not the greatest car for winter driving. Snow tires advised or, more preferrably, I'd advise taking off the road for the winter. The blindspots are difficult to get used to, particularly when backing up and this requires extra caution on the part of the driver.

Great car with a solid engine and drive train. Lot's of neat extras and VERY fun to drive. The ability to have auto settings for the seat and mirror setting makes it really convenient when my wife and I change cars. The way the back seat folds down allowing access to the trunk space makes it a very versatile car when picking up things at Lowe's or when traveling.

Do your homework, research the vehicle report (CarFax, etc.) do a thorogh pre-purchase inspection. These are available at various BMW club sites. Have a BMW dealer or mechanic do a readout of the computer for stored error codes. If possible, buy a car from a snow free area – all of the cars I looked at up north showed signs of corrosion on the engine, suspension, etc. This is true for any car, not just BMW’s. Take your time, find the right car and then when you are ready, negoiate on price.

@004 BMW 330ci

by from Longmont, Colorado on May 4, 2010

One of the best used car values. Styling inside and out is nice. Performance is good as well as the handling. Reliability seems OK but expensive to service.

Hi: This is my second BMW and my first used one. I like this car very much. Great acceleration and road response. Nothing drives like a BMW. Although it had about 67K on the speedo. I found it was well taken care of. However, there are still a few rattles and scratches. I like the way these cars look as compared to the 2006+ body styles. Parts are expensive as I replaced a simple sensor already.

Best Car I've Ever Owned!

I have 112k on my 04 330i and she still purrs perfection like from the dealership. Each morning as I walk to my car, a smile crosses my face. For the money, you cannot beat the quality, options and overall look and ride. Unbelievable. My car was worth every penny I bought it for. I have had no major problems, just normal maintenance and wear and tear like all cars. Maintenance is slightly more expensive than generic cars but should be expected as a proud owner. I love driving this car and it is so much fun to take on trips, especially with the gas mileage and the amount of trunk space it has. The car drives ridiculously smooth and sometimes I catch myself speeding without even realizing it. I love love love this car and if I could do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing (except for the color!).

I've tested and owned many of the sport coupes on the market today. None of them compares to the BMW 3-series. some may have more power or a couple different options the bimmer doesn't have but all in all the 3-series is still hands-down the ultimate driving machine!

Ultimate Driving Machine

While all cars are good, BMW is at the next level and holds up to its motto as the ultimate driving machine. I've owned American, Japanese, and German cars, and BMW is solid, smooth, sporty, yet also practical. And it's VERY accommodating and very thoughtful in the details. In the 3.5 years I've owned it, I continued discovering features. As all cars become due for service & repair due to normal use and higher mileage, this car has been the easiest car I've worked on. The engineers at BMW did a great job on making it very repair-friendly. And parts were more affordable than I expected. In fact, many were even less expensive than the late model VW I owned. Overall, inside and out, this is a great car, and I would buy BMW again.

330xi meets Colorado mountains.

The 330 xi has been almost as good a snow car as our audi A6. Winter tires are a must. At 25,000 miles no problems encountered. Much less comfortable on long trips than the A6. Averaging 24 mpg in mixed town and freeway driving. Our dog prefers the A6, the kids like the 330.
