2005 330Ci overall best car I ever owned,330,00mls

I absolutely love my 2005 BMW 330ci. From its sports car exterior to its user friendly cockpit and surprisingly roomy interior for a coupe. I look forward to driving this machine every day and even take to race on a closed coarse near my home. Performance is great with incredible handling and a lot of get up and go from the powerful V6. Just switch off the Dynamic Stability Control and the Traction Control with the touch of a button and you are in for a good time to put it lightly. Overall a great car that puts a smile on your face everytime you drive it. Just watch your fluid levels and keep up on oil changes and you are good to go. Oh and did I mention mine has 336,000 miles on the odometer, now that’s impressive!


Incredible car from start to finish’

This car runs great and has never given me any issues. Drives smooth. Great sound system. The convertible top goes down quickly and is a blast to drive!


Fun, but definitely expensive to repair.

I enjoy it as long as I don’t have to repair it. Parts and service are definitely very expensive. Also you have to be careful when looking for a mechanic.
