Pros

BMW - The Ultimate Driving Machine

Cons

The lack of a limited slip differential means I have to take corners with a bit of caution, as opposed to the flat-out driving experience I had in my R33 Skyline GTS-T

My 330i — Performance - sportscar acceleration with never-ending power band. Steering response is equally excellent. Braking is good, but fades a bit after long periods of spirited driving (which is to be expected). Handling is very good, but lacks a limited slip differential for balls-to-the-wall driving. The DTC is too invasive. Build Quality - commensurate with a BMW. Solid, with no issues. Appearance - definitely a sleeper. The only thing that differentiates this from the 320i's is the dual exhaust and the 330i badge, which means lots of people will mistake it for a 320i, and challenge it as such, with disastrous results. Cost of Ownership - definitely a gas guzzler, but my company pays for my fuel, so whatever :-) Fun Factor - Ummmm, this is a BMW.

Love It — This car is exactly what you want out of a BMW, it has an incredible inline 6 naturally aspirated engine. I love the amount of pull it has in higher gears, with a great amount in low gears as well. Great interior, good adaptive BI Xenon lights and rear fogs.

sport driving, luxury and drivability

Cons

high maintenance

Nice! — performance and luxury... the only downside is the high maintenance and limited aftermarket parts like turbo, tranny conversions, some bolt ons and interior extras... but it was a great coupe.. so simple to be called a sports car yet so complicated to be dubbed as simple, wll something like that...

Pros

It drives really well!

Cons

Can be quite expensive for younger people.

One Of The Best German Cars Around! — Extremely good handling, quick response braking, although a diesel has a bit of lag when quickly accelerating. The car looks very sporty for a four door saloon car. It is very fun to drive it, sporty when you want it, comfortable when you need it.

A Good Highway Car. — it is ok with acceleration it is not a very fast car, the braking is good, the handling is pretty good and it has a good grip on the sharp turns. it had no repairs and it is good on the highway. the exterior is red and it is a convertible and it has a nasty looking exhaust tip. the interior of the car is a creme color and is a little tight when you get in. when im in the car i feel kinda sick for some reason.
