A Glam Machine. — Overall- i just love the car. Performance- acceleration is super, braking is on the spot, handling is brilliant. Appearance - for a machine, its quite glamorous. Build quality - is quite strong. Cost of ownership- is quite pricy to maintain. Fun factor - its a breeze to drive esp. on the right road.

Bmw 330i — Great car with brilliant engine, probably the best engine ever built by BMW. Very solid vehicle with awesome styling and real easy to drive, it actually make the driver look good with the way it handles. To top it off it doesnt cost a cent to maintain for 4 Yrs/ 50k Miles, how can you beat that?

It rocks

Cons

It doesn't look too fast, but oh boy it is a quicky

I'm Driving My Dream Car! — This car is so fun to drive! I love taking off from stop lights and smoking the car that was next to me. I also love going around corners fast. It hugs them so tight and keeps you in your seat rather than throwing you across the car.

Bmw!!!!! — What an amazing car! Not only is it beautiful on the inside and out, it handles like no other. The interior is beautifully assembled and is very luxurious but simple in function. The engine although only has 215 bhp is still plenty powerful and has some of the silkiest acceleration. The 6 spd. manual transmission is a perfect combo for this engine.

Pros

Enviably reliable and considering the size of the engine..bloody efficient too! a real feeling of quality and class throughout from the interior trim to the electronic controls. I was really impressed with the power to weight ratio as I thought it wouldn't have much Ummph..boy was I wrong. An instant seller as far as I am concerned!

Cons

Ok..its a BMW..you see one everywhere you look on the road..probably cause they are very good value for money and damn reliable but personally..I don't want what everyone has got..I like the different and innovative and thats all I can say against it!

105

Whilst My Cars Was In For Repairs And Upgrades — Ahhh..this is the type of car I will probably have when I settle down and want to take the wife and kids out for a picnic..whenever that will bloody happen is anyones guess..?

Pros

It's everything you'd expect from the smallest luxury BMW.

Cons

The engineers could have added some additional comfort to the seats, and it wouldn't been great if the car held it's line around corners a little better.

Another Great 3-series From Bmw — The latest BMW 3-series continues BMW's tradition of setting a standard for "entry" level luxury sport sedans. The exterior design is just what someone would expect from a class leading organization. The interior meets anyone's needs. Their are 2 areas that are a bit of letdown. First, the seats and ride are not as comfortable as expected for the price. Second, the car doesn't hold to the road as well as previous versions, or as well as an Audi A4. As I've driven both a 330xi and a 330i, neither of them inspire the level of confidence while driving that the Audi does.
