Asked by Mar 02, 2013 at 02:58 AM about the 2002 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just bought this beauty and it has been neglected. Just finished a complete transmission (gm)
rebuild, motor sounds good, brakes need work, started to get a significant miss when I filled the gas
tank. I plan on new valve cove rgasket, plugs, boots, break pads, fuel filter, rear diff fluid change,
rear left window regulator rebuild. Also cheap source for a new top?
Any other words of wisdom on this model?

It sound as if you are on the right path with this Bavarian. Take it in small steps and you'll end up with long term pride of ownership.
