    Pocket Rocket — Maintenance costs when you take it to BMW are crazy high. Runs like a race car. Handles well, great gas milage. Find a good BMW individual repair shop. This 2 door coupe will fly down the road, great for weekend fun drives

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Powerful engine, handles like a dream

    Cons: Light weight, RWD  in winter, repair costs

    Great Balance Of Driving Enjoyment And Practicality — The BMW 330i is a great car. It's styling still looks great and not too outdated. The 3.0 I6 power is respectable for the size of the car and builds torque quickly. The 5 speed is predictable and gives ample feedback. Overall this is a great car with few drawbacks.

    Pros: Handling! This car is very well balanced and is pure driving enjoyment. Great engine torque throughout the RPM range. Styling. Simplicity of the interior.

    Cons: Lack of cup holders & storage space. Can be expensive to maintain at times.

    Great Car For Anyone 16-100 — If all cars would be made with as much quality and precision, people would not have to buy a new one every 5 to 6 years. I think all makers should follow quality standards of BMW. My wife loves them more than she love me!!!!!!

    Pros: excellant  handling, fuel economy, and roomy enough for a family of 4

    Cons: headliner comes loose

    Best Car I Have Had Thus Far — This BMW was great. Great looking car which gets compliments 13 years later. Very reliable and it still looks like brand new after 13 years. There are no major problems with it and is much more reliable than any other car I have had.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great car.

    Cons: Nothing

    Ultimate Driving Machine For Sure — These cars offer enjoyment of driving like no car I have ever driven. Acceleration, Handling, Braking, not to mention Stability Control are all outstanding. Though a bit expensive they are worth every dime, especially if you can find a good used one!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The handling is incredible

    Cons: Nothing I don't like about this car

    2001 Bmw 3 Series 330xi — Super quiet, supremely comfy, surprising luxuries, and sexy to drive. Styling is essentially timeless; so simple and solid, but very thoughtful. The engine is perfectly matched to the car, silky and on a hair-trigger. Handling, obviously, is absolutely superb. Overall outstanding performance and reliability.

    Pros: Luxury
    Sporty
    AWD

    Cons: Expensive Maintenance
    Pricey parts

    Love It — I've had this car for 7 years now, and have had very few major repairs. With a regular maintenance schedule, the engine and transmission are running strong with almost 160,000 miles on the car! I've had to replace the clutch, alternator and brake rotors (normal wearing parts) but that is it! This car still has great looks even being 13 years old.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great fuel economy and fun all around car

    Cons: Repair costs are high (as with any BMW)

    I Love How The Dash Is All Set Up And The Stile. — My wife just loves the stile,looks and the comfort of the car. She loves the convertible top she always has it down as much as she can. She also love how the car handles. And now that our daughter is driving now she also says that its easy to drive.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: I love the performance of the car and the looks and the handling

    Cons: The only thing that I can think of and its not really a big deal its the low profile tires. Because where I live there is bad roads every where I go.

    Love This Car! — I like the way this car looks sitting in the driveway but I love the way it feels on the road. It gets looks all the time and I live in an area where BMW's are common. Very classy very comfortable and very performance minded.

    Pros: This car stands out of the crowd, has great power and goes effortless on the freeway at any speed. Average fuel econ on the freeway is 30+

    Cons: Maint. costs are a little steep. but worth it to keep my car in tip top shape
