    2001 Bmw 330ci — fun as hell to drive, looks good, nice interior some decisions about the interior (read: cup holders) were stupid ideas.

    Beautiful, Amazing Performance For A Sedan, Well Built And Well Engineered. — Excellent handling, great power even for automatics, eye-catching style and designed with the pilot...uh hem.. driver in mind. It is a sport/race car first, with leisure secondary. Do not be fooled into thinking that this is a luxury car, the soul and spirit is of performance and the shocks are not that cushy, but take the turns with 3x the posted speeds always obey the laws of the road).

    Pros: Style, power, performance, fuel efficiency, handling, just about everything...

    Cons: Costly maintenance, retrofit, options. window regulator, sun roof. Less bugs closer to 2005

    Pleasure To Own And Drive — Comfortable, well equipped, good looking, reliable, fast and economical for a 3.0 litre petrol car. Feels safe and well built plus there are lots of after market modifications available for the 3 series so it is easy to make the car look even better for reasonable money. Best car i have owned and it is a pleasure to own and drive.

    Pros: lots of after market modifications available

    Cons: high insurance group 19

    Excellent Design, Some Build Quality Issues, Great Handling — Great car, only 184 hp, but is quite quick in the mountains. Comfortable back seat, good ride, decent stereo, good ergonomics. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a lower-end sport/luxury coupe. Just make sure you read about potential parts breaking.

    Pros: The handling  with the sport package is quite good, but still very comfortable around the city.  Gas mileage averages over 30mpg on the highway and around 22-23mpg overall.  The five speed transmission hasn't given me any hiccups and shifts very smoothly.  I personally find the E46 BMW one of the best looking 3 series produced.  

    Cons: Research online what goes wrong, because it has for me.  The interior trim falls constantly and must be re glued, the FSR in the climate control went out at around 70k miles, the water pump died at 80k miles.  Fortunately, there is a wealth of online information and a lot of DIY's out there.

    Incredible Driver's Car With A Few Kinks. — With a good wheel and tire combination, the car handles better than most cars on the road. Brakes have incredible stopping power and the power and torque are lots of fun. A manual transmission would be much better in this type of car as the automatic isn't very reliable and the manual mode has rough shifts. Interior is quiet and comfortable, great for long highway trips. Optional premium sound system isn't very good. Car got totaled by an SUV on freeway and was clearly the better built car. Car was still drivable after the highway speed accident but the SUV that hit it had lost a wheel and destroyed its engine.

    Pros: Incredible handling, great overall performance, quiet & comfortable interior

    Cons: Horrible gas mileage in city, automatic transmission isn't very good
