    Nothing Much Sexier Than This — I am very happy with my 330ci convertible. It looks so sweet and drives so well. It is rare gem. It has Blue/Tan color combo, sport package, factory hardtop, factory upgraded rims, manual transmission, wood interior. Plus I found a great ethical and quality auto reseller at diamondnashville.com where my 330 found its way to me. Still wondering if restoring a 1999 e36 M3 is in my future. *things that make you go hmm - the front windows do not go all the way down extruding .25" or so; i guess to prevent the arm out the window swag look which I was going for

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Plenty of headroom with hardtop, fun power with great MPG, great handling

    Cons: Sport seats are supportive but for daily use are not comfortable more than 30 minutes at a time @ 6'6 240lb

    Wish the manual was not notched, the gear ratios more sporty for me the manual is only rewarding in non-DSC mode.

    Nice ! — This car is AMAZING! I have the 325CI i with automatic transmission, the sport package and the premium Harman Kardon sound system(Which sounds like a movie theatre in your car). I've had the car a little over two years ago and bought it with aprox. 56,000 miles. The exterior styling is timeless, the interior is of higher quality materials and the engine and body are very solid. Other than that I've been very happy with this car and will probably purchase another one when the time comes. This car is for someone who wants look really nice driving in it. Business sport package. The PRO-CAR

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: NICE CAR TO OWN !

    Cons: NEED TO KEEP UP WITH IT !

    2004 325i — Performance - Great balance, acceleration, handling. Build Quality - 3 1/2 years old, still a solid car. There is one rattle by the driver window, which the dealer ship is working on. Fun factor - Very fun to drive. Cost of ownership - 13.1 litres per 100 km Service has been good. Appearance - I am particularly fond of the body style in which the 2004's fall.

    Pros: balance, handling, performance

    Cons: none yet

    Best Car I Ever Owned, Even Beats The Porsche — I love everything about my car. Handling, acceleration, trim, looks, colour. I get about 30 miles to the gallon average and about 17000 miles between services. Heating system and A/C are really great and I love the heated seats. Great fun to drive and always feels safe. Sounds good too.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Safety features
