2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Coupe RWDReview

Silver Bmw 330ci 2004 — Handling is typically where the 330ci comes into its own. The build quality is not Audi like my previous cars, but its still great. Power is adequate, seats are good, the rear seats are good for two adults, and the boot space is practical. Service and Sales at AutoClassic are second to none, although I did pay too much for it ...

Pros: Handling, looks superb

Cons: Entry price, no towing options, coupe can be impractical

Bmw 320i — Best 3 series in the histroy of BMW. Mine is touring for pracicality and inline 6 for performance. Gas milage is a little disappointing, but not too bad. In overall, it really fits my lifestyle and needs. It's got a sports package (sports wheel, sports suspension, sports body kit, sports seat and M-steering wheel).

Pros: Fantastic car in overall

Cons: Not really negative

Handles Well Has Power That Its Supposed To, Is Fun To Drive — Excellent 5 speed car. Inline 6 cylinder -has everything to make the everyday drive pleasurable, excellent handling, shifts smoothly, gets 24-30 mpg. Performs like it should... haven't had to do any maintenance whatsoever... Makes everyday or long trip driving fun, very fun on curves B+ overall rating! Not a ton of power but enough for now

Pros: smooth on curves , quiet handles better than most cars 24-30 mpg

Cons: none it is the car its supposed to be

Loved My 325 — A great car that I wished I had kept. E46 is best modern chassis BMW has built, though 325Ci was a bit down on power. Best combo of form, function, and comfort - plus fun to drive! Better engineered than the E92, which has too many electronic gadgets that replace perfectly good mechanicals and detract from the overall package.

Pros: Fun to drive, well engineered chassis/amenities, great tranny, great ergonomics

Cons: Not a 330!  HK stereo a bit down on functionality (can't play MP3s / line in)

2004 Bmw 330 Xi — 2004 BMW 330 XI. It's a solid car... good looks (i got the sports package). Preformance is good for a "sports sedan" but I'd like a little more. Overall I've been happy with it. Planning to upgrade to the M3 soon. Not sure if I'm going coupe or convertible yet. Preferably in white.

Pros: Solid car

Cons: Good preformance for its class, but I'd like more.

2004 330i Zhp - A Poor Man's 4-door M3 — The E46 3-series really shines with the Performance Package (ZHP) factory option. Everything about the car becomes tighter and more precise - the steering, braking, chassis response, transmission, and to a small extent even the power. This is what the E46 was meant to be from the start. Problems with interior trim vibrating cropped up way earlier than they did on my 2000 328i, and the dealership was useless in tracking down a strange transmission/clutch noise. Other problems are minor including control arm bushings wearing out too quickly and the like. Let us not forget the debacle with the E46 subframe failures either!

Pros: The looks attract a lot of attention and I driving is never boring while planted and precise.

Cons: Minor reliability issues and iterior trim issues that a japanese vehicle would rarely suffer from.

Billie — Had this car for a while, really nice, a few too many kms on it when I got it. Good on fuel and fund to drive, with a great engine note, and a cool exhaust noise on overrun. Handling was tops, and nice big alloys on it, that were a pain in the butt to keep clean. Nice cream leather interior.

Pros: Engine note, handling, comfort. looks

Cons: A bit firm on rough roads
