    Nice! — Good amount of power! Love the rims and its very FUN to drive! Love to turn off the DTC at winter and drive a bit sideways! The cream colored leather suits a black car very nice and gives it a nice look.

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

    Pros: The manual gearbox!

    Cons: More power could be nice!

    Bmw 330 Ci — It's really good. The nice 186 hp engine but it feels more when you drive it fast. It cost $60,000 and hasn't been crashed. BMW 330CI E46 2001 is fun to drive. Top Speed 250 KM/H. This car is amazing.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Everything

    My 330i — Performance - sportscar acceleration with never-ending power band. Steering response is equally excellent. Braking is good, but fades a bit after long periods of spirited driving (which is to be expected). Handling is very good, but lacks a limited slip differential for balls-to-the-wall driving. The DTC is too invasive. Build Quality - commensurate with a BMW. Solid, with no issues. Appearance - definitely a sleeper. The only thing that differentiates this from the 320i's is the dual exhaust and the 330i badge, which means lots of people will mistake it for a 320i, and challenge it as such, with disastrous results. Cost of Ownership - definitely a gas guzzler, but my company pays for my fuel, so whatever :-) Fun Factor - Ummmm, this is a BMW.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: BMW - The Ultimate Driving Machine

    Cons: The lack of a limited slip differential means I have to take corners with a bit of caution, as opposed to the flat-out driving experience I had in my R33 Skyline GTS-T

    Fantastic — Awesome car in all aspects. Perfect handling, great quality, great driving comfort, great looks, great safety features...Oh, the only thing that could be improved is the cap holder design and placement, apparently the Germans don't drink in their cars ;) While on OEM warranty you need a good dealer service so make sure you keep looking until you find one that is satisfactory

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: All

    Cons: Price might be one as it's not cheap

    Best Sedan Money Can Buy — Always provides some form of thrill. Traction Control allows some wheel spin, without totally loosing control. Acceleration can not be beat, especially in the 50- 70 passing speed. BMW maintenance, is the best in the industry.No major problems to speak of yet either. Loaners are always top of the line, brand new models. Milage is decent as well at 300 to 350 miles on a full tank, about $40 to fill up at $2.65 a gallon.

    Pros: Amazing Handleing

    Cons: Get the new 335i

    Love It — This car is exactly what you want out of a BMW, it has an incredible inline 6 naturally aspirated engine. I love the amount of pull it has in higher gears, with a great amount in low gears as well. Great interior, good adaptive BI Xenon lights and rear fogs.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great Performace

    Cons: N/A

    Maybe The Best Of The 32 Cars I've Owned, Including Numerous European Luxo And Sports Cars — My second 3 series car. Purchased as a CPO with 16K miles 4 years ago. Now has about 54K miles and has completely met my expectations. Get the premium and sport packages if you can; these make the car much more enjoyable and capable.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: cool-looking, quick, agile and lots of fun

    Cons: run-flat performance tires are really expensive, but safer

    Nice! — performance and luxury... the only downside is the high maintenance and limited aftermarket parts like turbo, tranny conversions, some bolt ons and interior extras... but it was a great coupe.. so simple to be called a sports car yet so complicated to be dubbed as simple, wll something like that...

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

    Pros: sport driving, luxury and drivability

    Cons: high maintenance
