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.

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

One Of The Best German Cars Around! — Extremely good handling, quick response braking, although a diesel has a bit of lag when quickly accelerating. The car looks very sporty for a four door saloon car. It is very fun to drive it, sporty when you want it, comfortable when you need it.

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

Pros: It drives really well!

Cons: Can be quite expensive for younger people.
