Asked by May 12, 2016 at 05:41 AM about the 2004 BMW 3 Series 330xi

Question type: General

what is the difference between a 2004
bmw 330xi and a 2004 bmw 330i. I know
the xi is all wheel drive but is that the only
difference. I heard the xi is also slightly
raised higher than the i. is that true?

Xi is slower, does not handle as well as the i, many people don't like the i as much. Drive them both and decide you might be in a area where the winters are snowy traction is somewhat better in the Xi.

Yes, the X means AWD. Slightly higher to accommodate the drivetrain. 'Auto' is right, heavier and more parts. Depending on where you live, you might want the XI. But a 330i with snow tires can be just as safe to drive.
