2001 BMW 3 Series 330i Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
What can I say? This 330i has been bought, paid for, and still does everything in 2009 that it did in 2003! No rattles, no performance lag, no dings, no dents. See folks, if you take care of a car - love it (as the Germans say) the car will return the love. This BMW is garage stored but driven daily. All repairs are performed as needed. In 99K miles it's needed a cam sensor, belt tensioner, 2 window regulators, and a valve cover gasket. All of the aforementioned were replaced under warranty. Tires were replaced with exact BMW spec ContiTouring (including the 5th full size spare). Mobil 1 Oil every 7500 miles. Car is a paid-off gem and looks/works in mint condition! No Civic 4 me...
Timeless styling and quality. Performance juxtaposed to economy. Balance in handling. Acceleration. At 99K miles, I don't think this car is even at it's mid-life crisis yet..
