2002 BMW 3 Series Sedan 330i Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought the BMW330i because of the rave reviews at Edmunds.com. It does handle quite well, is a lot of fun to drive, and let's face it, part of driving a BMW is pure showing off that you can afford one. I made the mistake of getting the automatic transmission, thinking that the city stop-and-go traffic would be worth it, but it isn't. I've had both the manual and auto, and manual is better-- much more fun. The automatic is very smooth, but the Steptronic shifting is a bit shaky--no substitute for the real manual.

Suggested Improvements

This car desperately needs more small- item storage space. Apart from the glove box there is nowhere to store something as large as a CD. Cupholders are very inconveniently located right behind the shifter, UNDER the armrest (either drink or rest your arm, but not both!)

I bought this car for my wife and she loves it! Plenty of zip for her and the car is very well made - great fit and finish.

Probably would have to say the way it looks; just right!

2002 BMW 3 Series Sedan 330xi AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is an absolute Driver's Car. The car has superb handling and driving dynamics. The engine is flawless and very responsive to a drivers input. The car's entirior is well defined. It's AWD system paired with its premium and sports package (with M Aerodynamic kit) make this car the best on its class. I never get tired driving my 2002 330xi because it's a lot of fun to drive it whether it be on highways or mountainous roads. I love it!! BMW sets standards for a true " ultimate driving machines".


Favorite Features

All of the cars characteristics! but most of all is the great V6 coupled with its AWD system (32/68 distribution), sports and premium package. A perfect car indeed!!!!!


Suggested Improvements

Let me think for a second???? Maybe a more aggresive exterior look in the future? Ala the upcoming BMW CS1(1 Series) would be nice!

Review

This vehicle has surpassed my expectations. The ride and handling are excellent. I expected the AWD system to be a drag on the acceleration but I have been pleasantly suprised by the responsiveness of this XI model. To summarize, this is a great car. If only BMW would provide a a stereo system worthy of the overall performace of this remarkable vehicle.


Favorite Features

I love the handling on this car. The steering and engine response are superior.


Suggested Improvements

Considering the price of this car, you would expect a premium sound system to be a standard feature. BMW should follow the lead of Lexus here.

Review

Picked up my 330i thru ED. Fantastic option for purchasing a car. There is simply no substitute IMHO for driving one of the finest cars in the world on some of the best roads in the world. If you can afford the time exercise the ED option. You won't regret it. BTW, have you ever heard of someone who did the ED option ever not recommending it?

Power and handeling

Review

This is my 3rd BMW. First two were 5 series and now a 3 series. At first I thought I would severely miss the room of the 5, but never mind, this car is so much fun to drive that I never think about the differences between the 5 and the 3! Sports, premium, zenon lights, orient blue metallic...what fun!


Favorite Features

The acceleration, the steering, the suspension, the transmission, the great leather smell, etc, etc, etc,


Suggested Improvements

The center console is clumsy and the cup holders are rediculous.
