BMW 330i is overpriced; lacks space

2002 BMW 3 Series 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!)
