2002 BMW 3 Series 330i Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Feel very safe in this car. Impeccable handling, great power, and fabulous brakes turn otherwise scary experiences into just gee whiz moments. No fat. No wasted space. Every control feels exactly like you want it to feel and works the way to want it to work. Totally neutral handling at every speed makes you king of the road in the turns. Park it next to a new Mustang, for example, and you will be amazed at how small it is in comparison although it has more room inside. Tight turning radius makes maneuvering in small spaces a breeze. Cars like this just show how far the others have to go. Reliability has been very good with this and my former 2001 330i. Total mileage driven, about 60K.
Overall performance and balance. No mods. needed. Have had this car on the race track several times and it is always composed, completely controllable, and neutral handling at high speeds even with 3 other passengers. Blows by cars with much more power as superior handling and braking take over.
On line access to your dealer, parts dept. and service history would be nice.
