2003 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Never paying much attention to the brand
market position this is my 5th new BMW
and 3rd consecutive annual purchase
after 01 330cic and last year's 325i
wagon. Never have I encountered better
ergonomics, more than edequate
performance and elegant rather than
fashion-driven design. Resale value is
excellent, dealer support can be a
guideline to other makers. European
delivery is a logistical breeze and how
and why would you pick up a car in
Tokyo? I buy a new one every year.
The engine is a marvel. Nothing new
here, but what an evolution! The
pre-gamble interior is home to a first
comer without a moment of hesitation.
Sports seats make a long journey a
dream. All features are a sensible design.
Incorporation of a main switch for all
window activation and remote garage
opener in the rest of the 3 range (from
cic). Middle hot/cold knob needs fiber
optic illumination. Provision of other
wood finishes at no extra cost. M
series euro price schedule long due.
