2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Second BMW 330 ragtop owned. Delightful
to drive but has two weaknesses.
Underpowered even with the 225 HP six
and engine sound is so flat you feel you
are in a Yugo. Missing the muscular
engine of previous 3 series. Has some
body roll but is very tight for a
convertible. Well built, few problems
within first six months of ownership.
Upgraded 18" wheels are beautiful and
get compliments wherever I drive. Little
wind noise at high speeds.
18" Wheels, ease of top down and up,
sound system, handling, overall styling.
Engine sound needs to be more muscular.
Improved acceleration from stop-
convertible is heavier than sedan and is
sluggish. On star system would be
nice.Alarm system should be standard not
