2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

Review

I posted a review back in May, and I loved the car. It's now December, and my opinion hasn't changed in the least. Driver's seat has become more comfortable as it became broken in. You'll get better mileage if you inflate front tire to 32, rear to 38 like the manual says (dealership delivered with 32/32), with no loss of comfort. No reliability issues. Nada. Nichts. Car took 1/2 quart of oil at 4000 miles, and I did off-cycle oil change at 7500. Advice: Buy snow tires w/rims, or leave in the garage during winter.

Best Features

Performance, handling, looks. Amazingly inexpensive replacement parts (dump truck nicked windshield, cost a mere $430 to replace with BMW factory part).

Worst Features

Brake dust means rims require frequent cleaning; cupholders suck golf balls thru garden hose. Easy to hit BMW access button on steering wheel, when all you want to do is lower stereo volume.
