2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I posted a review back in May, and I
loved the car. It's now December, and
my opinion hasn't changed in the

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

Advice: Buy snow tires w/rims, or
leave in the garage during winter.

cost a mere $430 to replace with BMW
Brake dust means rims require frequent
cleaning; cupholders suck golf balls
