2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
This car has had too many problems and
BMW service have not done a good job at
addressing them. I am tired of
hearing that they cannot duplicate the
problem. At about 4K miles the rear
differential had to be replaced (with a
rebuilt one). Car stalls at idle. One
dealer replaced the ignition coil as a
fix, but problem occurred within 30
minutes after the fix. Another dealers
claimed that there was no problem, but
finally admitted that it was an engine
software problem for which a fix does
not yet exisit. Shifting into 1st gear
is hard at times. Speakers rattle.
There is excess wind noise at hwy
speeds. window regulator had to be
replaced. A disappointment.
The car is fun to drive, assuming that
you can ingnore the excess wind noise
and have a day when the car does not
stall while at idle.
