2005 BMW 3 Series Coupe 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I previously owned a a 2001 325i (manual) sedan, and wanted more of a sporty car, so I picked the 330Ci (premium package, cold weather package, and sport package, steptronic). The handling makes this car, and horsepower makes a big difference. Steptronic in manual mode is a nice change from regular auto. Interior screams luxury. Best sports car I have owned.


Best Features

HANDLING is the big one, I have never driven another car that could duplicate it (in this price range).


Worst Features

The only draw backs I have found are the doors are extremely heavy, and the front seatbelts are hard to reach, other than that this car is a great choice!

2005 BMW 3 Series Coupe 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Traded my E36 for this one and all that was wrong with the old one has been fixed with this model. Much better trim quality and power delivery than previous model. Definitely the best car I've ever owned and the most fun and stylish way to get from A to B.


Best Features

Engine, handling, styling, HK sound system.


Worst Features

18" rims make steering feel more numb than smaller rims.

Review

A very fun car to drive, and handles like it was on a rail. The shifing is very smooth and the handling is great- I upgraded to the 19" tires. The inside is luxurious and firm thanks to the sports package. An all-around great car.


Best Features

Smooth shifting and great road feel.


Worst Features

I would like to see a navigation system standard.

Review

As fun to drive as it looks. Everyone should try one sometime in their life.


Best Features

Responsive engine, great sound, smooth ride.


Worst Features

Would be great to have tires with better tread wear after 10,000 miles. My Continentals were rough after 7500 mile rotation. Never the same after that.
