2005 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
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.
HANDLING is the big one, I have never driven another car that could duplicate it (in this price range).
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!
