2001 BMW 3 Series 330xi AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

The car has been trouble free and a blast to drive. No need to worry about the weather ahead of you with full time AWD! Oil changes and brake fluid replacement has been all that has been needed. Rock solid, no rattles or squeaks.


Best Features

All wheel drive plus BMW 3 series powertrain.


Worst Features

Self dimming rear view mirror could respond to light a bit faster.

2001 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

The three series epitomizes what BMW is all about; performance with a touch of class and understated elegance.


Best Features

Smooth engine performance, exterior style.


Worst Features

At this price, lack of a six-CD player is inexcusable. The seats could be more comfortable and the cupholder design is flawed.

2001 BMW 3 Series 330i Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased a 2001 BMW 330i CPO car, which is the only way to go but typically will cost you a few more duckies. Great car, tremendous torque versus the 325i and the steptronic AT is perfect. No complaints except for a tall person, its a little tough getting in and out.


Best Features

The engine and transmission.


Worst Features

Better seating

Review

We bought this car used 2 years ago and our love affair with it has not ceased from the moment it first beautified our driveway. Fun to drive (I wanted a manual and am so pleased with the 5-speed manual on this car), great power, looks gorgeous, fantastic Harmon-Kardon stereo system (stuck in traffic? great!) and did I mention fun to drive? Also, no mechanical/reliability issues and the minor issues that have popped up were covered under BMW's used- car extended warranty.


Best Features

Looks, handling, power, stops on a dime, performance, comfort, stereo system, automatic rear-view mirror dimmer, memory-position for driver's seat, safety.


Worst Features

Heated steering wheel is the only thing I can think of to improve this fine piece of German engineering.

2001 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is my first BMW, and I am very pleased. The response is good, gas mileage is around 23 in local driving. I have the optional hard top which is great for the winter months and makes the lines of the car look fantistic. Interior roominess is lacking and rear seat passenger leg room is tight. The car is fun to drive and handling is excellent. I may opt for a 7 series in the near future.


Best Features

Optional hard top, exterior lines, and good performance.


Worst Features

Two or three inch increase in interior length would be helpful.
