2002 BMW 3 Series Coupe 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased a BMW 330ci with the common
accesory groups; sunroof, leather,
xenon lights, performance tires,
steptronic tranmission. The car
provides smooth quiet power, assured
stability, prompt braking even on rain-
slicked roads and a relaxing, enjoyable
driving experience. In 30 years of
driving, having owned 15 previous
vehicles, this is by far the best
overall. Dealer is highly recommended.


Best Features

Solid feel, ease of ingress, excellent road manners, long service intervals. Good visibility, especially when parking.


Worst Features

Black paint easily scratches even with premium car care materials. Brakes shed an excessive amount of dust.

This is the true definition of sprort
luxury car. It gives you driving
gratification and loves to be pushed.
Fully equiped with 18" M-wheels makes
this car irresistible.

2002 BMW 3 Series Coupe 325Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I just purchased my 325ci, and couldn't
be happier. I was looking for a bigger
car, after driving a Z3 for the past
three years, and after driving Audi's,
Lexus's and Mercedes, I settled on the
325. I chose the sports package, sunroof
and Xenon's. The suspension of the
sports package is unbelievable, absorbs
bumps wonderfully, and is by far a blast
to drive. I have only had mine for 1000
miles, but I am looking forward to
driving this car for years to come.


Best Features

Great Ride, Easy shifting, looks great driving or sitting at a light


Worst Features

Needs a better "stock" stereo. With the likes of Blaupunkt in Germany, I would think they could partner with someone and put a stereo in that would rival some of their Japanese competitors.

2002 BMW 3 Series Coupe 325Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Both my sister and I own a 2001 232ci
and 2002 325ci respectively. Her car
had a broken gas cover when delivered,
after about a year the overhead liner
began to fall off, the sunroof broke
and the electric seat broke. When I
took delivery of my car in early 2002
the a/c did not work and about six
month later the doors could not be open
from the inside. Where is the German
quality I have read and heard so much
about?


Best Features

Don't get me wrong, the car looks nice and has a lot of very nice features, but the build quality is just not there. If I wanted a car with a lot of quirks I would have bought a SAAB. My old Honda lasted me 9 years and 200,000 miles without a single problem.

2002 BMW 3 Series Coupe 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have owned my 330 coupe for 10
months. The drive is superb. I have
owned the 2.5 and 2.8 3-series and the
3.0 is light years ahead. My only
problem is small build problems. At six
months both front turn signals fell out
on the highway due to a broken clip. A
eight months the door seal came loose
and the driver door must be slammed to
close. The dealer was pretty good
about fixing the problems, but I can
see that BMW is starting to cheapen
some components. Mechanically there
has never been a problem.


Best Features

Engine, stereo


Worst Features

Don't use cheap Eastern Europe labor to put together turn signal lights.
