2004 BMW 3 Series 330i Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I recently purchased a 2004 330i sedan,
and could not be happier with the
decision. I've read about BMW 3Series,
and seen them all over but I never
really had the desire to own one until
I test drove it. It really is a
different driving experience and it's
so easy to drive, especially with the 3
transmission options.


Best Features

Handling in the curves, torque, exhaust sound and the steptronic tranmission. It's almost as fun as a manual. S


Worst Features

My wife thinks the seats are too firm, and more interior storage would help.

2004 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I recently purchased the BMW 325xi with
sport and premium packages and couldn't
be happier. The car drives great and
looks even better. The best decision I
made was getting a 5 speed with the
sport package. I was a little worried
about driving a manual transmission,
however I drove a loaner 325i w/o the
sports package and this isn't even the
same car. I would recommend this
vehicle to anyone, great buy.


Best Features

Sport Package: 17 inch wheels and interior upgrades.


Worst Features

PRICE and I'm worried the redesign in the next 2 years is going to be too much of a radical change

2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

My review: Get the Nav system. Leatherette
is as good as leather but cheaper with less
maintence. Get the sunroof. The Septronic
AUTO is fun. Wish I had upgraded the
xenons. The upgrade from 325 to 330 is
expensive, but
there's a noticable power difference (esp.
with the AUTO). The 330Ci: perfect car for a
single guy. Surprisingly roomy for 4 adults,
rear seats fold down for two full golf sets or
luggage, perfect fun for road trips (esp with
the Nav). My advice, spend the extra dough
and get the Bimmer over the japanese cars.
There's just that extra pinache about driving
up in Bimmer that you do not get in
japanese cars.


Best Features

18" Wheels ($900--Bargain), Nav System (quite good and I've seen lots), Handling , Styling (Timeless).


Worst Features

Brake Dust, Cup Holder Design, More HP, Better Fuel Efficiency.

2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have a manual shift, and the shifting
seems to be a bit rough, other than
that, the car is perfect. Handling in
great. Will top 110 easily, top
movement is flawless and can be done at
a red light if timeing is right.


Best Features

love the power top, you push ONE button, and it's done


Worst Features

Manual shift could be smoother

2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Have owned Saabs, Porsches, Evos, Wrxs
&have to say BMW 3 series are the best
of the lot from fun, performance,
relialability, value . The list goes
on. Only sports sedan we would
have,including the Porsche which is
obviosly not a sedan. Best all round
performer.


Best Features

Quality, fit ,finish, relialability, fun to drive, great touring car or just a quick trip to the grocery store.


Worst Features

Navigation system could be a little easier to use
