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


Review

The BMW 330Ci is an outstanding car.
Great looking and comfortable, it
provides amazing performance in every
category. The brakes let you "stop on
a dime" without a fuss. The
acceleration is really exciting and
you'll have passengers asking you to
slow down before you even reach your
desired speed. The cornering is beyond
what you thought possible. Four
six-foot people find comfort in its
supple leather seats while the trunk
provides a lot of space. When the top
is up, you're in a very comforting and
quiet vault. And, even though it is a
convertible, the ride is as solid and
commanding as you'd expect in any high-
performance BMW.


Best Features

Great appearance, terrific acceleration, superb braking, easy 360 degree visibility, wonderful creature comforts (including roominess and seating comfort), and all-around amazing handling make this car one solid "favorite feature". Wow!

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


Review

Great car, rides well and is a true
pleasure...

My first one was a lemon back at the
end of 2003, the dealer exchanged it
for the 2004 refreshed model with no
fee charged to me. I would have to
say the BMW buying experience is
wonderfull and they are very helpfull
if you end up at the right dealer
(e.g. Stevens Creek BMW not Allison
BMW).

Ride is great, and comfy. The most
amazing things is when you throw it
into a curve with a sharp turn at high
speeds it sticks like glue on the
road. Try that with your Mercedes and
you'll end up off the cliff!


Best Features

GPS Navigation has no loading time to calculate your route. Not as advanced as Japanese cars persay, but better than any German car except for the 5 & 7 series with iDrive. Mercedes E320 & Porsche 911 (which I both own) can't hold a candle to this nav system.


Worst Features

Needs flame surfaced design. When placed next to other BMW's it the design seems aged, although very nice and effective.

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


Review

After owning muscle type cars for most
of my life, I decided to see what the
rave was all about with the 330i.
After driving the 330i Performance
Package, I was left speechless. There
was no way that I just got done driving
a four door car, the handling and
performance was unbelievable for the
type of car that it is. Now, in place
of my 350Z sits an Imola Red 330i.
This is the best car that I have owned
by far.


Best Features

Beautiful interior, alcantra cloth steering wheel, fliud shifter, turbine smooth engine, fighter-plane handling, that deep red paint


Worst Features

Cap the price, this may be the last one I own if BMW's prices keep going up. Additional horsepower would be nice, say 333...hint...hint, please don't mess up the styling on the new ones!

Review

I just purchased my car and I am in
love - sounds pretty silly, but it is
the truth. The car is fun to drive and
I feel very safe in my new car. All
around the new BMW 3 series is a 10!


Best Features

interior design, comfort, driving, speed, style, character, color, safety


Worst Features

Take the cigarette lighters and ash trays out of new cars. The back seat could use more leg room. More compartments (storage). Different style of the look of dash board, radio, air conditioner etc.
