German reliability is an oxymoron

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


My car with the 6 speed performance package is probably the most fun to drive machine on the road. The handling is superb and the engine growl is great. Ride is a bit stiff, but that should be expected from a true sport sedan. I've had a number of warranty repairs and I sometimes question if I made the right choice. I definitely will dump this car for something more reliable when the warranty is up, even though I'd really like to keep it. The thought of needing to pay the frequent repair bills is frightening.

Best Features

Handling, quick short throw 6 speed shifter, engine growl, comfortable sport seats, and the exterior styling. More head turns than any other car that I've owned.

Worst Features

IMPROVE RELIABLITY. Dump the Harman Kardon stereo.
