Having a midlife crisis?
By topdownbadboy on


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


I'm still smiling after 400 new car
miles. The 330cic clutch grabbed too
high for my liking; the 5speed
Steptronic was the best way to go for
me. This car is strong and wants to
go. There are several defects on my
vehicle. My vehicle has Premium
Package, Sport Package, heated seats,
and metallic paint. The dealer cut
the price by about $1,600 off MSRP,
included rubber BMW floor mats and
wheel locks. This car is not made for
bigger people, people 250+ lbs. and
taller than 6-2 ought to think twice
about this car. Top down driving is
great at 40F, 70mph on the freeway.
It's difficult to keep this car around
the speed limit.

Best Features

Handling is great. Sound system very good. Sport seats easy to get comfortable. Automatic top works well.

Worst Features

Delivery quality and option level is not what it should be at the premium price level. I would have purchased the manual gearbox if the clutch engagement point was closer to the floorboards - like most normal sports machines. Radio reception could be improved.
