330i with Performance Package
By Fred on


2005 BMW 3 Series 330i Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


This is my second 330. The first one
had the performance package & cold
weather package. This one has leather
seats, Xenon headlights and heated
seats -- but no cold weather package --
I do miss the headlight washers and
drop down rear seat. However the
handling and acceleration of my new 330
is a quantum leap above my first one.
The 6 speed is much smoother and
shorter than the 5 speed. Whereas the
original had a softer ride, it had
more body lean -- in the 330i PP you
really feel much more in contriol as
you take tight corners at speed -- and
it defintiely sticks you back in the
seat when you accelelrate. They're
both great models --this as close to
an M3 as you can get with 4 doors

Best Features

short throw 6 speed, 18" wheels look sharp, feels like they added a lot more than 10 hp!!! leather sport seats and alcantera wheel are great

Worst Features

Make the drop down rear seat standard Remove the R/T buttons from the steering wheel -- not used
