Great Car
By Chris on


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


Simply put, this car is superb. It is a true driver's car as the connection to the road is unmatched and the handling/performance is on point. Purchased used; previous owner did not take proper care of the vehicle so I spent about $1000 to get the car in top shape; his loss, my gain as I got a great deal on the car to begin with. For those complaining about the firm ride, buy a Lexus, you will be much happier; this is not your car. For those complaining about the performance of the 325, it's a 325, what did you expect? Finally, for those complaining about the price and cost to maintain, its a BMW; if you can't appreciate the unparalleled driving experience, go buy an Acura or Infiniti.

Best Features

ZHP is a must for those who cannot get their hands on an M. This package adds parts, body pieces, and interior upgrades that really allow this car to stand out from other 3's. Premium sound is a must.

Worst Features

Higher quality headliner (falling down in rear, easy fix but annoying), higher quality coating on rims (peeling, common problem). Basically, take care of this car and it will take care of you. Preventative maintenance is a must; BMW "free" maintenance is inadequate.

FINALLY someone understands what this BMW is meant to be and that you can't try and make it something it isn't.
