    2002 BMW 330 - RWD Coupe

    Pros: The noise (s ) coming from the muffler.

    Cons: The monthly payment

    Advice: Shop at least two dealers and go with the people who treat you right.

    The 3.0 Engine is a jewel! It is smooth as silk and has so much torque from almost zero RPMs..I am delighted with the 330Ci, I got the manual transmission and mated to the sweet sounding engine I feel like Schumacher almost every moring when I drive to work. I tried the steptronic auto and tried to convince myself of it's merits, but...I just think if your 'in' for a car like this get the 'Real' version with a stick..To heck with the traffic jam excuse.The sports package is a must also..Even if only for the seats and white lights.My only regret is not getting the 18 inch wheels - But it is hard to imagine how this car could handle a bend any better than it does. There's a 360 degree Interstate ramp near where I live that I go 2 miles out of my way just so I can exit the appex at 70 mph in third with not even a hint of tire screeching or drama of any kind..it's such a blast to pass geeks in (Toyota) IS 300'S & assorted other fake sports cars in this fashion!.My last car was a 99' M3 which I missed for about a week until I really got to know this super fast grand tourer.Such luxury & quality but can dust 90% of the other sport/luxury type cars out there in the traffic light grand prix. In summary: The looks of the car are a design masterpiece..Very easy on the eye..Performance is great and really makes a regular driver like myself feel exhilerated just by driving to work. I also recomend that you get the Bi-Xenon lights, a great driver saftey feature & nothing to do with the fact that they look cool. Mine has the new Natural brown two-tone Interior with is so rich & Alpine white paint...such a refreshing change from Silver! Enjoy..But don't let this car turn you into a certified car geek as sadly it has done to me.

    2002 BMW 330 - RWD Coupe

    Pros: Steptronic tranny and the sound system

    Cons: 17' wheels too small

    Advice: buy it ASAP

    Bought my 2001 coupe in September and have been more excited each time I get behind the wheel. Supple smooth engine and an auto steptronic that really works. I only wish it came with the 18' wheels when I bought it.

    2002 BMW 330 - RWD Coupe

    Pros: Performance and handling. It's just a great driving experience.

    Cons: No cup holders in the rear seat area

    Advice: Get the sports Pkg.

    I bought my 330Ci in late 2000 and now almost 18 months later I don't regret it one bit. I have added Dinan performance products which has elevated a great car to another level at a minimal cost and is still covered under warranty. It just blows the competition away. It is now a wolf in sheeps clothing except for the Dinan 3 deck lid badge it proudly displays.Jimmy J., Houston ,Tx.

    2002 BMW 330 - RWD Coupe

    Pros: Side mirror tilts down when backing up.

    Cons: Couldn't find a thing I didn't absolutely enjoy.

    Advice: Buy one. You are missing out!!!!

    The attention to detail and performance of this coupe is unbelievable. You get a lot for the money spent. This car puts the Mercedes coupe to shame.

    2002 BMW 330 - RWD Coupe

    Pros: Performance: Powerful & Nimble. Gives the driver utmost confidence.

    Cons: The 2 month wait for it to arrive ... sheer torture!!!

    Advice: Don't waste your money on the leather. Standard leatherette is identical and will wear better over time. Spend the $ on the navigation system

    C320, IS300, TL S-type, A4... I drove them all. The 330Ci Coupe has them all beat by a longshot. I was only auditioning cars as a potential replacement for a current lease that will be coming due this summer. After experiencing the comfort and hair-on-fire performance of the 330, I placed my order on the spot. I simply couldn't wait another 4 months. Honestly, I've never been this impressed with a car during a test drive.
