I bought my 330ci 2003 used-only has 95000 kms on it with a full bmw history when purchased. For a 10 year old car since it was the update model most people assume it's only a a few years old or even new! I have m sport package with auto transmission. The mechanic said underneath it still looks new and appears to be on original running gear. It's just the complete classy car- interior is simple and elegant, much nicer than the newer interiors which don't cut it for me looks wise. Basic and… Read Full Review

My car is now ten years old having bought it new in July 2003. It was a facelift model finished in Mystic Blue with light tan leather and light wood trim. fitted with sports seats, power sun roof, tint glass, centre arm rest business radio c/d and M pack from new. now with 64000 miles under it,it still drives like new and looks close to new. The only replacements beyond service items are a new set of suspension bushes. This has proved the most reliable, fun car possible.It is now our third… Read Full Review

Fun Fun Fun...Fun to drive, strong power plant with plenty of instant zoom at your finger tips.Fun in the twisties, corners like a dream..the tighter the better, preferable slicing thru the mtns. Fun to look at.. clean lines,beautiful styling, makes you smile each time you enter the garage and every time you turn the key. The black leather interior,stainless trim,major controls on leather wrapped steering wheel put the awesome sound quality of the Harmon Kardon stereo with it's powerful amp and… Read Full Review

I have owned my BMW for just over 2 months now. It is only my second car & I am over the moon with it. Literally one of the most pleasurable vehicles I have driven & I have driven a few being a Technician. From the second you climb in to the car you have a smile. The leather steering wheel being so much thicker to grip on to than other cars & the interior so is so comfortable & well built... I still love the black lined roof! As you would expect the performance is amazing. From a stand still… Read Full Review

Hi, bought this recently having driven a 318 ,320, 325, 520. The car is what you expect a prestige, luxury car with class oozing outside, one thing I wasn't expecting the ssg gearbox to be this disappointing. I have been a manual driver in the city all my life and I first thought I wouldn't miss it that much, well the auto mode is so stupid sometimes it changes gears when least expected and from 2nd to 3rd gear is instant. I tried my best to work out a driving style but most of the time I… Read Full Review

I brought my first 330ci M Sport in 2006 it was 2 1/2 years old and replaced my 2000 325 ci convertible.... and what a replacement it was the power difference was staggering the styling was superb I missed nothing from having a hard top, everything was great until I hit 50,000 miles and the automatic gearbox went on me... £2500 for a fix or £4000 for a new gear box.
Since then I have read plenty of reviews and perhaps I was just very unlucky still I opted to part ex the car for a X5 which I… Read Full Review

Bought a 2005 330ci Sport in September 2009. A lot of people seem to say this is an amazing car, and so far I would agree in terms of the performance. On my route to work, just as I'm leaving the town I live in, there's a 90 degree bend which needs to be taken at a careful 15mph, and once round it the road becomes glorious wide straight country road... perfect for kicking down. Personally I find the accerlation exhilarating! I've only owned 3 cars previous to this; A 1980 MKII 1600 Escort, an… Read Full Review

I had my 330Ci for 5 months before I got the ECU remapped. I dropped a better air filter and it goes great now. Nothing against an M3 but still can keep up with the best of them. The 330Ci looks good even without the sport package and the handling is awesome even with the traction control completely off... I had an Audi A4 1.8T before and swore I would never get anything but a turbocharged car after but 2 rides out in the bimmer and I was sold. Every gear seems to pull just as hard and I am… Read Full Review

I bought my 330Ci second hand. It's a 2001 manual 5 speed with 74,000miles. The thing I like most is the comfortable interior with TV, Sat Nav ,DVD, heated seats,, a must have with leather, that are electric with 3 memory settings apart from a couple of annoying rattles.
A lot of people say the car is very fast, I found that it could do with a bit more power as the car is heavyish although it's not slow. I feel it would benefit having a lsd. Handling is great, you feel very connected to the road… Read Full Review

The BMW 3 Series 330 Ci Coupe is a great car, just a step below the highly tauted M3. When I first took this car out I was surprised with the low end torque that the motor put out. I have the manual 5 speed which makes driving fun, especially when going into turns, keep the rpms up and you feel you are in a rocket ship. I have the premium and sport package which I highly recommend. I love the leather seats which are very comfortable and very supportive. The back seat of the car is adequate my… Read Full Review

I have had my BMW 330 Ci Coupe for 4 months now and just love it! I did install the Dinan S1 program. It has a great engine and handles great on the road. I love the sporty upper class looks.
The only bad points are that the doors do not close easily and the steering wheel needs to be lower… Read Full Review

I have now owned a new 330i coupe sports for about 2 months. Previously I have owned a VR6 corrado, Alfa Romeo 156 V6 and a few other lowly cars. I have to say, however, that the BMW is by far the most exciting and enjoyable car I have owned up to now. The handling is spot on, although the steering did feel a little light initially. Little things like auto windscreen wipers, auto headlights, the way the passenger wing mirror dips when you select reverse all make the ownership experience really… Read Full Review

I can't believe this car! I once owned a Porsche 914. It's a real low-end Porsche, but I used to love to go out on the freeways just so I could spin around the exit ramps at 80-mph with both hands on one side of the wheel. Well, this car is 1000-times better!
All the sportiness, control, engine growl and speed plus luxury and a 12-speaker sound system (though I keep it real low so I can hear the engine)!
You sit low to the ground like in a Porsche and you feel and hear everything. Yet… Read Full Review

This automobile is a truly spectacular thing. I have driven Hondas and Acuras most of my life. The 330i sport/premium is superior not in the sense of its numerical credentials - such as the Mitusubishi Lancer Evolution - but rather in the way the car feels, sounds and communicates with the driver. It is a liason between you and the road. In this sense, it is superb. The car has a 50/50 weight ratio - thus perfect balance, good low end torque, and superb suspension componentry which makes… Read Full Review

I've had my '02 330 Ci (manual) for just over a year, and now that the thrill of owning my first high-end car has mellowed, I feel I can write an more objective review for prospective purchasers than the one I posted on this site a year ago.
First, let me say that I still think this a truly amazing total package. With a few extra options, the luxury level is top-notch for a car of its size and class, and tends to olverwhelm first-time passengers: most of the people who've been in it compare… Read Full Review

2001 BMW 330 CI with 30k, STALLS!!! No, it's not the driver. At low RPM in first or second gear the rpm's drop, then the car dies. Does not happen all the time, but frequently enough. The dealer can't find any problem, so I am stuck with a defective BMW. Ain't life grand… Read Full Review
