This is my first BMW! Glad I made the buy. Love he look and all of the bells! BMW should re-think the run flats! Give a rough ride for a BMW, need to have another option, overall, once you are rolling you forget about the tires. Great on gas, and it turns alot of heads, that's if they can keep up with you! (lol) The car really live up to its name. I'll check back in at the next rest stop!...read morehide

- handling, performance, comfort seats rain sen wipers lights blinkers etc
- none discovered yet
I have driven Corvettes but with the birth of my first son, I wanted to enter into more the sport/luxury car instead of raw HP performance go cart. I looked at Lexus, Infinity, Mercedes and BMW. NOTHING compares to the European cars, NOTHING. I chose a 330i as an entry, first vehicle and love it. If you are looking for a car between $35000-$45000 it simply can not be beat. I would have never thought I would be saying this but "buying a German build car was the best thing I could have ever done"....read morehide

- Great car to drive. Exceptional Highway MPG
- BMW Service. Back seat is uncomfortable to sit in.
I have owned this car since it first came out in May of 2005. This is a great driver's car. The biggest problem that I have with this car is BMW of North America and BMW Service. Despite their claim of commitment to Customer Satisfaction, I am here to tell you that both just flat out don't care. I have had so many little problems that would take to long to list. If I took my car in to BMW Service for the "little problems" every time they come up, the car would be in the shop 3-4 times a month. Now I just wait until they accumulate and then take it in. How much is your time worth? Then when the "Big Problems" come up and you are not satisfied with your BMW Service Dept., try talking to BMW of North America. They will always refer you back to your local BMW Servce Dept.. They don't want to hear it! Both BMW of North America and your local BMW Service Dept. will just wear you out until you become numb. Obviously, that is what they are good at. This was a waste of $45,000!...read morehide

- Bluetooth, Xenon Headlights, Fast, Body Style, Door Handles that Light Up, and a Whole Lot More!!!
- Inferior interior style, brake pads worn out at 10k miles, Trunk would not open!
I had a '04 Audi A4 that was worthless for what I've paid for & what the dealership was buying it for as a trade to my BMW. Got a real good deal on the 330i that I have now. I bought the dealership's demo car for $37k, with 9k miles and premium package. Really good car, with a few minor flaws. I also don't like the guy who sold me the vehicle, not very reliable & his after-sales service was very poor. He promised to look for the extra keys but never did so I'm stuck with one. God forbid I lose it!
Minor Flaws: Had to run the car back to the dealership after 10k miles, breaks squealing. Brought it back the 2nd time, still squealing. A week after, have to bring it back to the dealership, the trunk would not pop open, wiring problems according to the service tech.
Pros: Gas mileage is ok, Xenon lights came standard with model and follows when you steer, door handles light up, Bluetooth with voice dial, Auxilliary hook up, can't hear the wind when sunroof is tilted, heated seats, can't tell when you're driving 120 on the freeway, good depreciation value and my insurance was $10 less/mo compared to A4....read morehide

- Good fuel economy
- Tires worn out at 10,000 miles, dsc sensor bad from day one, courtesy entry broken at 4,000 miles
Before you buy a 2006 325i you better make sure it doesn't have Bridgestone tires with the sport package. The tires will be shot at 10,000 miles and you'll be stuck with a $2,500 bill to fix it. Piece of junk and I'm screwed for the next 2 1/2 years of my lease!

- looks great, love auto transmission, brakes, turning radius
- sunroof not work without motor running
i do like my car, 19 months, 28000miles, has had some oil change computer issues, dont feel comfortable at a 14,000 oil change, and oh yes, dont forget to check your oil in ur computer, it will use some before the oil change. I had an air bag issue with passenger front seat, mine is black with tan leather, have to say the options list is sort of silly, do i really need to pay for a winter package to get a pass through door to the trunk, and over 40k no heated seats, i put chrome wheels on,looks great, put all season tires on it, i live in kansas with a bit of snow, helps alot in snow or ice, I will say when i am out of town for a few days, i miss driving my car. Sounds like maybe i am not happy, just being honest here, but yes i do like my car alot, also love fact that BMW changes their bodies infrequently, so hope to have a new looking 330 for many years. I do like the way the car drives, love the tranny, the brakes, the turning radius, but need to allow sunroof to work without motor running, get 31 mpg on highway at 80 with air on. Prior car was a 350z. which was my fourth Z, i miss the look, but not the overall drive. Anyone have any experience on warrantied work, brakes, rotors? Cant believe i have 28k miles on it already, but have enjoyed the drive. thanks...read morehide

- sleek, sporty appearance, great handling, lots of standard features,
- none that I can find
Without a doubt, the best car I have ever owned. Fun to drive and easy to handle. Love driving it at top speed on the interstate, or just zipping around town. Had a 1995 325i and couldn't wait to get another one. Don't own one if you don't like attention, this car turns heads wherever I go.......read morehide
