BMW 3-Series Coupe 330 Ci Sport 2d Auto (01) (2001/Y) - Owner Review

Great drive. The M-tec sport kit really adds to the look and most importantly feel of the car with 8 way adjustable sport seats and a very very meaty steering wheel indeed... a joy to hold!

BMW 3-Series Coupe (99-06)

Value

4 out of 5

If you find the right one with a unique specification of equipment, I think it'll hold it's price that bit longer... Mine's silver... got red leather and most importantly the sunroof, the effect in summer is awesome, it's so unique, not many around!

Costs

3 out of 5

Well, the costs are relative to what I'd expect to pay, but saying that, there's been nothing out of the blue (touch wood) that need concern me - the warranty's just run out! And the service intervals are pretty far apart IMHO.

Performance

4 out of 5

She's a beast... rearing to go... a great meaty throaty sound effect from the exhaust when you first take off, apart from that the powerhouse delivers constantly and gives you enough power to hold your own should you want to (0-60 6.5ish).

Reliability

4 out of 5

No problems whatsoever... have been slightly angered by a few rattles in passenger door that dealer took 4 attemps to resolve, but all fine for the moment. (PS: off topic, make sure you get the harmon kardon 10 speaker system).

People have preconceptions about BMW drivers... none that I've felt personally, but just from what I've heard! But it's a decent motor - we're not pretentious, just minding our own business!

Comfort

4 out of 5

Hmm. Slight trade-off with the sport package. The suspension is it tighter, the ride less comfortable. You're so in touch with the road that you sometimes feel more of it... which is sometimes good, sometimes not so good, but I prefer it.

Security

Standard BMW immobiliser and alarm... auto close or open of all open windows and sunroof (expect rear passenger ones which are also electric).

Service

3 out of 5

Service from the BMW dealer (Heathrow). Umm no real complaints... nothing to boast about either.
