BMW 3-Series Coupe 330 Ci 2d (00) (2001/X) - Owner Review

Certainly a driver's car, but refined to just the right extent. Those wanting TVR-type driving should look elsewhere.

BMW 3-Series Coupe (99-06)

Value

5 out of 5

Worth every penny: a real pleasure to drive, even to the supermarket.

Costs

4 out of 5

Not as costly to drive and maintain as people imagine.

Driving

5 out of 5

Certainly a driver's car, but refined to just the right extent. Those wanting TVR-type driving should look elsewhere.

Performance

4 out of 5

The 3-litre straight six engine is silky and powerful. The suspension is firm, but not brutally so.

Reliability

4 out of 5

One or two small problems - a dodgy door mechanism, but otherwise trouble-free.

Image

4 out of 5

Plenty of 3s about these days, but people are impressed, especially passengers.

Comfort

4 out of 5

It's a driver's car, but if you are concerned about the comfort of those in the back seats (I'm not!), buy the 5 series.

Security

4 out of 5

Like all modern cars, hard to break in and almost impossible to drive away. Thieves will break into your house and steal the spare keys instead.

Service

4 out of 5

They are scrupulous in following up service visits with a phone call from BMW to check customer satisfaction.
