"I own a 2003 BMW 330xi and it is a great car. I have loved driving it because of the look and feel while driving. It has great handling and is quick. The AWD is money in the snow and ice. I have drove it in up to 6 inchs of snow without snow tires and the car drives great. On clear roads it is fast and the manual transmission is very fun to operate. The coolant/antifreeze started leaking around 99,000 miles but it was just a loose hose so very easy fix and inexpensive. This is a really awesome fun car I am in my mid 20s and owned over 9 cars and this one has been my favorite!"

Better than current 3/4 series convertibles.

Cons: "froze up"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"This is a fun car to drive- in the SUMMER. Minnesota winters get downright frigid. This car froze up on me in the middle of nowhere on one of those freezing nights. I wasn't expecting this out of a German made vehicle. Apparently BMW wasn't either- the newer models have since been redesigned. My car has been "modified", and I've been assured that I won't have that problem again. There's a handy "limiter" for speed control, which I should have been utilizing one unfortunate day in 2014."

"We have a family owned 2001 325I. It's been a great car. A few mechanical repairs but nothing out of the ordinary for a fourteen year old car. We have an extended warranty still in place that has been valuable a few times since some repairs can be costly."
