"Great gas consumption, 33 highway 26 mixed driving. This car handles like a dream. The only problem so far is the fan switch which has failed which renders the ac unusable. This is a common problem and expensive to repair. This my third BMW the last one a 525 was traded after 16 years and 80k miles with minor issues. I am thinking of trading for the new x3 in 2015"

Pros: "Good value, power, handling, mpg"

Cons: "Lackluster interior and radio, expensive repairs"

"This E46 330ci hits a homerun in its suspension geometry that you get "The Ultimate Driving Machine" is not just marketing hype. The I6 engine has a broad torque curve that pulls hard from 3k rpm all the way to 6k. And the gearing is well suited with great pull in 4,5, and even 6th. All the goods where the goods matter. The problems: the interior, including the dash, is 10 years behind the times. While the brushed aluminum trim pieces in my example are a bright spot, they are overshadowed by the eye sore of a center console. The E46 is notorious for its electronic throttle that leaves a nasty hesitation at exactly 4k rpm if in Wide Open Throttle. The sound system, even their premium system from Harmon Kardan, is below sub par with no base what so ever. And beware it you have the factory Nav option bc the OEM encodes their radio signal via DSP that makes incompatible with most aftermarket radios. Some minor repairs between 65k-145k include ball joint failure, water pump failure, battery failure caused by slow leak in sunroof, and most recently cracked antifreeze reservoir. Be prepared for hefty repair bills and massively expensive parts. Oil changes are $100 thanks to synthetic oils. All-in-all, you get a lot of value for the money. And in the past 5 years of owning it, I've averaged 23mpg all city mile commuting."
