Does anyone know what the actual 0-60 of a stock 330ci auto is?

the best ive seen for a 330ci was 5.8 manual and 6.7 auto, but those were from two different magazines. i think an average time is around 6.2 manual and 7.0 auto

These are offical BMW times for 330ci:

Manual : 6.8 sec

Auto: 7.4 Sec

Yes they are pretty slow, deloriants E36 328i beats a 330ci. Also a jetta 1.8T would probably nail a 330ci.

nope offical times are 5.86 and 6.45 i tested them myself and used GPS and a laptop to get the times and this place i race at. A jetta 1.8t wouldnt stand a chance, a gold VR6 6 speed cant even beat an auto. Also an R32 has a hard time beating a 6 speed but one can do it.

330xi & a ZHP, both manual, will hit it around 5.9 - 6.0, according to MotorTrend. Motortrend clocked a 330i STEP @ 6.7, which i I think is very accurate.

Hi!! I've read that 330i manual can do it in around 6.1 seconds so a 330Ci manual can definetly do it in at least 6.1 seconds. Auto 330Ci probably does it in 6.8 seconds.

Thanks.
BYE.

Let me settle this for you then, I used a G-Tech on a track last year to check out the time, it was a 330ci manual, premium and sports package, no PP.

I did 3 runs, fastest was a 6.3 with 1/4 mile 14.4 sec. and that was the only one I managed not to spin the tires excessively, I pushed first gear all the way to the redline and hit 60 in the second gear. The other two runs I had really sh_tty launches and only managed 7.0 or so. So auto, probably add on about 0.5 sec or so, around 7.0 would be just about right. With a performance package, I think sub 6.0 for manual is definitely possible.

When I was looking to buy mine, this is what I found for consensus:

330 Auto = 6.9-7.0
325 Manual = 7.0-7.1

So I figured it would cost me about $5,000 - $6,000 to save .1 seconds and not have to shift. (I know, I know, there are other differences but I'm talking performance wise.) But I like to shift and I can live with the .1 seconds so I went with the 325.

I've clocked a 6.8 with a GTech on mine (325i / man / bone stock) but I usually hit about 7.1 - 7.3. (I'm not that good!)

I do like the stump puller 1st gear on this car, gets you off the line quick which is usually what matters.

My previous car was a C5 Hardtop (manual) and my personal best with that was 5.18 but I know people who got < 5 with a few minor mods. Not the most practical car in Minnesota, but on the other hand, it didn't lose coolant like my BMW has been!
