3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
the new a4's looking pretty worth it for its cost. probably around 33-34g range. do yall think its possible to pick up a new 05 330ci for around the same price when the 06 bimmers roll in? what dealerships do yall recommend in nor cal?
I apologize in advance for being blunt but, wtf I'm sorry the audi's are just dressed up VW's to me and while they seem a value they're an enginering disaster. Stick with the 330 please, you'll be happy you did. BTW have you test driven them both yet? As far as them price, no way unless it's bare bones and some ugly freakin color they can't get rid of.
P.S. had this same dilema about 3 months ago that's why I mentioned the whole test drive thing. Also I don't remember Audi giving or even offering a maitence plan. Best of luck again and have fun with it... if the guy at the bimmer dealership doesn't take you on a kick ass test drive find someone different, they're supposed to show off every aspect of the car including it's legendary "feel" at high speeds... 100mph feels like 40mph.
gotta follow that crowd my freind, the bimmers are somthing else. Many times i have been goin about 150k without knowing it. There wicked cars! The audi's also look nice or better in some aspects but there not bimmers! Get the new 330i's that are coming out.
I have an '04 330ci w/ Perf. Package, and I absolutely love my car. I've driven my friends STi, GTO, G35 coupe. The only other car that gives me a better feeling than mine is an M3. But then again...it's only a more powerful version of a 330. Go for it man, you can go wrong with a 330.
P.S. Go for a manual tranny you'll like it better, and if you wanna mod, you have the problems the steptronics do.
