Holy Shiznit!! I bought my wife a 2005 black 330Ci Convertible with the Performance package and can't believe how awesome this car is. I race a 9 second Camaro and owned a 10 second '97 Trans Am street car. This bimmer is as much fun to drive as either of those. Not as fast but the handling is otherworldly. I've never driven anything that felt so competent in corners.
I drive a '04 Ford F-250 Super Duty turbo diesel and love that truck but I'm now thinking M3, M5 or even M6 in the near future. Never thought I'd find myself posting in a BMW forum but....................BMWs friggin' rule. We were going to buy a 'Vette until I saw a gentleman break the rearend in his '05 leaving the line at the drags at 2,000 rpm on street tires. That shouldn't have happened. I lost my confidence in the 'Vette right there.
Anyhoo, I'm a BMW fan now. I have seen the light.
Now I just have to figure out what all the little buttons do....................
