I let a 328ci slip outta my hands a couple of weeks ago so I decided to drive to this little dealership today and found 2 really nice BMWs. Both are 330Ci's for the exact same price, and I can't decide on which one. You guys are great people to ask for advice so I figured I'd come here. The red one has 42,000 or so miles, 50,000 mile warranty, fully loaded with heated seats, here's the link

The second one is a white 330ci, every option but no heated seats. 56,000 or so miles, and no current warranty. It also has a small bunch of scratches which are barely visible on the right front corner, here's the link

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Definitely drive them both and see which one feels better...You might want to look at the '02's for a a little more $. The newer body style is worth the extra cash...

I really wish I had the extra money...my original price range was 20,000 or close to, and the dealership has agreed to $22,800 for either one. I drove them both, the white one seems to be a little stronger in acceleration/performance...like it has a little more balls than the red one but I just can't argue with the warranty and fewer miles on the red car.

even though i really like white 330ci's, it sounds like the red one is much better, less milage, warrenty, and heated seats, i love my heated seats.

so if you don't car about the color, you should go with the red one, in my opinion

well after carefull study, I have a question, does the white one have xenons?

Id say, the 8000miles left of warrantyin the Red one arent worth it at that point, whetever problem it has the dealer theoretically has to deal with it first, Id have it checked by a mechanic....

But go for the white one...looks wise, its a lot tighter, but tell the dealer, that you would like to see what can be done about the chis and scratches....they have ways....

If they actually agree to deal with the paint...tell them to paint the bumper in the same pattern as mine...check the sig.... you will not regret it...

GO FOR THE WHITE!!!!

make sure you have a good mechanic that can deal with them, and have a great time!!!

The Red one doesn't have the sport package, the white ones does. That would be enough for me to choose the white one, even though I don't care for white cars, especially ones with tan or grey interior. White on black would be better, but still.......
