in my 2002 and 2003 brochures it says the 330ci manual does it in 6.4sec. however ive seen several magazines get 5.8sec, aswell as 5.7 with a sedan. not that the sedan is faster, just in identical conditions the Ci could probably do 5.7 aswell

I have an 02 330I manual trans. and my wife has an 02 RSX type S. Not that we have raced, but my car feels faster all around especially as speed increases. I do enjoy driving her car, especially since I used to have an Integra GSR, but after driving my old 328i and now my 330i I don't think I could go back to driving the high revving, no power down low 4 cylinder everyday. I do love the 8,000 RPM shifts though, but it does get annoying after a while.

The highest I've seen is 5.9 as well, in C & D a few years ago (I remember it was a dark green 330Ci). Generally, 0-60 times are in the low to mid 6's. The 5.7 0-60 time was in a 2003 330i with the performance package (extra 10 HP). Did you order the PP - it's available on coupes and convertibles for '04?

In comparison, an RSX-S and a 330Ci are pretty close in performance, however the 330 will feel 10X more powerful. The Type S is a great car though - I considered buying one to replace my Integra GS-R. It's just too bad it barely had enough torque to open a pickle jar.

Woobiee is correct - the performance package IS available for '04 Coupes and Convertibles - I've read this is several publications, including the most recent Car and Driver.

Just as I thought - the PP will be available on '04 Coupes and Convertibles, but not until the March production run. JDM - you ordered your car too soon :wink

I haven't read anything about USA only, Canada only, etc., so I would assume you can order the package in either country. Retail price is still $3900.00
