Buy a radar detector.... lol. I just bought a 2002 330xi one week ago with 16000 Kilometres (around 10,000 miles) on the dial. I live in Vancouver and took it to the top of one of our local ski hills here (Mount Seymour) and it was snowing - about 6 inches. The snow here is wet and slippery and I had a blast in it. My salesman assured me you don't need snows on the car; he used to drive his to Whistler and back all the time. He picked up a 325xi as a demo last week as well for the winter period so he could drive to Whistler for the skiing season.
| IF you have more than two drivers in the family, order an extra FOB or two, you'll regret passing off the FOB to other members of the family. The FOB remembers your seat position, external mirror positions and your internal cab temperature of the last person to use it; by rotating the FOB, you are forever adjusting the seats, etc unless you remember to use the buttons on your driver seat. We have three drivers in our family and I am still waiting on the extra FOB to arrive. |
| You might want the cd player you can get in the trunk, its more enjoyable since it can hold up to 6 cd's. If there is one short coming with the 3 series cars is the lack of storage space in the cab and the only location for cd's inside your car is in the glove compartment. A LITTLE KNOWN FACT: Depending on your dealer, you can get a "used" cd player that they have taken from a returned leased vehicle for around half price and have it installed. This is a good time of the year to do this as many lease backs are returning. |
ANOTHER POINT OF TRIVIA: The 3 series is the most bought BMW car. The 5 series is the most leased car.

Have the dealer program your key to the settings you like for the daytime running lights, door locks, seat position, etc.

There IS IS IS a breakin period, the salesguy will tell you there isn't, but it's in your user manual and in the video they give you. If I remember correctly you shouldn't take it over 100mph or over 4500 RPM for the first 1200 miles. Have fun with the car, I love mine!

Here in the United States radar detectors are only illegal in Virginia and Washington, D.C.* Connecticut recently repealed it's prohibition on detectors.* Everywhere else in the US they're legal.
Upon picking up my new 2004 325xi I bought an Escort S2 wireless radar/laser detector and it performs very well.
