325 - 185HP - 3200bs
330 - 225HP - 3350lbs
STi - 300HP - 3250lbs


They all have great handling, cost over $35k. Only 1 Of them has AWD lag. And 2 of them are the best handling cars in the world. Hard one... 330Ci!!

and ya know, for an Extra $6000 or so, You can proudly say you have a S/C'ed BMW with well over 300HP!! BMW gets better gas Milage, Looks better, Has a much better interior, and best of all.

the STI is a great car IMO but i love the 330, depending on how cheap i could get a 330 i would get the 330 but if the price wasnt right id buy a new STI

I have to admit, while I hated the looks of the original WRX, the minor cosmetic changes to the STI make it look not all that bad. I was in your shoes a few months ago and I opted for an 01 330ci. I wouldn't trade the car in for anything. Solid power, amazing handling, great looking and so many fun toys to play with...and it's a bmw, not a subaru...Not hatin' but the interior quality is something that matters to me.

In Love: 330ci</span>

Yeah the overall quality is 10 times better with the BMW. the STI is aweomse, but eh..

And like I said, for a few grand, you can say your S/Ced.. I jut installed a SCer on an 325 the other day.. SO SO Sweet..


Good luck with your decision.. You will always have a home her with either car you buy, you'll just getting more props for the BMW :-p.. just playing.. ha

If any of you E46er are interested, Im going to be offering the Euro CSL M3 suspension for sale. We just got a ton of kits in. they are all OEM.. very very very nice. I would put my money on this suspension against even a Bilstein PSS9 kit...

the 330 Has a bigger motor, and probably a few other small things that weight more...
