2002 BMW 3 Series 330i Sport/Premium 3.0 In-line 6 from North America
BEST CAR EVER! I'LL BE BUYING THE NEW 330i NEXT YEAR!
The only thing that has gone wrong with the car is that the moon roof got stuck on closing once... not sure why. Luckily it was under the 100,000 mile warranty and they paid to have it repaired with no deductible! Other than that... Perfect!
The 330i Sport is nothing short of FREAKING AWESOME!
The handling is superb and woops other high performance cars that I've driven in the past that were "known" for their handling. Beats them hands down!
Great get up and go... I love smoking all those punks who think their V6 Mustang is something great. It does 0-60 right about 6 seconds flat. MotorTrend clocked it at 5.9!
Great gas mileage! I drove from Omaha, NE to Roseville, CA and averaged 31 mpg! That includes the Sierra Nevada Mts, and going against the wind most of the time!
Above all, the car just looks sexy. It's important to own a car you love... a car you've gotta name because it's so awesome. I LOVE IT! (His name's Jake by the way)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Thanks for sharing your experiences!
You are absolutely right, IT is important to own a car that you truly love... otherwise you end up not caring about it... similar to a person.
I don't love my current ride, but still have fond memories of my last MB... :)

Yes, more people should buy the cars that they are passionate about instead of buying something crappy just because it is a "good deal." I know sooo many people who have done this and they ALWAYS wind up griping about how much they hate their car. I do not find myself walking around complaining about my BMW as I feel like it has looked after me so well.

Yeah, these are not Hyundais... I drive American cars myself, but one should drive something nice, safe and reliable. I like cars to have a smooth ride, rather than tight handling because of all the interstate travel I do, and large GM cars fit that bill. However sometimes I wish for a little more sport with the smooth ride. What I wonder is how these beemers drive on rough road, can't have a bumpy riding car.

I've had a few BMWs, and they all drive smooth. They don't crash around like you might expect. Do your research before buying, and you will not be disappointed.
Avoid runflat tyres, not everyone will agree, but that is my opinion.
