2004 BMW 3 Series 330xi 3.0L I6 from North America
This is the most fun I have ever had driving a car!
Only had the vehicle for 1 month and it is the most enjoyable car I have ever had. Driving is a blast, and this thing flies out of the gate in 'S' mode. Nothing inside this vehicle makes a noise... I have punched the gas and driven over gravel, and I cannot get the interior to squeak or rattle!
I pray it has no mechanical issues down the road as I plan regular maintenance care. If this vehicle provides me the driving enjoyment over the next year as I have recently experienced, I will never buy another make beyond BMW.
We are now planning to trade our second vehicle in for a 2007 330xi next week.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Last month one of the car magazines, Automobile or MotorTrend I think, said the 3 series BMW were pretty reliable (I think they said "bulletproof") except for the all wheel drive models. Since you will have two all wheel drive models, I hope you can keep us updated on what your experiences are. My neighbor has had his grey 328xi in the shop 3 times in the last 12 months. We always know because that is when he has the bright red loaner car from the dealership.
Choosing bright red for the loaner car was probably not the best idea the dealership ever had.
