I run 17" wheels in the winter on snow tires.
The ride is SO much more comfortable than my 135s ... Also, the roads in Philly are probably the worst ever.

Buy whichever car has three pedals.
If they're both manuals, go for the 330i. Bigger brakes, more power. What's left to discuss?

The guy drove a 6-cylinder 335, not a 328. That said, the 2-liter turbo 4 is seriously smooth and surprisingly quick... I'd just take it in a 2-Series instead of the F30.

I had a Dinan long-tube intake and a Rogue Ikon exhaust on my old 330ci; there was a little bit of drone, but it sounded fantastic.

I tapped an M3 shift knob into the window switch, since it was closer and my wires were shorter. It also dims with the dimmer.

I'll probably look into an M5 knob after winter. OP, post pictures...

Just got mine for my 11/2003 330i, though the dealer told me last month it probably wouldn't be affected.

Oh well. Can't wait to drive a lame, automatic 320i for a couple of days!

Ditch the (not M3) rims; keep the OEM Aero kit.

It's kinda ugly, but rare ... which makes it kinda cool. You don't see them that often.

Having owned a 330ci before owning a 330i, I would say that my dog enjoys the sedan better. I also get more thumbs up from my sedan from strangers for some reason.

I would never mangle my trunk to fit a 4-outlet exhaust.

And, for what it's worth, I think the exhaust note on my lowly 330 sounds better than that of the E46 M3.

Nice 330 in the correct color :P

If the ZHP is a 6 speed, why not put on some lighter wheels and track it occasionally ?
