My Ride: 2001 330xi
New member here!

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to introduce myself since I'm going to be the owner of a 2001 330xi pretty soon. Not to bring anyone down but I received this car after my father passed away about three weeks ago and I was torn between selling my current daily driver - 2004 Honda Accord Coupe V6 6MT (104k miles) and this one (92k miles). I decided to go with the BMW for the AWD and hopefully sound reliability - that's something I hope I won't miss from the Honda.

I currently have:

2010 Chevy Camaro SS (My toy)
2004 Honda Accord Coupe V6 (Selling)
2001 BMW 330xi (Daily Driver)

A few points of concern on this car - if anyone can chime in that these are common problems or concerns, I'd appreciate it. Otherwise I have no problem searching:

Shifter sticking to far right (5th gear)
Clutch seems a bit high
Transmission/drivetrain makes a thud/clunk noise when releasing the clutch
Steering wobbles between 45 and 55 mph (control arm bushings?)
Dash does not look double din friendly - any way to do that without hacking the vent?
