Another Happy Houston guy
Recently picked up a 2003 330Cic with 65K on it. Black with biege interior, sport seats and automatic. Traded in my Acura TL type S with 140K miles. Surprised at how quiet the car is for a convertible. so far, so good... on day one, the windshield coolant leaked out... bad pump, but was replaced by the seller at no cost... on day two, noticed some oil leaking on my driveway... took it back and they put new oil pan gasket on ($450 his cost!!).
I enjoy autocrossing, but I think I'll stick to using my 240sx convertible with a JDM sr20det transplant with 300+rwhp (s15 turbo, z32 maf, 660 injectors, tune, 3 inch exhaust, kyb-agx shocks, megan springs, etc)..
Do wish it had the navigation, but that's a pain to swap out... probably just add a Garmin..
Previous Bimmers include: 2002tii, 318is, 635csi, 530i, and now a 330cic..
