330CI v.s. 330CI M

do you guys think the CI M worth the extra $3500? I've ordered a 330ci with sport package.. but still have the chance to change...

Personally, I think that $3500 is alot of money for other mods.

IMO yes, go with the upgrade, unless you are planning on changing the wheels and the kit out. Plus you get a nice interior, Alcantera (sp?). So fuzzy and warm! It's worth it, my brother, Zerofighter, works at a dealership here in Calgary and everytime he bring's a car home with the M-Sport package, I drool!

it really depends on your modding plans. If your goin to mod your suspension, cams, exhaust and differential either way, then put the 3500 towards aftermarket mods. Plus the performance gain will be much greater. If your doing it for the body kit, interior, rims and don't plan on getting into heavy performance modding, then its probably worth it.

It all depends. Good luck. Great choice either way!

My Ride: 330ci M performace04
i m new to owning a bmw so this is jsut based on what i have seen so far.......
i test drove the 330 ci first and loved it, then drove the 330 ci M perf, and knew that i had to have it!!!

im not big on mod s so wouldnt really change the car too much but i love the way the 330 ci M perf looks and drove so chose it, not because it was faster or anything......im not sure if that 10hp really made a diff but it sounded nicer

No, the M pkg does not, it add's a body kit, bigger wheels, stiffer suspension, better interior.

If you get the Performace Package, you get 10 more HP on the 330's...

My Ride: '04 330CI, M package
Hey I'm looking at picking up a 2003 330ci with the M package on it. What other extras come with the M package. I haven't gotten a chance to go see the car first hand yet. Just trying to figure out what will be on the car. Does anybody know if Hamann wheels come with or would these have been added by the owner? I looked them up and they sell for 6500. I'm really close on pulling the trigger to pick this car up.
