Smile Newbie Questions, please help

Hi,

I am considering buying a 330ci and I just joined the board. I have a few newbie questions if anyone would help :

1) What is the warranty for a used 330ci?

2) How much lower is the sports suspension vs the non-sport?

3) Is there any difference in the exterior dimentions between the 330ci and the 330i?

4) Is the 330ci Steptronic a reliable model?

5) What are the common flaws for this model?

6) Are the split fold down rear seats standard?

7) What do you like or dislike about this model?

Thanks for your help

Shawn

>=2001 as long as it's the 3.0 engine

2001 + That is when they started making the 330 right?

2001 they made the 330ci, 2000 they had 328ci. I have a 01 330ci and its been nothing but top notch. 15,000 miles on it... you'll love it.
