My Ride: 2001 BMW 330i
My 330i, and first car.

This 01 330i is my first car, I got it last Friday. Manual transmission, and my neighbor who works at a BMW dealership hooked me up with it for the best price possible. Only 111k miles on it, less than 10k a year. I'm super excited for the memories to come in this ultimate driving machine.

I am stoked that you got a manual and a 330i for your first car. It looks like a really nice example. It is becoming harder to find ones that aren't beat.
Keep good care of it!

Congrats on the pickup, treat her well and she will do the same in return! Most importantly, enjoy the car and take care of that maintenance. Welcome

I agree. If I had a 330 as my first car, I'd be dead now.

Guys a 330 is only a couple hundred HP and the difference between that and a 325 isn't life or death. I understand that op should be cautious but new mini vans have more power than these cars do.

Just get a 330 convertible. It is pretty lame (heavy) unless you rev up to where it sounds really great but you are too afraid for your old engine.

Yeah the 330 is no monster, and with the overbearing traction control it is pretty difficult to get into trouble.
