I have owned this car since July last year.
The looks are fantastic, but with the roof down there is very limited space in the boot.
I have had a problem with the engines running at low speed - it appears to judder. My dealer has attempted to run a software upgrade which they say will sort the problem out. It will be going in for the fourth time next week.
Fuel economy is fair, with a reasonable 40mpg on a long run - my previous 330D was far better, though.
I have now done 5500 miles and apart from the minor niggle with low engine speed, the car is great.
More sporty cruiser than out-and-out sports car, the 330d combines formidable mid-range punch with a frugal turn at the pump. A 200 kg weight gain means structual rigidity resists all but the worst road surfaces, however, handling is perforce less nimble than the coupe, though still supremely capable. Quality of materials/manufacture is second to none. Compromise is kept to a minimum. A versatile and well resolved package.
I picked up my 330i M Sport in Febraury, having traded in my Z4M roadster. I was somewhat reluctant to do so as I was thoroughly pleased with my Z4M but as I required 4 seats I was left with little option.
However, I am extremely impressed with my new 330 and haven't looked back. The ride is far smoother and more relaxing than the Z4M (perhaps a sign of getting older!) and the 272 hp is more than enough for UK roads. The build quality is fantastic and the cabin is a great place to be. I opted for the i-pod interface which is brilliant, no need for CD's in the car any more.
I cannot fault the car in any way and would recommend it to anyone. All I need now is some spring weather so I can savour open top motorning once again!
Just purchased my new BMW 335i M Sport with all the goodies - cost close to £48k but its worth every penny. Having just moved from a Q7 to the 335 I love it! It has the best handling and driver involvement of any car I have ever driven. Yes true it lack practicality, space and the running costs are high...but then surely this is not your main car!
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
Amazing car, once driven, never forgotton, forget all the pretenders like BMW Z4 and Mercedes SLK, they will never have the passion of a Porsche
I love this car! Handling is great, its fun to drive and even reasonably practical!
