330CI handled nice but damnit for a 40K mile car it felt older, on top of that it was a lot less powerful then what I thought it would be. 330CI thumbs up on looks, thumbs down on the car as a whole. M3. hehehe this car handled very well, had a nice harsh ride like I like. and the seats, oh baby the seats. I was snug in the seats the sides wrap around you, they are just perfect seats Mmmmmm. power wise.... once again less then I thought. I didnt take it up past 8K but I did get it close to 7K (with sales guy in car) it had some really nice torque but it didnt do what I thought it would do. this car also had just over 40K miles and it also felt like it had more miles, I had to check all the windows/sunroof becuase I kept hearing sounds like wind... oh wait thats just the door not sealing right. BAH! Car looks awesome, Car felt awesome, power could have been a tad bit more but Im sure a lot of that was in the last 2K RPM I didnt get to. over all I really like the M3 but when it comes down to it all the things I heard on random beamer forums is true, I just dont trust the cars. Also one thing I noticed was the gas pedal has about 1/4 travel before anything happens. its like the first 20% of the throttle only work about 5% of the way, so it was nothing and then a bunch of gas at once. Maybe they do that to make it feel fast? I dont know. I test drove an 06 TSX auto (had ZERO 6 speeds) the fit of the car felt better then both BMWs it felt better built all the way around. the engine with the auto was a piece of shit, Reviews also agree and say it's a blast with the 6speed. over all I really really really liked the car. I think the TSX is going to be the car. I just need to find one I like and for the price I like. that is, IF the reviewers are right about the 6 speed ver being much better. My view on BMWs has changed a lot in the last 2 months. Would I own a M3? fuck yeah, but I wouldnt pay over $30K for it if it had over 40K miles. I'd take an S2000, or Z/G over it anyday for the money. P.S I almost test drove a GTO just becuase they had one with UNDER 10K miles on it. sticker price was $21K once again american cars have NO RESALE VALUE at all. in the end I figured I would just end up hating the car if I owned it and in 3 years it would be worth no more then a used honda.
