I'd skip both just because I know 2004 e60's are a little quirky and a first year prod 330 is an unknown quantity in terms of gremlins.

Forget buying either car here in the US, look into European Delivery and treat yourself to a vacation and a substantial discount on a new BMW.

If you don't need the bigger car...no question in my mind: the 330i. If you wait a few months you'll most likely get a better deal.

I'm sure you know that those two cars are very different beasts--you are trying to figure out if you should buy an old orange or a new apple.

arnolds has a great point...both are first year production cars...bound to have issues with either one. To be frank, had it not been for the awesome lease deals BMW was handing out for the 545i, I wouldn't have gotten the second year production of the E60...I would have waited at least another year.

Regarding your decision of the 530 vs the 06 330i I'd reccomend the new ride. I just picked mine up two weeks ago in Spartanburg SC through the Performance delivery plan and drove it home. The car is incredible! It performs flawlessly, you won't be dissapointed.

After several 3 series cars, I purchased a 2004 530 with 9400 miles. It's a wonderful car and I'm glad I made the switch.

Married and over 35

you are buying a first year model of each one, why not get an 06 5 series?
