Dunno about whether its a good deal or not, but test drive both of them back to back. I keep second-guessing myself on whether I should have ordered a 330i sedan or gone for a completely impractical...

Awesome new car craigsbmw! I think you've summed it up nicely - for enthusiasts, cars are an emotional purchase: you get that car that makes your gut lurch, and the M45 seems to have done the trick...

I wouldn't go quite so far as to say "don't get it" - good all-season tires make it possible to drive on snow and in slushy conditions. While PA may have snow, how often do you have to drive on...

Given that you're both performance nutcases (and I'm envious of your husband for that, btw :) ), I'd go for the 330i. The different gear ratios and extra hp and torque definitely make a difference,...

Take another look at that auto transmission failure post - the owner posted his BMW work order receipt; it definitely doesn't look like he is faking it.

It all depends where you are - some regions seem to have dealers that are willing to negotiate; other's don't.

Which one did you look at? The 325i or 330i? If it was the 325i, it doesn't have logic7 standard.

Audi S4 (B6) or E90 330i?

So, while I've got a 330i on order, at the same time as I was shopping around for the 330i I stopped in at an Audi dealer looking at certified pre-owned B6 S4's - low mileage and a really good...

Is it possible that Canada is actually getting the 2.5l instead of the 3.0l for the 325i and that you are getting the 320d?
