Mein Auto: 04 330Ci 6 Spd, 07 335Cic
i have a 2004 330ci (first year of the facelift) and its been great and pretty reliable as long as ive owned it (and as long as its been in the family for that matter)
325s are slow, so id recommend the 330 with a stick, and the sport package wouldnt hurt, with the better suspension.
i dont really think there is a more problematic year than another, except for the early models like e46freak said above, but it does matter if the previous owner took care of it

on the wiki there some "some things to look for when buying" so id take a look at that as well

good luck!
