Correct me if I'm wrong, but the 328 and the 330 have the same engine, BMW just had a weird naming thing going on...the 01 seems like a better deal to me (pretty much fully loaded) and it's mileage is not high for it's age (about 15000 miles a year), but it comes to color choice and what's important to you - lower mileage or a newer car, more options, with normal mileage...jhuanger said:alright.. i'm really torn here, and would appreciate your help and insight.
so i've made offers to two people.. both offers at $17k. both cars bone stock.
1) 2000 steel blue 328CI with 60k miles, and sports package. 2)2001 silver 330CI with 75k miles, and sports package, premium package, HK, and winter package. Both cars are auto, and no warranty on either.
Assuming that Inspection II has been done on both cars, and conditions of both cars are comparable, which one should I choose? which one is a better deal? should i go with the smaller engine and lower mileage, or bigger engine with more options but more mileage? help me out here, e46 gurus. Thanks!
Good luck, you'll love either car anyway!
