hello everyone. I want you guy's opinions, should I get an 2002 BMW 330ci (rwd) or a 2004 330xi (all wheel drive)? I like both but I can't decide if I want rear wheel drive or all wheel. Both are mint.
They keep them pretty clean now. I like the sportier ci but it has 175,000 miles. VERY well taken care of. The x only has 122,000 miles. I'm not scared of the rear wheel drive part of the coupe at all, everyone keeps saying to get AWD but I don't think it makes that much of a difference. And like you said, less can go wrong with the RWD. I know I asked this stuff in my last thread but I thought I'd ask again sense I'm down to these two cars. Both cars are $5000 but I will try to talk those prices down. KBB puts the value more around $4000 each.
How many miles do you plan on driving it per year? If you are only going to do 5K it doesn't matter how many are on it at purchase but if you are going to do 20K you will definitely be better off buying something with lower miles.
Have you studied our wiki to see the enormous amount of improvements for the '04 model year compared to the '02?
And that extra 50K miles does make a difference unless the original owner was a PM fanatic.
