330i sedan review

I dropped my car off today for the steering retrofit. In it's place I got a 330i Sedan slushie. Here's my opinion:

So, it's a nice car. Steel Grey is very pretty and changes color in different light, I thought it was Steel Blue at first till I got up to the car.

It does not have the Sport Pack and I miss the sport seats, these are much harder. It does have the HK stereo which is nice, more bass.

The 330 has awesome brakes and if it were not for my getting a M3 I'd retrofit them like HACK did.
The 3.0 has more low end torque, some of which is eaten up by the slushie but is nice.

I LOVE the steering and can't wait for my car!! Very nice and positive! I noticed I tended to turn more than necessary, this is due to the reduced turns, lock to lock, of the new steering. I'm steering like I'm driving my car.

The "B" pillar is a PITA, and obstructs vision.
I'm sure this is different depending upon person adn seat placement. For me it's right where it should not be.

Overall the car is nice daily transportation. As 4 doors go I like my 5 series better even though the 330 has more power. Sport seats are a must!

B-pillar pissed me off for a week or so, until I acclimated to it. I've changed my mirror adjustments to compensate (swing drivers side ext. mirror outward more -- can't see the side of my car, but it almost eliminates my blind spot).
Yup. I still think the placement of the B pillar pretty much sucks, though, from a viewability standpoint. But then, the view out the back window is a lot narrower than I'd come to be accustomed to, too, having driven Hondas/Acuras for years and years. The E46's rear view thickness is just a little better than I remember some POS Pontiac Grand Am rental being. Ugh. :)
