I just bought a 2005 330i. i'm so excited i can't even sleep!

i was a little hesitant about the natural brown but after seeing some pics online - i'm in love! can't believe i was originally bummed out cuz i missed out on the black leather.

33,000$ WTF! :yikes: comon on your leaving somehting out, what is it a lemon trade in?

Ehh, damn, BMW has the worst depritiation ever. I always hear all this stuff oh yes the best resale in its class, blah blah blah.... yeah right. this means my car went down like what 15k? my mom looked to trade her E class in for a cls, but ended up not bc still like the E alot. The way the dealer made it sound, her E class only depritiated $5k and that was suppose to be the big hit once u drive it off the lot.

You'll love the natural brown leather. It almost feels like a custom interior color because it's so rare. It also provides a really nice sporty two-tone look. Enjoy your new car. And please post pics :)

no lemon! brand new. they are getting all the plastic removed and i sit here dreaming about it. it listed at 42045 but they don't want any left on the lot once the 06's arrive.

i have to be honest - i test drove a 545i last weekend because my wife thought it looke "nice and beefy" - it was used w/ 17k miles... they wanted 49 for it and all weekend i tried figuring out how i could make it happen... i gotta tell ya - that was the SWEETEST ride i've ever been in. i took a corner that had a "20mph" sign up at 65 and the car didn't skip a beat. the best part was when we were entering the freeway i hid the speedomoter and asked my wife how fast she thought we were going... "65?"

"nope, 107"

LOL

so - point of my story is - i want to eventually get into a 545 and i figured the best way to do it was to get an '05 for the crazy discount and trade it in later.

pics to come soon! :thumbup:

Sarcasm intended? If you like the e46, 33K with premium package is a sweet deal. And that color combination has to be awesome. Post pictures when you can.

OB/NB is nice! I guess I bought my 330i a little too soon, in October, with December delivery. Same basic car as yours plus xenons (no ipod) for $39K :(. You're gonna love it! :thumbup:

Edit -- oh, is yours 6speed or step? Mine is 6speed, so it makes the diff in price even more if yours is auto.

I had driven a 325i manual back in '02 when I decided on a different car (dumb!). Anyway, my only 330i drive was an auto the dealer had in stock. Almost changed my mind from MT, the auto was a blast on the test drive. In the end I stuck w/ MT (and I'm happy). Either way it's a great car -- good luck!

you shold have waited for the 06 :eek:

but still, congrats :thumbup:
You made the right choice going for the 05. You saved big money and big headaches while the bugs are worked out of the e90.

Plus you'll abe driving a sleek, sharp looking, 05 instead of a big, bloated, boring looking 06

The two happiest days of a women's life are the day she gets married and the day she gets divorced.
The two happiest days of a man's life are the day he gets his first BMW and the day he sells it. :D

Natty brown looks really nice. I have a loaner 325i jet black w/natty brown and it is very sharp.

Congrats and enjoy it!

Sounds like you're saying you got $9k off sticker on a new car, is that what you're saying?

These deals on the 330's now are really pissing me off. I got 1500 off MSRP a year ago and I was happy with that! :mad:

But, I've been enjoying the car for a year, I optioned just how I wanted and ordered it and my only regret is not getting the M3.

The Natural Brown is the best interior you can get. :thumbup:
