Penguin Posted April 28, 2005 Share Posted April 28, 2005 We got our first allotment of new 3 series cars in two days ago, and the first one to get ready for sale was a silver 330 six speed MT. Very nice car, the new inline six is the definition of flexibility. Much like the Legacy, the rated power (255) seems underrated by the way it pulls. I can not stress how good of a motor is in this car, it makes the out going engine seem weak and crude in comparision. Fotunately the rest of the car is as good as the engine, the car is very well planted on the road and is difficult to break loose even through sharp decreasing radius corners. When it does break loose it is nice and predictable, and the stock tires are progressive in letting go (unlike our damned RE92's). The steering of course is excellent, no slop and lots of communication. The brakes are, in German fasion, very powerfull as well. Overall and extremely well balanced car, a bit faster than the Legacy and it handles better. Also has a nicer interior. Also costs $41,000, so it had damned well better be nice and fast. I realize that for the difference we could make a really fast sharp handling Legacy, but I just don't know if it would be as smooth at the same time. Oh well, time to start saving my money, or selling more cars so I can get my own. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
