View Full Version : e46 driver, considering upgrade....vs. e60??

I have a 2004 330xi, but it has relatively high mileage (approaching 47k now)...the dealership claims that they'll give me approx. 25k on a trade-in....

Any e90 drivers want to chime in on pros...cons, etc?
What's the 'feel' of the car like?

My other option would be a 530xi...however, I feel that this car would be somewhat slower than the 330 overall, although nicer, and more of a step up.

Its much better then the e46.

Take it for a spin, a 325i is quicker then a 330i, handles better, etc. 330i is slightly better then the 325i, as its more powerful, and has more options stock.

They are great vehicles, highly recommend upgrading.

There is a big difference between the e46 and e90. Best thing is take one out for a spin.

If you will trade your 04 330xi for 25K.. sell it to me for 25K and ill take care of emissions/safety and blah blah.

If I sell to a private party I'd obviously ask for more.
I'm headed to the only reliable BMW dealership in the area to take both an e90 and an e60 for a test drive, probably tomorrow.

Everything I've heard about the e90 is stellar...reviews on the e60 have been slightly mixed, but generally very good as well.

We...shall see.
