But for the price/power 325i/xi are pretty good. They share alot more "common" parts... where teh 330i/xi have a few more exotic parts.

The xi cars sit a lil higher because of the AWD suspension.

Go based on your budget...


$75 - $90 to fill a gas tank. (89 and 91 Octane)
$100 per oil change.
$2000 yearly maintenance for my 325i.
$3000 for yearly maintenance on a 330i/xi should be safe? (what do you think guys?)

Thats just for a 325i. (not saying its always gonna be those $$$, but you never know)

thats just my 2 cents.

If i had a choice, and found a good price... i would have probably got a 330i or 330xi personally. Knowing what i know now. :p
$2000 yearly? I'm assuming that's dealer/shop serviced?

I think I'm spending $500 to $1000 on my e30 318iS, but alot of the work has been done already (has 642K on it ).
