'03 330Ci or '04 325Ci



hey guys, trying to decide which car to get, they both are about the same price, maybe $500 difference. Km's are pretty much the same, 330ci have about 10,000km more, 325ci has 65000km's.

Both are fully loaded with sport package. So i can't decide, do i get the 325ci which is facelifted, or the 330ci, which has more power.

I'm planning to pick one up by friday, i just can't decide!!!

the facelift is nice because its more up to date...but the 330 has a bit more juice in it...honestly this is a very tough question....but if it was an AW facelift there would be NO contest...what are the colors anyways?

For what purpose are you buying the car? Ask yourself that... Do you realy need the extra power that 330 has or not?

If it is just a daily driver then I'd go for the facelifted model.

Facelift because it costs looks twice the price as a pre facelift.

There both black, and black interior, with the brushed aluminum trim. 330ci has about 75,000km, and the 325ci has about 65,000km. Both has sport package so the clear tails and no orange on the front or side markers. Interior looks identical, both have the sport steering wheel, and exact same options, such as seats. They honestly look identical, other then the facelifted parts

ok so i just carfax'd both cars, made my decision and it will be the 325ci. 330 looks like its from california, got in an accident last year, car sold in auction and now for sale at the dealership. 325ci, clean record, local car, no accident reported. I perfer the more power of the 330ci, but the fact that it was in a accident, and sold off at a auction right after sounds kinda shady. So wish me luck, gonna go pick it up this week!!!

If you want 330 wait until you find one you like.

A long time ago I was looking to buy a grand prix, found a few nice GTs but ended up waiting for a GTP and it was worth it. Same thing happened with CLK, found 3 320 and waited until I found 430 that I liked..then it was 528/530 - 540

It's always worth the wait, or you can regret later.
