I would make sure that the model you buy is equipped with the M Package. Amazing suspension and feels great on the rode. To my knowledge a 330i has a six cylinder engine, not four. I think you will have plenty of room being 6'2". I am 6' and have plenty of headroom and legroom. I can only agree that there is a lot more legroom than most people think.

I also think that the 1series a beautiful car. It has to be equipped with the M-Package. A 135 will haul a**. I think that in recent days, even the performance cars are getting way to big... in every dimension. A 135i drives like a race car and handles spectacular. Keep in mind there is also a 135is. If the car is just for you, I would go for that. Huge bang for the buck.


I plan on going with a late 2008/09/10 550i M-sport

I drove a 2010 a couple years back. Let me tell you if that thing had wings it would probably take off. Its a really fun car to drive. You'll enjoy!

Wish the E89 I drove had been an M. I wasn't all that impressed with it. It was a good car and I enjoyed driving it but it just didn't do it for me. It was too much on the GT end of the spectrum for me.

My wife and I have been driving BMW's since 1987. We have owned 3 series vehicles, they handle like they are on a rail, to the 5 series and now we have two x series vehicles, an x-3 and x5. We are getting up there in years and like the taller vehicles but we miss the lower sporty models a lot.
You will enjoy the experience, and the maintenance program is great.
I think you can subscribe to Roundel magazine on line to keep up with a lot of info on BMW. The mag is real good.

My wife and I have owned about 25 new BMW's over the past 30 years. Yes we are old :-) and we do put a lot of miles on a car,.i.e 25,000 a year each.
The new 5 series is great. I drove a new 5 series loaner recently and loved it. I drove the older 5 series style for years and the new larger model is very nice.
They handle great and are very reliable. Due to all the miles we put on our cars we traded when they reached 49,000 miles so the maintenance program was a blessing for us. Enjoy

The only thing I can tell you is test drive it. Make sure nothing feels strange. E60's outside of warranty are not cheap to fix. So be careful.
