    pics of the new beemer then!

    OK, here it is!
    330 ci sport convertible.
    The power is great in it, seems a lot more effortless than the S3. And sounds better too, although miss the sound of the turbo.

    yes i miss the s3!
    doesnt feel as chuck about as the s3, and even then, that didn't really feel that gokart like. You start to see alot of these on the road now you're looking for them too.... could go months without seeing an S3.

    Nice car, getting ready for the sun, I'm sure when you start to push it a bit more, then you will will find some fun in the RWD chassis.

    Reminds me of summer.

    Fancy a BMW in the future, perhaps a 330c too but a diesel possibly.

    Another BMW fan here too!!!

    You should have bought an M3 though!!!

    My dad has a 330ci but its no quicker than the S3, just a different delivery which makes a nice change when you're used to turbo's. They do sound great too. I thought his sounded nicer than my M3 when started up - which is why a changed the M3 exhaust!

    Enjoy!

    Wow, thats a cracking looking convertible....before my Audi A4 2.5 TDi Quattro Sport Avant I had a string of BMW 3 series 6 potters...and they were ALL fantastic fun ! They have a "grin factor" that I am just not getting with the A4, even with the RS4 ARB fitted....
    OK in the wet the A4 is a MUCH safer car.....and with 1.5 kids in tow the A4 is more practical.....BUT as child no 2 will be with us in August, the wife has decided to get rid of her Mini Cooper S and get a Mondeo 2.2TDi ST - which is a cracking car...so as the wife will have the family bus, I may get something with 2 doors again - just seeing your convertible has got me thinking
    A4 2.5 Tdi Avant Quattro Sport : 180HP 6 speed, Mauritius Blue, full black leather heated electric front seats, auto lights, Xenons, auto dipping rear view mirror, heated folding door mirrors, cruise control, Bose, full DIS, MFSW, 18" RS6 reps, rear parking sensors, colour coded lower, rear door window blinds, interior & ambient lighting kit, under seat storage, front armrest as standard. RS4 ARB, RNS-e sat nav, Cd Changer, OEM bluetooth fitted by me.
