Vehicle Summary

2006 brought on the 'E90' platform from BMW. This 330i model was a one-year-only production run before being replaced by the 328i and 335i. While the 328i was low on grunt, and the turbo 335i gave many drivers reliability issues, the 330i provided a great balance of power and efficiency. The 3.0L N52 engine has emerged as one of BMW's most reliable modern engines, and also claims the top spot as the highest HP naturally aspirated straight 6 ever put in a non-M BMW. At 255HP and 225LB-FT, the 330i provides enough muscle to keep things interesting, while achieving nearly 30MPG when highway cruising. This particular 330i is spec'ed for the driving enthusiast. Notable options include: Sport Package with 18 inch staggered fitment wheels, sport tuned suspension, sport steering wheel, and power adjustable sport seats, as well as a 6 speed manual transmission, 'Single hump' dash, and brushed aluminum trim. Recent maintenance in the past 3 months includes: New Bilstein dampers with top hats, bump stops, and sway bar links. New brakes including rebuilt calipers, brake lines, rotors, pads and caliper bushings. New fluids including engine oil, transmission oil, differential oil, and brake fluid. Extensive detailing has also been completed.

Thanks for all the interest so far. Only 4 hours left! Reserve has been met! This car is going to a new owner today.

I also did want to mention that I do have the engine 'beauty cover' and will include with sale. I had removed it to show the condition of the mechanicals underneath (new valve cover gasket, coils, plugs, and this one has the magnesium valve cover that doesn't warp like the plastic ones!)

@rattmobbins We'll let the bidding play out, but the reserve is quite a bit less than total investment!

Apologies to those trying to bid who received an error, the issue has been resolved.

Rough estimate on your reserve? Sold my ‘06 330i in 2010 and have regretted it every single day since. Would love to get back into one and this is by far the cleanest I’ve seen!

@ecaicedo Thanks for the questions. The exhaust is completely stock. The headliner is in good shape, no tears or sagging. I will post additional photos to the photo gallery in a few hours.

Great looking car! Couple of questions: how is the headliner doing, and is the exhaust system original?
