Short Takes: 2003 BMW 330ci (Start Up, Engine, Full Tour)
In continuation of my "Short Takes" video series at All City Auto, I give a
tour of a 2003 BMW 330ci. I take viewers on a close look through the
interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of
features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show
the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under
acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

BMW M3 Competition SMG Coupe--Chicago Cars Direct
Detailed walkaround and test drive of a 2006 BMW M3 Competition Coupe with
SMG Transmission presented by Chris Moran of Chicago Cars Direct.
With colors like Laguna Seca Blue and Imola Red, there's no question as to
where the BMW M3's aspirations lie. These famous racetracks would be
fitting playgrounds for any car that promises such stratospheric levels of
power and handling.
Whether blasting up Tamburello at Imola or diving into the corkscrew at
Laguna Seca, few cars in the world could attack a road course with the
tenacity of those wearing the "M" badge of BMW's Motorsport division. Until
the 2001 model year, we had to deal with the fact that as much as we loved
those Motorsport machines, our European counterparts were getting versions
far more powerful than ours. Their M3s boasted 317 horsepower, while ours made
do with just 240. Not that we were complaining.
Even with its detuned engine, the previous-generation M3 was still one of
the best performance coupes available anywhere. But the grass is always
greener on the other side, and U.S. enthusiasts couldn't help but wonder
just how much better the M3 was in its Euro-spec trim. With the
introduction of the current-generation BMW M3 for the 2001 model year,
drivers had to wonder no more. The M3 is now the same whether you buy it in
Stuttgart or San Francisco. Better yet, it's been blessed with an even more
powerful 333-hp engine, a sturdier, more responsive suspension and slinkier
bodywork that, we think, makes it one of the most stunning cars on the
Like so many ultrahigh-performance cars of today, finding the limit of the
M3's abilities takes more than just an empty road and the guts to hold the
pedal down longer than usual. Fortunately, the 2006 BMW M3 gets along just
fine in suburban environments, though be forewarned that the ride walks a
very fine line between all-out performance and day-to-day drivability.
Enthusiasts will find it pleasantly firm, but poseurs had better hold on to
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The 2006 BMW M3 in offered in both coupe and convertible form. Standard
features on the coupe include 18-inch wheels with Z-rated rubber, automatic
climate control, 10-way adjustable sport seats, leather and cloth
upholstery, one-touch power windows, heated power mirrors, a CD player, an
auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers and
keyless entry. The convertible adds power seat adjustments and full leather
upholstery; these items are optional on the coupe. Additionally, the drop
top comes with a fully automatic soft top (with heated rear glass); a
removable hardtop is available. There are a number of option packages
available, the most interesting of these being the Competition Package,
which outfits the coupe with some of the performance upgrades from the
coveted European-market M3 CSL, including 19-inch forged alloy wheels,
larger Michelin tires, stiffer shocks and springs, a quicker steering
ratio, upgraded brake pads and rotors, a less intrusive M Track mode for
the stability control system, and unique Alcantara and aluminum interior
trim. Choosing this package deletes cruise control and steering wheel audio
controls. Among the other extras are a sunroof, seat heaters, HID
headlights, a navigation system, a premium sound system, parking sensors,
BMW Assist and an alarm system.
Powertrains and Performance
The BMW M3 is propelled by a potent 3.2-liter, six-cylinder engine rated at
333 horsepower and
262 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard,
while a six-speed sequential manual gearbox (SMG) is offered as an option.
The SMG offers both manual and automatic driving modes, and although it is
by definition a manual transmission, its clutch is electronically
controlled, such that there's no clutch pedal. Drivers can use either
steering column-mounted paddles or the shift lever to change gears in
manual mode. Unlike other systems, SMG allows you to alter the quickness of
the shifts, and in its most aggressive shift program, it's said to be faster than Ferrari's Formula One
Safety features include four-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability control,
front side-impact airbags, head curtain airbags for the front (coupe only)
and a rollover protection system (convertible only); rear side-impact bags
are optional. The BMW 3 Series earned a "Good" rating from the IIHS in
40-mph frontal-offset crash testing.
