Looked into the 540i recently...reliable but most of the usual problems with it are expensive...330ci not too familiar with it but heard nothing but positivesfrom that gen and you can expect the usual BMW cost to fix little nuances in the car...03 Range Rover old body style and works best with/as a second car andthey're updating the body style again so its 2-generations old...wanted one hell still want one but know I can't until I can afford it as/with aanother car...

330 was my first car, I loved it.

330ci can look sooo clean with just a few mods, get that. 540i was a nice whip but it's very dated now.

Range Rover = what I drive now and I hate it. No fun at all.

The BMW she wants, or 540I is right here - M Sport Package, SS Exhaust, etc.


I like sports cars, it is a nice SUV though for those who like bigger cars.

But Ranges are so unreliable, an 03 will be super high-mileage and will be a huge headache when it comes to maintenance. Stick with the BMWs.

Dont buy a used BMW unless it still has warranty on it and /or you have extra cash for service...

my brother had a Range and it just gave him trouble. His was under warranty. He told me one day "Jay, when this ^&%(& warranty is up...I am out ofthis crap." I used some lighter words for NT purposes. He bought an Infiniti Q56 and loves it.

QFT But if its only between those three, 2003 330ci > 2003 Range Rover HSE (which would be 1st if it wasnt for gas) > 2003 540i
