The BMW M54 Engine
The BMW M54 3.0 Liter engine is the powerhouse behind the 330ci. It is pictured below on my car. It features dual VANOS variable valve timing, which allows more torque to be available in the lower Rpm range. With superior engineering and routine maintenance, it will definitly last more than 200k miles.

About My 2003 BMW 330ci Sport
This is my 2003 BMW 330ci. It is gray green metallic and came with the sports package, premium package, heated seats, and a 5-speed manual transmission. If you've taken a look at the site it is obvious that I have done a little bit of work to my car to make it drive a bit more like the ultimate driving machine. Since I have owned it, it hasn't experienced any problems and runs great. It is an excellent car to drive in every way and always brings a smile to my face! I highly reccomend the 330 in every way!
