The car I will never forget...


On August 11, 2018

Maintenance Costs R 0.00 / Year

Insurance Premium Value R 0.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption L/100km

The story I will never forget about the car I will never forget.

I was a first year student at University in 2014 when I stumbled upon an advert on Gumtree one evening, it was a 2005 BMW 330i manual with 138 000km on the clock. The car seemed to be in a good condition and the price was very reasonable. Not in the market for a car I showed the ad to my Dad in the hopes of some miracle happening...

My Dad was impressed with the photo's and after speaking to the owner who sounded quite solid, my Dad decided to go for it. The next evening I was on a bus to Cape Town to view and buy the car. When the bus stopped I saw the car through the windows for the first time and I couldn't believe my eyes. The 330, as I always called it, was in an immaculate condition and after meeting the owner I had no doubt that this was my car. I transferred the money to him and I was on my way back home with my 330i.

I was blown away with my 330. The sound of the 3 liter straight 6, the 190kw of power, the extras as it was a fully spec'd car. For a first year student with no prior experiences with a car of that caliber power and full specs, it was a dream come true.

On my long drive home I was also impressed with my fuel consumption as the 330 managed 8 litres per 100km which I reckoned was very good for the size of the engine. When I got home my whole family and all my friends were incredibly impressed with "the amazing car I bought for the price of a 2nd hand Polo Vivo".

My 330 was a well looked after car, but I still have to give BMW credit w. r. t. the build quality. Although it was 9 years old and had 138 000km on the clock it still looked and felt like a new car. None of my friends ever knew that it was 9 years old and had done that kind of mileage, everyone who saw my car thought it was a new and expensive BMW.

Driving it to varsity and back I felt like a king, I also did occasional holiday trips and I never felt that I needed anything more for my needs. The power was always enough and I was addicted to the sound of the engine. I often thought to myself, I wonder if other 330i owners ever actually realized how good their cars were...

My 330 was also always reliable and the maintenance costs were not bad. If I had any complaints it would be that the ride was a bit firm and that the runflat tyres were expensive.

After 3 wonderful years of ownership I sold the 330 because I was offered a good deal on a Mercedes ML
350cdi and I liked the idea of having an SUV. I sold the 330 for a good price and had minimal depreciation on it.

Although I enjoy my ML, I can't help to miss the 330 some days. It was a truly brilliant car and I will never ever forget it.
