  • The car was considered by many as setting the benchmark in its class when it came to performance and handling, that was thanks to the E46’s near-perfect weight distribution and sophisticated rear suspension set up. Neither the Audi A4, Mercedes C-class or Alfa 156 could touch it.
  • BMW 330D (7.6 out of 10) REVIEW DATE: 2007-09-06 15:02:00.0. My marker today is the BMW 330d. The 'old' E46-series 330d was a fine car and one which rewrote the rulebook for diesel sports saloons. Here was a car with no appreciable Achilles heel. Add a premium of around £1,200 for the Touring estate. SE trim we're relatively accustomed.

Have run these tyres on two different cars over winter for the last 4 years. The first set on a Honda Civic Type R in 205/45 R17 and the second set on a BMW F31 330 Touring in 255/40 R18 These tyres are simply incredible! The levels of grip they give when the road surface temp gets below 6 degrees C is almost on par with summer tyres. I have absolute confidence in the ability to stop and turn the car as and when required on slippery and frozen surfaces. Have taken the BMW into the French and Swiss alps a number of times and absolutely no drama, even when other cars are stopping to put on snow chains over alpine passes with fresh snow, and my BMW is rear wheel drive so notoriously bad in these conditions with normal tyres on. The Honda has also done really well with these tyres and with a front to back rotation we have got 20,000 miles out of a set of these tyres, and the Type R is pretty hard on front tyres being high power and front wheel drive. The only downside I would say is that the tyre compound is a bit soft when temps rise. Anything above about 6c road surface temp (not air temp) is going to be putting extra wear on the tyres. consequently in the UK I only fit them from December through to March when the weather is coldest. Also the sidewall is a little softer than summer tyres so the steering does not feel quite as precise as my summer tyres on initial turn in, but the grip is excellent so can forgive them of this. I would have no hesitation buying these tyres again
