    Good evening ladies and gentlemen , i'm yet another newbie here (not to bm's) , anyway i thought i would post to try to find out some info' . I'm looking at buying a 2001/2 330 convertible and wondered if anyone could give me any advice as to what the fuel consumption is likely to be ?, i currently have a z3m and get about 23/24 knocking about so i was thinking somewhere about the same .
    And also on the 330's is the climate control dual zone ?
    Cheers in advance for any advice JJ .

    Hi Jboz and welcome....
    Any other questions and please post them in the E46 _+ newer 3 series forum section

    To answer your current ones.

    MPG around town will be about the same or maybe slightly more 24-26mpg ish


    and yes, Im pretty sure the 330s climate control is single zone

    Welcome. Z3M, mmm.

    I am surprised that the 330 is single zone climate when the E36 is dual zone. Am sure that the guys are right. Anyway the 330 is meant to be a lot better around town on fuel than the E36 equivalants, much more poweful and the multifunction stering wheel is nice. Aren't the latest 330's 260bhp?

    I checked on Autodata, The E36 is indeed dual zone, I know it lists the current 7 series as 4 zone, I looked at that as well!
