BMW's 3-series compact sport-luxury cars, or executive cars, have been BMW's biggest breadwinner since the series was launched in 1975. The 2001 BMW 330i is built on the E46 platform, the fourth-generation 3-series chassis in production from 1998 to 2005. The 2001 BMW 330i was the first car to receive the automaker's new 3.0-litre inline-six-cylinder engine.The 2001 BMW 330i was designed so that owners could perform basic maintenance like replacing taillights and other bulbs on their own. Along with a tail light, each of the two rear bulb assemblies contains a turn signal indicator and a brake light. You'll access the rear bulb holders through the vehicle's boot compartment.
