Well, beat you 330d lot..

its just a 3.0l petrol and F20 instead

Few pics of the car after returning from holiday and collecting
I decided to defer collection from the Sep 28th, as i think driving it home only to leave it for a week would have been torture!

Will add some first impressions tomorrow, but what I will say is I am very encouraged this car can do economical when needed. Using EcoPro mode on the 25 mile trip home (i was very tired) I got an impressive 37mpg! Over the same route my e90 330d would do 38-45 (depending on traffic).

I did give it half throttle and 4k revs at one point to overtake and wow....it can also move!

I think MaestroAl will chuckly that i finally ended up with Adaptive Suspension...and you know what, i think i may like it!













You all know I lost patience with a mid-December delay for my F30 330d order I jumped at this dealer's car which had just arrived. Even more lucky was the colour and interior trim were exactly the same
