Yep it's delivery that makes so much difference, your going to love the 330D, this 328i is a pain to me already, BMW to be fare have loaned this brand new car to me for however long my new 330D MS touring takes to arrive, so can't complain to loudly, one thing that is not so good, on down changes using paddles there is a delay between gears, and the car seems to drop[ into neutral between changes
it's a bit unnerving . Economy @ a steady 70/75MPH is 37MPG, I have covered 400 miles in it so far, this is not bad for a petrol, but thats with NO boot down anytime just gentle driving. The 330 D M Sport on the other hand returned 53MPG with frequent boot downs.
