The M135i looks good in that colour.

I have covered 650Miles in this new touring 328i luxury, it's returning 36MPG, mixed driving now, no real town work though we live out of town.
Yeah, i am starting to do a similar routine after 12 miles (when its fully warmed up!).

i think the 328i could well be the unsung hero, its quite a bit cheaper and that is good combined MPG! How is the engine note and smoothens?

of course, it wont have all those torques of you inbound 330d
