So glad someone has posted this - i've ordered a 320i xDrive M Sport to replace my A3 2.0TDI S Line Quattro Black Edition, which has been excellent in poor weather so i'm hoping the xDrive will be as competent.

My main hope though is that I haven't made a mistake moving quickly and getting the 320i rather than waiting for the 320d. Would be interested to know what average ecomomy is being achieved. I do probably 8,000 personal miles per year so reckoned on the petrol costing up to 300 extra per year fuel and tax. For a 2,200 price difference I didn't think it'd be worth it.

The two negatives i'd read about 3 series (almost all fleet based 320d reviews) are about the manual gearbox and rattly engine - so going for the petrol and auto box seemed to address these! Just hoping when I re-learn the petrol engine I can access the power ok!
