I think the other aspect apart from his relationship with you is that, in my opinion, it is harder to move the 320d/i compared to the 328i.
Leather, business nav, anti-dazzle/folding mirrors, HiFi sound and lumbar control - all these things are standard on the 328i but not the 320d/i and the price difference is only 6k. So it would be logical that any BMW dealer would be willing to provide a bigger discount to the 320i/d.
Another thing to consider is that generally options are not worth much on trade-in (a fricking salesman said that to my face
, like 5 minutes after he suggested a few options on the new car. I choked on the irony). A lower spec car with more options will not retain its value as well as a higher spec car with less options even if when new the prices were the same. But I can see why you want a diesel.
Does the M-Sport package come with lowered suspension? If you care about handling don't leave your car with stock suspension. Sport suspension at minimum and M-adaptive all the better going by what people are saying.
