Good evening fellow members, i recently preferred a 320i over a 328i because it was close to 20K euros cheaper. Unfortunately in Turkey tax rates are so high i paid 50,200 Euros for a no line comfort pack, techno pack sunroof mineral gray
320i with non heated manual seats, standard 6 speaker audio. i want to pull my hair out when i read or see the prices and specs of the BMW's sold in the U.S. if i lived in the States i would have no reason to buy a 320i. i would go straight for the 335i. However for people like me living in overtaxed countries even a 320i is not logical. Most F30's here are 316i or 320d (btw a gallon gas is close to $10 in istanbul) and the 320d starts at 55,000 euros. We would be looking at close to $80,000 - $90,000 for a sportline power and heated seat, harmann kardon, navigation, 18inch wheels cruise control equipped 320i.
