Sounds like most of the loosening up is done by around 2,000 miles - and if it takes more, then more good stuff to come.

Not surprised by comments re the F30 330d not being quite as quick as E90 335d - I drove my mates one quite a bit and it has more bottom end and more top end than my car. Feels like there's nothing in it at full tilt in the mid range though. What I love about the twin turbo is that you have real go from 1,000 rpm.

Guess a mapped 335d would leave an F30 330d for dead - heard well-respected tuners getting 330 BHP and shedloads of torque.

I can't wait for the 440d to come out. Bet that will upset a lot of sports car owners and it will have serious grunt at almost any rpm.
