Thanks! I think I've only left out the driving aids like Lane Change Departure warning and Active Cruise Control and all that stuff I'd never really use.

So much time for the luxury line. The chrome line trim will look great against that paintwork.

Only question / suggestion. Have you considered HUD? I didn't bother and it was over my budget but it seems that those who have it, love it, and wouldn't go back. Quite a few members have raved about it in their threads. Each to their own though.

I did think about it but 800 is a lot of money when I can just glance down at my display or iDrive. It does look ace but I've kinda considered it to be in the Lane Change Warning kind of category, I'm not gonna need it or really use it, although it would be cool to have!

Yeah, should be the dog's goolies! The 320d is a great motor!! Had a test drive of one in Sport guise with the sport auto and... WOW!!! Pearling engine and great economy. I would very happily live with that. Infact, I'm more sold on the 20d than I am the 28i despite just ordering one.

Your car sounds like a great spec too! Will be a great step up from an A3. Hey, I'm high mileage, might see you on the road one day!

Good stuff! I ordered my 328i on 2nd jan and they reckon I won't get it until some time in May. Did they say it was likely to come forward. When does it enter build? It seems US customers can follow their order online. Wish we could here.

I ordered mine mid Dec and it was delivered to the dealer 2 months later. I also just found out today that a colleague of mine ordered his just after Christmas and his is due 'mid-April'. So, I would have thought early May would be entirely reasonable for yours. Hopefully they're under-promising with the intention of over-delivering.

Yeah I wish we could track ours too! I don't know how soon we could have the 328i, I chose 26th May because my 330d is due to go back on the 28th May which is a Monday so I'd rather have the weekend to get to know the 328i.

I'm now even more worried about the fuel economy of it after EPA has revised the MPG significantly down in the USA. This must be correct for the UK 328i too since the same N20 motor is used, no? If so, that means economy drops from 44.8MPG to 39.4MPG. God dammit
BUT I AM SO EXCITED FOR IT!! 53 days, 11 hours to go! Really looking forward to the 600w Harmon Kardon sound system too .

Bastard lease company won't let me keep my 330d till 8th June . Contract expires on 28th May so I've gotta now find some wheels for 2 weeks! That's very annoying and means I have less than a week with my fabulous 330d

The positive thing about you driving the Insigna right now is:

it makes your transition from your fantastic ex 330d onto your soon 328i easier...

Your spec combo F30 looks awesome !! i really like the wheels, together with the Lux line!

Can't wait for the pic you will be posting!

Thanks! That really made me smile
Yeah, this Insignia is fairly awful! I was thinking about creating a lengthy thread describing it actually but with so many negatives to positives about it, I'll probably just get flamed so I can't be arsed.
The main positive in the select few though is what you outline! Made me realise even further how bloody brilliant my gorgeous 330d was (god I miss it ) and it'll make my 328i feel like a Maybach with Ferrari 458 capabilities!!
So very excited for my F30
Such a difference from what I'm used to! Over 18 years of diesel ownership, all my life manual transmission, and I've never gone to town on the options list before. My 330d had heated seats, sun protection glass, windscreen with grey shade band, those fabulous mixed tyre 18" alloys ( I forget the code), sports seats (ace) but that's about it! Oh and split folding rear seats but they may have been standard.
I'm gonna create such a huge thread with pics and videos it's gonna take down Bimmerpost
