Phasing of xdrive introduction

Does anyone have any idea when the 320d xdrive will come to the UK?

My build is scheduled for August Week 1 and I would love to change it if possible. TBH, a small part of me is itching for a 330d SE, but I'd have to give up a few options that I really want.

A 320d xdrive would be a no brainer though...

Apparently, they're already making them...

Just to update this thread...

I contacted BMW UK and asked when the 320d would be available and they kindly responded as follows

Dear Mr ...............
*
Thank you for your patience whilst I find the answer to your query. *
*
I am pleased to advise that we will be releasing a diesel version of the BMW 320 xDrive, however, we do not have a confirmed date of the release at present. *We are expecting this vehicle to become available in early 2012, as the specification details are being finalised in January 2013.
*
I am sorry for the disappointment that this may cause you, however, I do hope that you may be able to hold on before replacing your existing vehicle.* If I can offer any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me again.
*
Yours sincerely
*
BMW UK



Obviously, early 2012 is a typo for early 2013.

MY 3.0D M Sport Touring arrives October time, I have a set of 18/245/45 winter wheels and tyres to go on it from the X3, that should be enough in the UK.
even 4 * 4 need winter tyres to get around at times.

John, you are of course quite correct. I just fancied a 4wd F30...

Even BMW's are not getting anywhere near the stated MPG these days, my X3 35D M Sport is giving 35/36MPG and it's covered 6K miles now, thats 11 MPG less than they state
I hope to get 44MPG out of the 330D M Sport touring ( they state 55MPG!!!)
My 550i M Sport 2010 got by with Winter wheels and tyres ( No X drive) you just need to be careful.
Also Xdrive adds a lot of extra weight.

You could also send them nice people at BMW UK another email and ask them can you potential new purchase be knicked in between 60-120 seconds like most BMW's can

I got a feeling the answer will turn out to be yes

Lol. Were you on the cider when you typed that? I had to read it about a dozen times to figure out what you were on about!

Where to begin?

It should have been those nice people not them nice people.

Your not you.

Nicked not knicked.

BMWs not BMW's.

I mean the odd typo is completely understandable but your post was so bad that the meaning was lost. One basic rule of sarcasm is that you pretty much have to come across as literate to score a hit. I'm afraid that's an epic fail for you.

I've taken the liberty of responding to your point in Chavlish - please see below...

I as owned BMW's for quiet a few year's. None of them as got knicked innit.

He he no problem as a easy going chap who can have a good laff at myself as well as laughing at others

Though as an E92 owner as livid at BMW response to how you can drive off with a 20K+ in 60 secs

I wonder if the new model is open to this attack, if it is it's the only chance we have got of BMW implementing a fix, as it will hit new car sales

If you think about it, there hasn't actually been a surge in nickings of 3 series cars, so I wouldn't worry about it too much!
