330D M Sport "Superman" Pics

\o/ So it finally arrived Only took 15 weeks

Since it didn't get delivered until after dark I found an excuse to go to Tescos since it has a floodlit indoor carpark At least my whisky collection is looking more healthy now

Anyh00 - in no particular order including, as requested, some properly colour-balanced shots of the leather. Looks about right to my eyes on my screen anyway

I am sure in the sunshine the EBII colour takes on a much lighter shade..

Enjoy MaestroAl!

Lol, awesome, makes me want mine even more now and have you had chance to compare Comfort/Sport with the Adaptive Suspension? What's the ride quality like in Comfort?

It's incredibly ... serene ... in comfort mode, more so in Eco Pro because of throttle mappings. It feels like driving the last gen 5 series tbh. I know it's only two trips and one evening but I've probably spent 90% of my time in Comfort and Eco Pro. But yes, you can tell the difference in the dampers immediately if a road has anything other than perfectly smooth asphalt. Can't comment on the steering feel in sport because, being dark and icy, I haven't exactly had call for steering feedback Man does it go like stink though. Managed to get he TC light on from a 40mph kick-down and you can definitely feel the e-diff working on slightly slippery roads. Feels very composed but eager at the same time, if that makes sense Oh yeah: sounds good too!

I popped just past my house to a short stretch of <cough> private back-road conveniently 200yds from my house. It's the same stretch I did all my engine mapping and tuning and timing on the MPS. The 30D reaches the same speed by the same turn: 0-100 is just as quick as my modified 300bhp MPS. Go figure. Torque ftw. The wife never wants to drive it: says she's scared. That's good news. The kids love it but can keep their shoes off my sodding leather!

Yeah but it all makes sense when you pick the kids up from school and the first thing they ask is "did you come in your fast car?!" followed by triumphal shouts of glee

Just what I wanted to hear I'm really looking forward to a better quality ride than my 135i; a bit worried about it being a bit down on power when under hard acceleration compared with the 135i, but I think the extra torque will make up for that
