F**K me you would think they could afford the cars they sell
I took my M6 in their ( Not by choice ) because BMW UK insisted on it being the closest dealership. The 6 had the Oil filler cap come loose!!! and Oil was all over the engine, anyway took it in, got the call two days later saying all was well, went to collect and found oil all under the car and on the rear curb side wing, went F_____G Mad, told to wait another hour.
Got my car drove 20 miles and the Oil warning light comes up "Stop engine immediately" Oil fault
Phone them, they say drive it in I say if the engine goes you will be getting the M6 at retail, took another 3 hours to fill the engine with the right amount of Oil.
Never again thanks.

The 330D is just the "better" car, but not when taken against cost. it's the luxury version. none of us bought a 330D thinking it was the "sensible choice" We bought them because we wanted a 250bhp diesel that'll return 40mpg and because we can
This is an excellent way to put it: the 330D is 'the luxury version'.
A smooth 6 cyl engine and more power. But this is something you have to pay for and this is reflected in the desire of 330D owners to obtain 40 mpg. Very possible I am sure on urban, country and motorways but perhaps a little more difficult about town, and by that I mean 'up-the-smoke' not about small country towns!

If I lived in "the smoke" no way would I buy this 330D, it would be a small engined car. BUT have a GTR for fun

This happens all across the country with dealers. Down south, 2 dealers in the same group could not be further apart in terms of service and discounts offered. After options i got 10% discount.... Roll on Thursday for collection day!
