I do a mixture of highway/stop start traffic (my average speed is something like 30km/h according to the trip computer). With my previous car which was an X1 s20d I was averaging 12km/litre (roughly comparable to the 320d though the F30 has a slightly new tune and 8 speed gearbox). The 328i has been mired in the high 9s. If you do mainly country then the difference could be less.

To be honest the 2 engines are completely different beasts. I think you may need to test drive both to see which one you like best, apart from fuel consumption.

My average speed is 89

I'm coming from a Golf R and before that an Audi S3 (but before that an e36 318is) so I'm quite used to turbo 4s.

A damn. A test drive down the old pacific highway may just have to be in order to test them out. What a hardship

One more option to consider:

Variable Sport Steering. I have it and I love it.

Edit: You already optioned it. NVM.

well I went to a few dealers today as well as phoned, and ended getting
a white 320i touring after seeing one in the showroom today.
All up was 72000 Drive away, with M Sport, Nav, Bt Audio, Blinds and Panoramic Sunroof.
Same car i got quoted for, but found one on same boat with Sunroof.

As the touring attracts a 4k premium at list over the sedan i was pretty happy with it.
May not be the best deal but i reckon not to shabby.

Only 30 Days now till i will be driving it. Can't wait !!!

Thanks all for your help

Hi all, new to the forum....have been lurking for a while, doing loads of research and have found it incredibly valuable....this pricing post particularly (and ones on paint protection), so many thanks indeed from a neewbie!

Was both exhilarated and mortified at the same time when I settled on a BS MSport 328i......mortified that I'd potentially have to wait ages (couldn't bear 7 months of torture!!!) was amazed when the dealer said they had 7 Msport BS's in stock!....Decided then I definitely couldn't wait for a 328i build with the dream spec and was very happy to see this Oct 2012 build with 27k's on the odo;

F30 328i
Msport
BS
Dakota black leather
Black gloss highlight trim
Aluminium trim
Adaptive M running gear
Variable sport steering
Sunroof
NavPro
Internet
Music interface for smartphone
Ext Connectivity
Bi-Xenon

(Only "oh bugger" item missing for me really was HUD....loved it in the demo I tested but reckon I can live without it (i hope!)

Originally quoted $$72,590 + taxes and DD ($4101) with LCT at $2695, so all up $90,163.

Took advantage of the corporate program via the Mrs (you can use spouses company as long as the car is registered in both names) so very happy with the 4 yr servicing....asked to get another years warranty (I'd seen someone else had managed that) but was a no go , so just the 3 yrs as normal.

After a bit of juggling back n forth and applying the Corporate Program discount (DD was reduced to $1850 or so) managed to get the price down to $82,000....which I'm fairly pleased with (was trading in and got about the right $$ I was after)

All in all, a great experience so far...terrific dealer service and a straight-up sales chap (I'm in sales and really appreciate a decent salesman!)

Pick up Thu/Fri!!!!! ....it's going to be an exciting lead up!!

Opting for Opti-coat and 3M tint from a detailer but have to wait 4 weeks or so before he can squeeze me in.
(off topic....anyone had 2 coats applied?...I hear you can layer, is it worth it?
and has anyone had their wheels done as well?)

Agin....thanks guys for all the posts and knowledge....it has given me a lot of insight and peace of mind!

Has your car been delivered? No harm in asking.. sames goes for the 4 year free servicing if you haven't got that package yet. Depends on your relationship with the dealer they can push it through.

It nvr does =) Corp programs get it all the time, if you have a good relationship with your dealer or have dealt with them previously they're usually ok to throw that in.

Car was purchased under corporate program so 4yr servicing was included. Deal has been closed and car delivered but nice to get an answer anyway.

Got my 328i M-Sport on Friday afternoon and have barely slept since!....keep finding excuses for a drive, took 1.5 hrs to go to the shops for some milk yesterday....it's 300m away!

All in good nick (a tiny bit of rust in passenger seat, a light coating on a small hinge bracket, nothing major)

Promised myself I'd keep it smooth and under 4000rpm for the first 1000k.....broke that promise at the 38k mark!


Getting Tinted and Opticoat in 3 weeks (detailer said he applies 3 coats), getting the wheels done as well (i.e. removed and treated fully), adds to the expense of course but should help with the brake dust.

Apologies for the rubbish iphone pics;

04AD-Brushed Aluminium with accent trim in black gloss......saw the hex in a demo but thought it a bit overstated

Briefly considered the 04AB Burled Walnut but knocked that on the head quickly

Hey Beemed, I'm obsessing over the whereabouts of my car as i can't seem to find it on the WW website even the car was completed on 6th Feb so it's almost 3 weeks!

Did your car come in via another logistics company that's not Wallenius Wilhelmsen? I read somewhere that there's another carrier called K Line that also operates out of SA.

It's mighty unusual that a car can sit idle in dock/parking lot wherever for 3 weeks and still not be loaded onto a ship.
