Spent about 6 hours driving today, probably the slowest and lightest throttle I have ever driven and only returned 35mpg. Normally I only avarage 29 to 31

75% Motorway
25% London traffic

40+ in the 330d will be ok.
45 to 50 and I will be well happy.

Wow I thought I had a heavy right foot, I average 39 mph on mixed driving - must be driving in London.

Here you can have multiple social/psychologic Phds. on the subject.

Women drive carrera's also, but of them living this dream of males, most would prefer to drive a mid class diesel underpowered SUV. When they drive the Porsche, it is because the man obliges them to. Since you only have one second car in the household and when money comes in at middle age, the tension between women desires and males only grow bigger!

When it comes to a divorce, they probably use it as argument to prove to the judge they are abused since they had to drive the Porsche Turbo S to go the shopping center!

Interesting to read the initial reports.

I seem to have been lucky with the dealer as the car was ordered beginning of July and is already here and PDIed.

Just waiting for 1st Sept to pick it up on its 62 plate.

... VW passat cc 170 - a great looking car with an awful dsg gearbox.

Very happy to get back into a BMW. Interesting to see how it compares to the previous e90 and e60 I had.

Thanks!!!!

Interesting on your date, the dealer indicated last week in October as a potential build date for mine......does that mean they build them in batches of similar models at BMW???

I then changed my spec, and was told that End Oct would probalby not be possible.

By the sounds of it they are fitting the current iDrive until it runs out of stock.....November build is a definite for phasing in the new version, so being end October you could be lucky. Fingers crossed for you.

If you have ordered through a dealer, perhaps instruct them to make sure it is the new version??? .....I would

EDIT: Have you spec'd professional media? 609? Think new version only applies to 609 Nav
