Anyone waiting on a 330d M Sport?

Hi Guys,

I am still waiting for my 330d M Sport, originally supposed to be with me end of September, latest delivery date is 22nd November!

To make things worse I have recently sold my 320d M Sport Tourer and now in a Hyundai i30 hire care, as you can imagine the next few weeks are going to be insane but a problem shared is a problem halved!

Is anyone else facing a similar situation?

Yes, me too, I ordered on the 4th September, expected delivery 03/01

I did get an end October date, but discarded that one to get the new NAV unit.

Nah ... Ordered End of July - so quite a wait. But the timings perfect. My current Merc goes back from lease on Oct 12th. Happy days.

I have ordered a 330d 10th august with a del date of end of nov. under the same plans and like you am stuck in a double the lead time problem and actually want a car now. Which lease broker did you order throu? Did they allow you to cancel? At no charge?

I'm with central and they won't let me cancel and keep promising to bump me up the list and doing nothing? Don't even call me back?

Your help would be appreciated?

I was initially told 2nd week October, I ordered 3 months ago
Now they are saying end October.
My PX tax is up at the end of this month so they are going to have to lend me a set of wheels, that will not please them I bet.

If only you'd waited for 2 weeks, you'd have got a BW45 F30 with the new nav! Like me, you were a bit premature.

Mine is now BW48 and my ex's BW44. Got them swapped! But what they could not do was move BW44 to BW45. If there are some delays, then BW44 could become BW45. I'm praying, but not too hard 'cause it might push BW48 to BW50 and that will be a bit risky.

Roll on December. Best Xmas present. I'm off to shop for the wrapping!

Decisions, decisions.

Well having said that, if I'd have waited 2 weeks I might have had my order cancelled by now

Hi,

I ordered mine at the end of August and i have a build date of w48.

I was initially a bit annoyed but actually it matters not as long as it does turn up eventually!

Looks like you hit the sweet-spot between getting new NAV and not getting a car at all

Just been notified that mine has slipped another week. Promised last week, now going to be w/c 15th October. Car shown as having left plant last week, but no reason for why its taking 3 weeks to get it to the UK.

Hi Richard,

I'm a little jealous of you having your 330d already! I only ordered mine last weekend (Sat 29th) so the delivery date the dealer has given me is w/c 17th Dec - I guess this could easily slip into new year, as I'm about to add lumbar support to the spec.

I'm interested to know how your car drives. I test drove and 330d M Sport Touring and really liked it for it's easy, relaxed torque and very nice engine sound (preferred the sound to the 328i I'd driven minutes earlier). I've driven some fast beemers and a good mate has an E90 535d and this felt pretty much as quick, though I noticed a bit less grunt low down and at the top end (to be expected with one turbo against 2). The car I drove had just 90 miles on it, so I guess it was a bit tight. BTW I swore I'd never drive an auto until old age hit me, but I really like the 8-speed sport auto.

The demo car had standard M Sport suspension, with no adaptive and I found that, while the car was generally pretty controlled, it was a bit lacking in control in fast bends for my taste - tad too much roll and softness.

I've read a couple of magazine reviews that say the adaptive suspension significantly tidies up the handling over standard M Sport. Do you have the adaptive? Either way, I'd love to know what you think of the overall drive.

What spec did you go for? I've gone for:
- F30 330d M Sport in Estoril blue
- Adaptive suspension
- Sport hydraulic steering
- M sport brakes
- Visibility package
- Pro Media Package
- Heated front seats
- Harmon Kardon speakers
- Lumbar adjustment (which I'm about to add)
- 19" wheels

Do you have the Touring or saloon?

Thanks
Dave

I drove much the same car as you, found the same results as you, I can add that I have adaptive on my X3 35D M Sport and use it in sport as soon as the car is started, much improved cornering and firmer steering, so I ordered all these on my 330D M Sport touring "Delayed" till end of October now
