Great choice, you'll love the 330d, it's a great Jekyll and Hyde car.

Good luck with the wait!

Good choice and welcome

For me I would ditch internet (slow and cumbersome) and adaptive suspension.....and get Viz Pack

Thanks. Bought internet as a gimmick for 70 quid and wished I have got the viz set now

The Vis Pack is fantastic! @NISFAN is right there.

However, I'd personally highly recommend the Adaptive Suspension. To me it's a great part if the Jekyll & Hyde character of my 330d. I use comfort setting most of the time and only flick it to sport when I'm on my own and the road is open enough so I can have a bit if a play...

So, I'd say keep it specified if you want a mixture of driving usage. I think @NISFAN recommends passive M Sport Suspension for a better driving experience when driven very hard.

Different strokes for different folks...

Yes commuting in mine so adaptive important to me. Don't do huge amount of night driving hence not having the vis. Can it be retro fitted ?

Adaptive sus is fantastic and gives you 2 cars in one at the flick of a button Vis pack is fantastic too but depends if you drive predominantly in the city or out in the countryside, where it is awesome and a great safety feature.

That is definitely on my day 1 drives. If it handles that road well it will handle anything. Hope it is delivered in time for you to do it

It's all riddled with cameras now isn't it? Can't do more than 30 through it

There are parts that you can except the long straight after the cat and fiddle which is where you would open it up really. However turn a sharp right there and you are back on the road to congleton and that will give as much pleasure

Nice spec and welcome! Fab car.
Not that you are asking I would as others say get xenons. It's a must in a car like this. You then get the IMO lovely LED drls. Xenons are perhaps somewhat for form but it completes the look.

So I can spent some more of your cash I think the msport plus pack is the best way to acquire it and add vis pack for virtually free on a pcp. You would get xenons,HK, big break kit, sun glass and the lovely 19's. Along with black panel it's the first on my list. (I would drop HUD and Internet) I so like the parking pack it's amazing but the reversing camera on its own would be the main reason for it.
If you have the 19's I think it's still a very nice ride as the profile is not that aggressive. But I have a 335d and non m sport suspension

Just my opinions of course and still a lovely spec.

Ps I would have loved the HUD and surround cam but had to draw the line somewhere to keep the wife happy

Cheers

Good plan! I can then loop back to macc through alderley and presbury, that'll be a nice spin

Think May have to call the dealer and add the viz. torquein you will love that spin I am sure. Silk Road with no cameras is a good blast on the way back if you feel like it and it is clear
