There are only 2 sedan (E90 LCI) variants are available in India bro, the 320d and the 330i. I wouldn't mind getting the 330i but the gas prices are too high. A liter of Diesel costs Rs. 48 ($0.95) whereas the Gasoline costs around Rs.80 ($1.6) per liter. & personally I loved the 335i when I drove it in London but I just don't feel that the 330i is overall a better performer than the 320d.

Wow it was faster than I thought for a 4 cyclinder.

Overall, I like the interior, the steering wheel & the pedal feel. But...I still like the look of the E90....
Thanks for your input. The feelings are mutual. The E90 LCI feels like its on the sports mode by default
