Yes, in the UK I would seriously consider it
Especially for the increased refinement and economy that people report as much as vastly improved pace.
But where I am has simply draconian Police (with guns, small dicks and no sense of humour whatsoever) that literally hide in bushes, and have specialised camera/radar cars to nab you and make money. You just never know where they are hiding (detectors are illegal). But usually at the optimum place to catch you out - not black spots.
Thankfully you only get a fine, no points. The amount of fine is graded - one friend got caught at slightly silly speeds and paid a staggeringly huge amount
and got a suspended 2 year jail sentence, he's now driving like Miss Daisy. I even got caught in a 10km/h Parking zone racing about at 16km/h ...
Bloody reckless, I am.
My usual journey is almost exclusively city driving (50 km/h ~30mph) and the odd A road (80 km/h ~ 50 mph) so having the already quick 335D even faster would just be frustrating.
