I just like to start off by saying what a great website this is. I have learnt a lot in the past month reading though everyones comment so
I thought I share something with all of u. I have actually order a new LCI 330d a few weeks ago from our valley dealership. Original, I was looking at LCI 335i but later on found out that the 3rd gen diesel engine was on it way here to Australia and just could not resist. I have a e53 diesel and e60 diesel in the family and i just love the new generation diesel. Plus the saving I ended up getting due to the LCT difference between a 335i and 330d was over $10000. 0-100km is only 0.3 sec slower than 335i not to mention the economy is around 30% better than 335i.
The only real downside is that the car will be a April Production car therefore arriving late May but most likely June. So I am still just counting my days before the new toy arrives
