A candidate replacement motor found.

Most of you will know of the accident that I had on the 27th May (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=536916). Zurich have only just inspected my car, so the bill for the hire of the nice white 335d Coupe I am driving around in is accumulating nicely. Hopefully this will get resolved soon. I have been looking for a suitable replacement for the full five weeks and have decided to go ahead and reserve this one. It's a bit covered in flies and needs a scrub up but doesn't look too bad. Hopefully I'll get a cheque soon that will enable me to pay for the thing!!!

Looks tidy.

I'm sure after 5 weeks searching you will know it's the right one.

I doubt it very much - he did not seem the type to be a forum participant.

What spec were you looking for, and at what budget. This was for sale on Auto Trader.

The 335d has plenty more grunt, but that is partially disguised by the manual box in the 330d - which provides for a more immediate response when you want to give it some welly to overtake a car.

The 330d has a much more pleasant engine note - its more of a deep gruff rumble, whereas this 335d has a much more clattery diesel quality to it.

The coupe is a very different drive, the suspension seems to have a lot more give on the 330d saloon, I'm wondering if the bushes are a bit knackered. It may just be a function of age/mileage. The 330d has 50k miles on it and is a 2007 car whereas the 335d is a 60 plate with about 12k miles.

is the new one exactly the same as the old one (except different colour), did you get all the options that you were after?
