I love the additional equipment...

Floor mats. velour
Leather interior
Multi-function controls for s'wheel

All of which is standard kit.

No idrive might put some off.

Written by the BMW marketing apprentice I expect!

Right colour/price/transmission for me. But yeah, for resale buyers may be put off with lack of equipment

if you can mate get one with the i-drive! not only beneficial for re-sale situations but also a brilliant bit of kit to have in the car for yourself

the trim is pretty grim...but a great car...

idrive would be preferred. My insurance company will be taking away my brand spanking new F30 320d M-sport courtesy car soon though so I really need to find a replacement!.

Jesus, those are some serious inserts. Easily replaceable though. Of all the colours, it would only be graphite other than black too, so maybe worth a look. Thanks

Try these as well

Both low mileage with iDrive and may not have the HD Nav but still will have a greater resale value than the non idrive..

As P5UML has said the iDrive is really handy to have from info about all servicing, light warnings/failures to lots of info from nearest attractions on destination and so on. Yes not essential but if you have the choice, don't think twice! 335i's are going for cheap and it's a good time to buy I think and less people tend to shop for metal in winter so good way to knock off a few ..

Also try ebay / PH..

Cheers. But I'd never have a 335 with the step box. At the very least id go DCT (too expensive though), at best manual.

Noted about the idrive though : )

Great looking car. I like the fact it has a sunroof Shame it's the old Nav and it's not clear if it has heated seat.

I may well have a look at both. Couldn't live with the dash inserts on either though. Piano black all the way for me.

i understand they are relatively easy to change??
