Cool Want to buy 320d executive...

...automatic...as a daily commuter

2 questions:

1.) Is there a big difference between stock hifi / hifi loud speaker system / logic 7 ?

2.) How much should I pay for the 320d with m.paint/xenon/sunroof/PDC f&r/sport suspension/logic 7?

thanks

323i ended in 2000 didn't they?

I'd rather get a newish 318 than an old 323i for daily driving, better on the fuel economy.

Talk to Michael @ Alto BMW Artarmon. He is very easy to deal with.

Me too

I just can't wait until June... or Lucky enough to think about it extra time.
As a former E46 325ci user, I am not sure about this engine.
So I need test drive first. Then I will decide 325i or 320d.
Well of course, I can wait until e92... Sometime late next year?

It's obviously best seller E90 in Europe. But is it really fun to drive car?
Also I haven't driven any TURBO car ever. It's should be exciting.

Does anyone know about mod for 320D available in AU? Like ECU upgrade or exhaust system.

Hi, I've just joined the forum after having been a silent reader for months. I've just ordered a 320d executive, sparkling graphite, sunroof and rear PDCs, $70000 on road. The dealer told me this is $5000 off the undiscounted price. It looks quite good to me on paper. I should be getting it in 2 weeks.

I test drove it first, and the demo had only 200km on it. It is certainly a lot quicker than the petrol 320i. However the power delivery is very linear, rather than a big "ooomph". So it gathers speed quite rapidly but you don't get the shove in the back that you might expect with a fat torque.

But you're always confused, the result is the same.
