Do you mean it is barely noticeable as in the downward bit or the tailpipe is not noticeable?

The reason I am not happy is because in my opinion 320d has the ugliest (sorry) tailpipe of all the 3 series while it is not the cheapest variant. If the dealer cant do anything about it. I will find a muffler man to replace it with a dual chrome tail pipes.

Sorry I hope I did not offend you mentioning "ugly tailpipe"

Great Looking car!

Dammit...I got mine in Aug 05 and really wanted electric seats but they were a rip off...rear split seats were an option I ticked...

Everything moves on though and it's a good tactic to justify the continual yearly price increases...."we've included $4000 worth of options and only increased the price $1500"

Apparently the price stayed exactly the same. Maybe because the new Merc C Clas on its way in June?

Beautiful car!!! Always been a fan of 193's!! The reason I havn't gotten new wheels is the fact I can't decide which ones I want!

Thanks for the comments guys! So far so good I’ve had no real issues with the 320D apart from a tiny dint I found on the rear side panel just above the bumper that will be sucked out at the dealers expense (don’t you just love new car warranty!)

One thing I can say is that the engine is a brilliant piece of engineering. Having never owed a D before I did question my decision on countless occasions (to my wife's bemusement), but to be completely honest I couldn't be happier.

Its bloody brilliant!!

Congrats on your new car! Nice drive
Looks a lot like mine
Check out the OEM CF rear deck spoiler!
It transforms the rear end from just nice
to something you want to smack

Nice car. Looking at the front-on pic, wouldn't it be great if we didn't have to put number plates on the front. No drill holes, just a wicked looking front end.
