Thanks dxb. I'd like to try some 1/4 miles, looks like your the man for that! I know it ain't no 335d but be fun none the less. How often does Santa Pod do RWYB days?

I thought it was about time I stopped lurking and started contributing!

Finally joined the BMW fold a couple of weeks ago;

2008 e91 335d M Sport
9k on the clock
Sparkling Graphite
Xenons
Black Dakota Leather
Bluetooth
Heated Seats, Part Electric

If I've got to get an estate car while in my 20s I can't honestly think of a better all-rounder (and our basset hound seems to agree!)

I will try and get some pics this weekend if the weather holds out.

Loving it so far.

Another BMW newbie here, bought my 330D in January and loving it ever since. Lurked here long enough, so I thought it's only polite to sign up! Drove a R*nault for 8 years so the 6 pot diesel sounds like a supercar by comparison

Newbie here.

Just got a 2007 E92 330d. Titanium Silver with Coral Red leather.

Am looking for any info on companies that retrofit the Bluetooth and I-pod options as BMW want fortunes to do it. Any info will be gratefully received but I'll have a good search in the mean time.

Thanks.

Well there's a coincidence! I've just come on here to say hello to everyone myself, and guess what i'm getting tomorrow?

Exactly the same as that, minus the sunroof, can't wait.

And here's me thinking i'll be all "individual" with michigan blue!!!

Gave it a quick once over, then the heavens opened. I'll get better pics when/if the sun ever shines.

Already asked a few questions and had a lot of good advice but thought it was time to say hi, got the baby of the fleet in comparison to some of you guys but at 21 insurance is a nightmare. Bought a E90 318i about 7 months back and really enjoying it. Used to have a highly modified hyundai coupe and before that a mk2 escort so not used to so much computers, just bought a remus exhaust, lowering springs and K&N replacement filter so will be sure to keep you updated. Any info regarding where to get a good deal on performance parts would be great, thanks again.

Welcome Danny and ABYSSDTE. Nice colour but I would have expected Michigan Blue to be considerably darker.

Hi! I am a real Newbie!
Have just sold my 320i 55 reg, out of which have had 3 1/2 years of the best motoring since 1962, when I had my first real motor. Before that I had a Heinkel Bubble Car which was in fact quite nippy what with rack & pinion steering and hydraulic brakes. I had similar feelings of a nippy car when I test drove a 320d, but did'n't go for diesel for three reasons, one at the time, a 'd' was just outside my budget and two, my yearly mileage was on the low side to justify a diesel and three at the time the diff in road tax was'n't much.
I have sold now as it was an opportune time not to be missed.
So have stashed away the money and tend placing an order for a 320d for delivery in the new tax year of 1st Sept, but hav'n't made up my mind whether to go for an SE or M-sport.
I have been booked in for a test drive, 320d M-sport, next week to see how my better half & I get on with the harder supension, as it seems to be a subject of some debate.
I will let you know the outcome.

Welcome - you will find the m sport a little stiffer but better in terms of handling.
