Someone came into work at the BMW factory with the mother of all hangovers and just put them on.

To speak to BMW you will probably need to have writen down the cars VIN number. Is it me or do the pipes look a bit thinner than on the 335d?

Maybe it is new and genuine and has the same twin-turbo turbodiesel as the 123D

Looks like the factory have had an early beer festival at lunch.

They serve beer in most Bavarian factories. Maybe they had some brit contract workers who went on a bender.....

I have heard of workers at Ford's in Liverpool in the 80's buidling cars to their own spec on the line. Ghia seats with an L badge....

The iDrive knob doesn't mean anything does it - I thought that comes with the prof navigation?

I agree paddles would be a giveaway!

Can't you have the auto and paddles on just about anything in the 3 now?

I'd agree though that it looks like a wrongly badged 335. Though who and why would be the question.

Could be that a customer asked them to put a 325d on a 335d to make it stealthy.

right word from the dealer sorry to anyone who phoned up dealers for 325d its not my fault
Evening Mr Birch

Very good spot! The car you have seen is acutally a 335d M Sport Coupe but it has arrived from BMW with the incorrect badge of a 325d. It is being changed. Please call us when you get this message so that we can help you look for the correct car.

Thank you for your request

Regards

Mark

He has been living in Dubai with his 6 Wives and driving a Maybach Excelero to many top flight international meetings to discuss buying Burma and renting it out to Australian fishermen.

shame the BMW dealer can not spell 'actually'!!

How on earth did they stick a 325 badge on it??!!

(and the message actually reads 'oh f*CK, none of us spotted that!, we will get a new badge ordered and stuck on asap )
