No Paul, you were right the first time- the mirrors are just an aerodynamic disgrace.

Perhaps it is dual fuel and will run off petrol and diesel?

Chris, Sergei Industries may well provide a CF aftermarket solution soon...under the brand name 'MadBargains'.

As the Carlos & Booforty combination has taught me on many an occasion, laughter is always the best medicine....as such, I hope this gets you 'stoned'.

If the damned bikers would put on their fookin' headlights we other users of the road might be able to see them in smaller, more aesthetically appealing mirrors.

Viv, your photochop makes that beast look like a hippo.

Yes, Viv, the car certainly has very "big ears".

I've just read through the 70 page spec sheet and note the 330D is just 0.01 sec off the 335D to 62mph

But, no mention of the sports models and I see the 330 annd 335 have 225/45 R17 tyres on all rims .

I hope the MSport models come with 18" RIMS, but they are not announced .

I want to order my 330D MSport....hope not too long to wait.

I think its normal (or it used to be) for all 3er MSport models to come with only 17" rims from the factory (e.g. check out belgian bmw.be and build a 335d) - its only BMW GB who faff about with the factory spec, decide what we can (and sometimes irritatingly can't) have and make the 18" rims standard for UK spec on the higher models (they're not doing us a favour though, the base price is hiked accordingly, or more to the point usually disproportionately).

I hope there is a new MV4 18" wheel style with the facelift - not a massive fan of the current 18" MV3s. It think it would look good on a new 5 spoke M design, though from a style point of view this seems unlikely (most M wheels are multispoke).

Note that the fact that the 17" style on the only available MSport facelift photos looks the same as now may not mean much as its a development car.

I like the style of the current rear lights on the saloon. Nice shape, look good with the blacklines (tints) These new ones will have to grow on me too.

I got my E46 320D facelift with 18" rims as standard.

Then BMW gave 17" rims to the 320D and 18" for the 330D with the E90 as standard.

I guess we are just going to have to wait for the pricing, but I really do not want 17" rims on my new 330D and also, I dont want to have to pay too much to get the 18"s.

Anyway, good things come to those who wait, so I better keep waiting and I'll be dring a Ka for a few months after next weekend when my 320D goes
