I really cheated for that one... notice that there are two 3's?

The camera never lies... until the digital photographer starts tinkering!

What you say is true .. it's a really difficult call and frankly the 530d is so good that I am by no means sure the 330i was the right decision.

At heart - like most people I am a petrol head, but I own a diesel which proves that petrols reign is probably over.

In the end though I have to get this out of my system. I've only ever had a 2.5l petrol engine before, so the 330i is something I just have to do.

I figured as much and I'll never trust your photographs ever again. I'll bet your avatar is really a squirrel.

Too many good things about the E90 to have one favourite bit! The ride/handling and engine are probably my most favourite bits - the straight six is awesome! Also, the quality of the interior, loving my leather, the driving position and all the toys: hifi, i-drive and ipod. I'm liking my blackline rear lights too, the first mod I've done, and I've ordered my second mod which hopefully will be ready for UK2. I'm not telling what the mod is so I surprise my fellow attendees. But don't get too excited its only a small mod!

You might need to remove the entire passenger compartment, but it'll be worth it Floyd!

Don't worry Floyd.

Just in case you have problems understanding paddywac or the rest of us in future, I found this website for you!

It should keep you entertained for a while!

I love the petrol BMW's, but due to the mileage I have to cover a year re- work I purchased the diesel 320d.
I really wanted the 330d, I fell in love with it the first time I dove it, but I needed good MPG so I just loaded up my 320d with options that I felt would be useful on the road whilst I covered my 25,000+ miles a year rather than spend my money on the 330d.
The best thing I find about my car is no matter how many times I drive it, it always brings a smile to my face

Then hop in it on 23 September and bring your car and your smiling face to UK2! You've seen the advertisements haven't you?

I was referring to all of the duplicate signatures advertising the meet throughout this thread. Sorry to get your hopes up for external ads. Nice thought though.

Hey...not a bad idea there Floyd!

We're obviously just not advertising this event as much as we should be!

But no really its only when I see another e90 from the driving position of my own car that I can really appreciate how nice they look. Even with the 17" wheels from behind they look really chunky and sexy.

I also love flooring my car joining a motorway in 4th.

I loved having one of the first m sports on the road, got mine late october 2005, I had never seen one before except on tinternet, hence my school boy error with the 17" wheels

So I love my car lots and could even have dirty thoughts about it if Viv is correct (as if Vivmeister would be wrong) about the standard cd or multi changer being able to play MP3 since some smackhead nicked all me cds!!
