330D Coupe

Just got home and the sun went down, but managed to grab a couple of quick shots. Will take it somewhere a bit more photogenic tomorrow and post a few more.

I have noticed quite a few subtle differences on the interior over the sedan. I'll try to highlight a few with pictures too.

The 3ltr engine sounds wonderful compaired to the 320d. Still grinning like an idiot.

That looks superb - congratulations!

Titanium silver really does it justice and the fin on the back is pretty smart. Keep the pics coming... would be nice to see some of the jade grey interior and sports seats.

Enjoy it!

That is quite a superb combination of colour options/wheels you have gone for... and the first pic showing the jade grey is stunning.

Yeah, time will tell on the light coloured seats, but with a little care it should last a good few years.

Does anyone know if the sensitivity of the automatic lights can be adjusted? My headlights are coming on when it still more than light enough for the rings.

Have you enabled the Datyime Running Lights? This is something I think I'm planning on having enabled.

The E92 looks so good... Jade grey just might be the best colour I've seen for the coupe.

Mark,

Do you get those brake calipers standard with the 330d also? I thought the big ones were only supposed to be fitted to 335d and 335i.

and how is the gear change? smooth or punches you in the face?

Sweet ride by the way. Congrats

Beemer, I did have daylight runners on, but my auto headlights are coming on too early, so it's booked into the dealer on Tuesday to get the sensitivity adjusted. Until then, I'm running without them.

Stryker, The brakes are standard for the 330d, and they work really well As for the gears, the first 50 miles were a bit chunky, but after 200 miles, everything is starting to come smooth. I've just got back from a couple of hours enjoying some open Somerset countryside, a thoughourly wonderful drive. Also, the 330 doesnt have the sports suspension but it still provides a better ride and more feedback than my E90 saloon did.

Averaged 41.5mpg for the whole trip, which given all the hills and tight bends, was pretty damn good.
