The wait is over....LCI AW E92 335d!

Hi Everyone,
Just wanted to show off the new addition that I picked up yesterday.
60 Plate E92 LCI 335d

Spec is as follows:
205 Automatic Gearbox
2B6 19" light alloy Double-spoke style 313M
481 Sport seats, front
494 Seat heating, front 4AE Armrest, front with sliding adjustment
4B9 Fine Brushed Aluminium interior trim
524 Adaptive Headlights
609 Navigation-system Professional
612 BMW Assist
616 BMW Assist online portal
620 Voice Control
633 Bluetooth phone prep + telematics
688 Loudspeaker system - harman/kardon surround sound
6FL USB interface
704 M Sport suspension
715 M aerodynamic bodystyling
760 Exterior trim, High-gloss Shadowline
761 Sun protection glass
775 Headlining, Anthracite

522 Xenon headlights
534 Automatic Air Conditioning
544 Cruise control with brake function
563 Extended Interior Light Package
5AK LED eyebrow light elements
694 CD changer preparation

Changed the chrome grille to Black already!

I am in the most unbearable position at the moment of having a 3.0 twin turbo diesel engine under the bonnet and not being able to use it as it has to be 'run in'!

So far though she's driving like an absolute beaut!
Although 29.1mpg this morning driving slowly was a worry. Hope she gets better after a few hundred miles.
Will post a full review after coming back from a trip to the K-Show, Dusseldorf Germany.

Wow - what a stunner!

I think you can safely call that "fully loaded" too!

Has to be "run-in"? What is it, a 1970's Vauxhall Viva? Running-in is a thing of the past. Drive 'em mean and keep 'em keen!

Lovely car.

I agree, don't baby it under 2k, just drive it normally after letting it warm up.

Nice. I wouldn't worry about running in, just dont cane it. Keep it below about 2500 RPM for 10 mins to allow it to warm up, then below 4000 RPM for the first thousand miles or so. You will still be going very quickly.
Noticed your car had Pirelli P Zero's. Were they dealer fitted or was it OE ?
Thanks.

Great choice of car. One of the best!

amount of spanking I gave mine!

Woof! I take it you drove a 335d before you bought the car? If not then you're going to get a shock when you decide to floor it! If not then the knowledge of what is waiting for you must be pretty tough to deal with!

Lovely car, enjoy!

Stunning car, good spec too!

When my mum got her 1 series Diesel, after 1,000 miles you could definately tell the engine had free'd off and didnt feel as tight, I have no idea if BMW run their engines in from new or not, if your worried best people to ask would be BMW rather than "give it death from day 1" or "drive like a nun"

Personally if it was me, i'd run it for 1,000 miles off boost and lowish revs, i've saw fresh engines wear pistons from being hammered, shells arent a prob it's just the bores/pistons and rings that need to wear in properly.

Whenever I heard someone say "just give it death from day 1!" I ask if they can afford to rebuild it again.....usual answer is NO. but seeing as you have warranty i'll ask.....do you want the hassle?

All that money spent and not even a few quid extra spent on a set of carpet mats .... the floor will end up horrible with all the wet winter weather !! If I didn't have mats in my cars I think i would have to remove my shoes before getting in !!
