All these 335d's.

Chris, the MSport always looks good in LeMans Blue, but the lemon interior really sets it off.

Tony, pure understated class. The upgraded 17" look great and should nicely set it apart from all the others out there.

...and both, the blacklines just suit the car so much better than the standard clusters.

Hope to see some of you at UK3

I think the 07 plates look rubbish. Not as nice as the 05 plates. They were the authentic originals....

No problem Tony.

I hope you can make it on the 17th. Although we've only organised 2 previous meets, they've both been a great experience for everyone.

All the best.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you Raggie. Good luck mate! Be patient, dealers are pretty good at getting cars to customers when all the paperwork is in order ..... they want your cash and they know you want your baby:rocks:

Very nice indeed, harpalb!

Check your PM box- we need you & your car at UK3, if only to make our American friends extremely envious!

All the best.

Well i know this is an old thread but it seemed like the right place to put some pictures up of my new machine which I'm totally thrilled with - E92 330d SE in Montego Blue.

Would have done this 2 weeks ago when I picked it up but my girlfriend managed to fry my wireless network at home so have had to set up a new one!

Enjoy the piccies - and hope they help any of you out there who are considering colours & internal trim. I'm delighted with my choices, and pleasantly surprised by the Jade Grey leather that I hadn't seen in the flesh before I ordered. It has a vry subtle green tint to it in some light which is nice.

Very nice, lovely in fact (I would have to say that as mine is Montego Blue with Jade Grey)

Is that the M short shift knob you have fitted? Is it easy to fit, what parts do I need, where do I get them? I'm so tempted to switch mine over to a short shifter.

Yes - one spotters badge awarded to Z4Beemer!

Before I ordered I test drove a 330d saloon M sport followed straight after by a 325i coupe with the standard wheel and manual shift and my first reaction was MUST GET THE M SPORT WHEEL & SHIFTER!!

The parts are all available through your BMW dealer and they ordered them in and fitted just before I picked the car up, so it was all there from day one.

Total cost for M Wheel & shifter plus fitting was 461 quid, so use that as a yardstick if they try to charge you more. I guess you could just buy the parts and get an Indie dealer to fit them for a bit less (or even try yourself!!).

You won't regret it - the wheel feels brilliant and the shifter is nice and low so you can keep your arm on the armrest whilst using it. Go for it!

Just thought - let me know if you want the part numbers of either and I'll post them up.

Do you know what, I bought my E90 on the 16th Feb 07 2 weeks before the new registration - I got £3k off list plus another £1.5 k towards my deposit and an rather inflated trade in value on my IS200!

altogether saved about £5.5k - you can keep your 07 plates, i am more than happy with my 56.

Cheers

You can get a better deal from this guy on ebay. I've bought 5 wheels from him previously and his service is spot on.

Thanks for info Slaz. I would probably just go for the M shifter. I'll give the dealers a call for more info.

However when you come to trade in or sell, those two weeks may have cost you another thousand pounds.
