P-Plate legality?

Hey everyone, just a quick question that I wanted to ask you all. Is the E90 325i P-plate legal? If it's not, which models in the E90 range are p-plate legal? T

Heck even 335i is legal over here (since the OP didn't mention which state!)

Hi ,

As indicated it depends on state - if a vehicle has a `turbo` even low pressure ie VW Golf, they are not P plate legal in QLD.

Check with your local RTA / Transport department in the state in which you live.

Cheers..

from what i'm told in NSW any turbo or V8 is off limits. I'm all for looking out for the kiddies but farking stupid laws like this (assuming it is true) just go to show how ignorant politicians really are. After all a 320d will pull the cover off a rice pudding but its not gonna do much with it.

Thanks a lot guys! Wish I had money for a 320d or even a 330d.

Reason for asking is that we have a pre-LCI 325i and I might be taking that while parents upgrade to something else.
