Congratulations - can I ask what sort of fuel return your getting for round town driving? Thinking of taking the plunge but my commute is mostly in traffic so it could deem the beast usless.... at the moment I'm shopping for 320d's....

Since remapping my pre-lci 330d I get 38-41mpg around Milton Keynes (roundabouts mostly with dual carridgeways), and 45-50mpg on a long run.

yea i got my wheels from Mark he is a top bloke!

hmm about the CSL's they are nice, the colour would pretty much match the car thats the only thing! i know what its like cos i my e92 is sparkling graphite

with the Msports in sparkling graphite i feel the best colours are either gloss black which matches the trim OR hyper silver for the contrast!

gun mental/anthracite just blends in too much...just my 2p's worth

Nah, its good to get a different perspective!

I think the gloss black would be too much and maybe ruin the looks, so the Hyper Silver are looking a good option.

Oh the friggin choices

Garage List
You've made a great choice OP, I've had my 330d for a couple of months now and am still loving it. I was goin to get it remapped straight away but thought I'd wait til next spring and it will be like having a new car again with a remap.

Mpg wise, I get 38mpg on my commute and around 44 mpg on a motorway trip
