ringing in the changes

morning folks. decided to definately change my pride and joy, hence went out in a 335d yesterday. really impressed, felt better than i remembered froma couple of years ago, and perhaps even more eresponsive at lower revs than mine. i did notice a slight hesitancy to start, where mine literally explodes into life, it was outside on the forecourt, and the salesman said they donČt like the cold! anyone know if this true? the car was an 09 with 24k. miles.the other problem was the huge gap between mine and it, 18k incl. finace outstanding. thinking of going for 5 yrs re-financing. in the mean time, i`ve also come across an 06 330d, same miles, 12k to chnge over 4 yrs hp. need to give a fast answer. so thought i`d ask opinions on the best course based on anyone elses experience. any thoughts on balloon payments? cheasper repayments, the 9k prob. at end. finally, 335 vs 330 in this case. havn`t driven 330 yet. sorry to drone on, late for work. thanks one and all. confused of manchester.

I would be wary of entering into a long term deal on an E92 at the moment unless it is a very good deal bearing in mind the F32 coming out next year.

In my experience most BMW dealers will be flexible in terms of their PCP deals, I know when my I went through getting my current E92 which is due for a change next year the starting price and what I actually paid were vastly different. Now this did take a good 45 minutes of conversation but we got there in the end, I'm hoping for a good deal on a 335i next year bearing in mind the new model will be out.

Had a 335d for a long time... Never had any issues when the car was cold.

Can't say I've ever noticed that on my 335 either.

Is the car for sale at a bmw dealership? If it is and you really like the car then I wouldn't worry too much, it will have a auc warranty which is very good.
