Okay so after having it for a couple days managed to get a dent on the roof, not entirely sure how possible something got jammed while the roof was coming down!!! So it will be visiting the body shop soon.

They don't sell those here. Congrats. What's the 330d mileage and cost of diesel vs petrol these days?

Thanks. There isn't really that much in it probably a 1:1.5 ratio fuel wise. I do about 25K+ miles a year so the diesel is a better option as they would last longer.

So mid 43.4s mpg vs 28. With the 335i you'd spend $5,946 a year or 4,106. With the 330d you spend $3,996 or 2,759. So basically you save 1,300 a year with the D version. Real money. Prices on both look about the same. So you need to decide if the extra cost is worth having the extra power. Here in the US gas prices are 2/3 cheaper on gas so it's a no brainer. Gotta get on that government and put people in who don't tax the crap outta you. Half of your gas prices is taxes. Highest in Europe. Here it's about 5-10%.

Looking good. Nice subtle additions too.

Shame about the roof. Hope not too expensive to rectify.

I have always gone with that diesel engines tend to last longer than petrol and together with the high miles it tends to be the best option. Diesel and Petrol prices are the same here around 1.09/litre. Then you have the maintenance costs of 335i which tends to be more. Quite a bit to consider all comes down to money somewhat.
