Black Dakota leather with blue stitching, 18" 193M's, Xenons, Bluetooth, Loudspeaker system, heated seat blah blah blah.......love it.

Looking good.... Saw a few LCI 3 Series on the road today and they look very nice and aggressive in M Sport guise.

Shame about the 1er though.

Life cycle impulse. It's BMW speak for facelift.

Difficult call because they are so different, more so than I expected. M Sports suspension is more forgiving on the 3 than the 1er, but as its bigger the chassis doesnt feel as tight - but then it is a saloon after all. The engines smoother in the 3 but I'm comparing the 184bhp 320d againest a 143bhp 118d; apples and pears.

Miss my frameless doors with drop down windows.

3's also got a lot more kit in it so I am experiencing more luxury but then in a fully spec'd 1er I'm sure you would feel luxury I do love the 3 cant really fault the 1er though for what is was. Each to their own.

Interesting that they are putting the chrome grills on non 6 pot cars. Looks lovely especially with the dark chrome wheels, coloured stiching and tints.

Is the M sport plus available on other engine sizes like the 33xd's?

That's exactly the same car as I was going to order, but with a baby on the way I didn't want to pay the extra tax and got lured into a (13% BIK) 320d ED, which I should get tomorrow.

Looks fantastic BTW

Nope, Just the 318i/320i and 318d/320d

Same for the exclusive model.

Darryl - What is the legroom like for rear passengers, I've just asked for quotes on a specced up 320d/520d as I'm looking to replace my 123d soon. I was given a 520d touring as a courtesy car over the Christmas period, and really loved the driving experience, the dash/dials look just amazing on one sheet of glass.

Legroom in the 520d was fine, but didn't get a chance to look at the 3xx at the time.
