Hot looking car FS. But I do not like those rims - look like after market ones to me.

12 kmpl is nice - I know I can do better

Drive safe and take good care of the mean beast.

When do I get to drive ? Main chalaon ?

With the BSI for 5y/100k km, it's almost 32L.

Brilliant car bought with the head not the heart. I myself have been very keen on this CE version @ 25L ex showroom, it sounds nice.

Thank G0D they are using some nice alloys for a change. I found the initial 320d's alloys hedious.

Great buy. Have fun & keep us updated.




Cheers

Ricky, the car was bought with the head was well as the heart Heart longed for a Beemer and brought us from an Accord, and the head ensured that we picked the CE.

BTW the car will be cheaper than what you've mentioned. In Mumbai it is 23.95 ex-sh, in Delhi / Gurgaon it has to be lower than that.

Congrats man, and to my surprise those alloys looks better than highline to me

I guess this correct price for BMW 3 series, anything above 30 feels too much for 3 or C.

The ex-showroom price of all BMWs is same across India - 23.95 L ex-showroom.
For Gurgaon : Registration + Tax is approx. INR 66k; Insurance 75k, Secure 55k. BSI could be anything between INR 1.6 - 3L p.a. (depending on the year/kms combo you pick). Anyway, BSI is an absolute must to ensure peace of mind!

Excellent choice flyingspur. Needless to say, the car looks absolutely fantastic; specially because of the color. And i agree unanimously that the your rims look much better than the ones on highline. Actually i noticed this is quite common when it comes to BMW. I personally love the rims on a 520d rather than a 530d. Wonder why so. Anyways, Congrats on the beauty. Enjoy every mile in it.
