Which model is it? I feel the price is slightly higher. Does the car has an active BSI package?

25L for without xenons is very high. A brand new one in dec 13 was coming at 30L OTR.
Why dont u then go for a new one.
Else you can get an X1 also around 27 or so with BSI if that interests you.
Also check carwale as i was getting a used 2013 320d with BSI for 23 with around 7-8k on the odo

Its a done deal. I am not sure how much extra got paid.

In delhi I saw a few 3 series and only this one looked, drove and smelled like new...absolutely brand new. Sorry, I hate X1

That was good enough for me..Intend to keep the vehicle for a long time. Wanted Imperial blue only.

I was just going through the review again and noticed this button ( marked by red arrow) in the following pic. Don't recall seeing it in my car. What is it for?

It is for front parking sensor activation. It is available only in 328i as other variants do not have front parking sensors.

It is for activating the parking distance control system (front and rear) and it also activates the rear camera if set to do so. It is only in the 328i. In some other markets they also have many more gadgets / options like front side cameras (very useful when you are exiting a driveway into a main road), auto high beam, lane guidance warnings, front radar (if you get too close to the car in front), adaptive headlights, adaptive suspension, etc.

Can a retrofit of front parking sensor be done on a 320d F30 ? This one is a big miss I think in tight parking conditions..

The car is growing on me like crazy..it has only been a week or so. The car is certainly a Wolf in sheep clothing. Turn the sports mode ON and out comes the wolf . Growl !

Are batteries covered under the BSI pack?

Yes , unless you have a " adverse driving profile " i.e you are driving too little , they may not replace this . You can request for goodwill claim which is normally acceptable in such cases .

That's when you drive in Eco Pro, it shows how many kms have been added to the range by you driving in Eco Pro.

Would suggest a read through the manual, you will learn of many little features and tricks.
