Congratulations Indra! It's a great car! One of the best diesels in the business! Start a separate thread with pictures and your ownership-experience of the 320D! It would be very interesting especially if you decide to customize it!

And could we have more pictures of the white dusty car beside yours? It looks like a poor E30 318i perhaps?

What colour have you choosen for the exterior and interiors?
Indra that looks like an old 3 series covered in dust. Do have any more pictures of it.

Do look out for a Silver SL63 AMG that was delivered in Goa. The owner is Delhi based but has a house in Goa too. Will check if the car is still in Goa or has gone to Delhi.
BMW does have a lot of options! I love their list of wheels on offer! The 320D unfortunately isn't kitted up like the 325i, although a quick look at the customization book that BMW provides can change that!

Speedy, are you referring to Liv2drv's SL63 AMG? Does he have one?

Yes I have got the new rims. Exterior is alpine white and interior is beige. The car in the dust is some Merc.

Please let me know the place where the SL is , I will personally go there and get pics.

Sorry cant get the pics of that poor Merc(its not a BMW).


When I was getting my 320d delivered there came a BMW Z4 which had come for registration but was bought by some guy in Pune. Went for a drive it with the top down. It was really amazing. Here are some pics. In some pictures you can see my 320d in the background. Will post pics of the 3 series tomorrow with E280 and the C200 K.

Since its late night couldn't click any good pics. But I got one pic of the headlight. All I can say about this car is that its has a lot of torque with amazing handling. Ripped it very hard tonight and it always tends to put a smile on your face.

EDIT: found some ppics of the 320d with the C Class.

Congrats Indra. That's a nice pic to start off. Let me make a guess, next pic will be of the wheels. Buddy, why don't you start a new thread to post pics and ownership experiences of your 320d.

No i am not refering to Liv2drv, as i do not know who the car belongs too. I was informed of it by a friend from Delhi.

Neat combo and nice that you opted for better wheels. Same 16" or have you gone to 17".

I was informed off it by a friend and will ask him. I guess it would be registered in Goa and spend some time there and then move on to Delhi.

Great pictures Indra. The rims do look nice on the car. The Multi spoke that come on the 325 like the ones i have would look great too. Any reason for not going for the saddle brown interiors.

Word of caution do not rip the car hard or slow for atleast 3000 kms. Then for the next 2000 kms open slowly. Giveing her a taste of the gradual speeds. This would ensure your car stays in condition for a long time. If you intend on changeing her in the next one or two years then rip her all you want. My car has done 4500 kms and i started opening her after 3500 kms. In the initial period never took her over 1500 or 2000 rpm and now give her a touch of 7000 rpm once in a while. Drive safe and congrats again.

HEy indra,
How is the torque compared to to the c220 cdi ?
I guess the c220 has about 7 kgm more right ?

According to me the the 320d feels way faster than the C220 CDI. I just drove the C220 CDI only once.

"D" stands for Deutschland which is Germany in german.All my cars have the D since my dad loves Germany.

Here are some pictures. Sorry for the bad picture quality.

3 looks brilliant. If i was to pick, i would any day choose a beemer over a merc. Great choice. I think you have opted the BL variant cos it lacks xenons.

OT- Your dads love for germany surely reflects in the number of germans in your garage.

I too have driven both and felt the 3 on the more agile and torquey side. Maybe the merc is quicker in numbers, but the beemer gives more of the feel. My go was 160kmph in the new 320d. Love it !
