Any update on the above issues reported by you occurring on your car to Navnit Motors?

Anurag.
Thanks! The folks at Navnit Motors said it happened because of "moisture" and fixed it in less than half n hour. Worked fine until a couple of days back when it happened again, though it got fine after I did the classic on-off technique few times but nevertheless, I'll be going there again and most probably ask them to replace the xenon assembly this time which they promised earlier.

Thanks! Glad you guys are liking the review. Its an honest one, though I wrote it while being half asleep as it was lying in the assembly line section since quite a while so decided to stay up late one night and finish it off

Replied to your query...Check inbox!

As far as the GC is concerned, I have done a couple of long trips (Shirdi and Lonavla) with 4-5 people on board and honestly speaking haven't scraped anything so far. You just have to be a little careful that's it.

Just landed on this review after seeing your pics in the BMW 320d official review page. What a car man!!! That bumper and those wheels are simply outstanding. It really stands out from the regular 3ers. Hearty congrats on the ride and I hope I will join the club soon.

One small query though. Is there any noticeable difference in the engine noise after the M Performance kit was installed?The only thing I don't like in the 320d is that gruff engine noise.

Couldn't stop laughing when I read this line. Some more details on the consequences please?

Thanks once again! Coming to the engine noise, honestly, I didn't drive the car in it's stock form much as I ordered the MPPK at the time of booking itself but I'd say the gruff note is still there though much much less than my X1 which has the same N47 engine...

A friend owns a stock E90 320d which I drive quite frequently and even compared to that my car feels almost 50% quiter so it'd be safe to say that the vibrations improves a little after the Performance kit..

So we will complete an year together come February 27th and as I have repeatedly mentioned before it's been a fantastic experience owning this little diesel rocket. Few new modifications I carried out during this time is new M5 style rims in 18", 245/40R18 Yokohama Advan A13C tires, BAVSOUND Stage one audio upgrade (replacement speakers) and M Performance LED door sills. Here are some new pics; I'll be sending her for premium detailing as she needs a little bit of pampering just before our first anniversary
