Beautiful car & amazing interiors!
13.3 kmpl & average speed of 31.4 kmph in 4+ hours?
Seems like you have been stuck in traffic most of the time. Or am I missing something here?

Beautiful review and what amazing interiors! Liked the soft brownish color.
Am sure you could not have been so content in a Accord or a Camry.

Morphin congratulations on the your new ride.And thanks a lot for writing such a detailed review(excellent pics).I have a question.Is your bmw the new 2009 facelift version that has just been launched a few days back?I think it is the 2008 version but not too sure.

You have me sold on the White Beemer.

I have always wanted to own one and now I am really getting tempted ( Although the pocket's empty !! )

Excellent review !! And great Pics.

What was the exact OTR Price in Delhi ? And also did you get any discounts ?

An excellent review, succint and fun to read. Congratulations!

I think the 3-series is the best looking beemer of the lot. Those headlamps are neither too flamboyant (5 series) nor too boring (7 series). And from how you describe it, it seems to be the most fun-to-drive!

Wish I had the moolah to have one!

Thanks Abhinav,Indian1979,Sanjay,JKdas,Elito,Pulsar, Harry 10,Avishar,Iraghava,Vkochar and Architect.
Well as mentioned in the review the car is a 2008 model as i got more than 10% discount on ex showroom and that I felt was a steal.Also my bank gave me a 10.5% interest rate only for december floating so i thought it was a good deal.
The thing with 2009 is that It only has minor changes except for a brand new Idrive.So the discount I was getting was much more value for money for me.
Will post detailed review of Idrive at 6month review because by then problems will also be highlighted.
Well the speed thing alas is bad huh, hehe.Well I was stuck in a jam for 1hour and the avg speed was low.Also city traffic you dont get to drive constantly at 80-100Kmph so yeah I think thats the avg speed we all travel at.Also am trying to run in the engine so havent tested very high speeds and Rpms.
Also did i mentionthe FE is awesome at 14l to a Km.It went down to 13 due to 1hour jam but thats awesome for a diesel.
