Congratulations on getting your hands on this beast. I test drove it recently and I am pleased to say that the 330i is an absolute monster of an engine.

Just a couple of questions. Is it portimao blue or the regular blue?

Did you get this deal from bird automotive?

Thanks rahul_jo, It's Portimao Blue. The 330i comes with Portimao Blue while the 320ds come with the other Blue.

I've attached an image below of the 330i I saw at bird auto. This looks different from the international Portimao blue.

Is yours the same color present in this image?

I remember asking the Sales rep the exact same thing and I was told this is the Blue that is there on the 320ds, and the Portimao blue is significantly different. TBH I haven't seen the Portimao Blue in the flesh but we liked it in the pictures that we have seen.

Are you sure about this? Navneet Motors have been quite cordial and were ready to offer discounts for new 330i and followed up a lot as well.

After about 10 days of waiting, I got the delivery this Wednesday. The delivery was a no-drama, no-ribbons, no-cake delivery, which we also prefer as a family. Incidently BMW gave us an identical box of Ferrero Rocher which we had got for the sales guys. Here are some pictures for those who asked for them - the first picture is the most appealing. From an experience perspective, the exhaust note in Sports Plus sounds amazing, and the interiors are nice enough. It is a definitely a little more cramped and uncomfortably lower from the Skoda Laura I have been used to. I haven't got the time to unleash it, and in the 50 kms that I have driven so far, everyone seems to go faster than me

I also am planning to go in for a detailing and ceramic coating job from CarzSpa.

I prefer BMW because of their DNA while as a brand, nothing comes close to Mercedes-Benz in that segment. I have a preference for performance petrols and it was the 330i which won. I also considered the X3 as an option, but for our smallish family and my personal preference the X3 was again not considered.
Congratulations! Nothing like low slung petrol sedans.

BTW, same pinch. I had a 2010 Laura 1.8 TSI MT which I exchanged for 2018 F30 330i. If Laura had DSG, may be I would have continued with it and not exchanged at all, but I was really tired of the clutch pedal. When looking for a replacement, went ahead and ticked off 2 other items on the wish-list - 250BHP and RWD

Many Thanks And same pinch to you too. 250 BHP and RWD really go well together! I like my petrols too! Before the Laura TSI, I had a Ford Fusion with that naturally aspirated 1.6 engine, which liked to rev. It drove well for a large hatchback!

Congrats on the beast. The colour is absolutely stunning, almost identical to my erstwhile Swift's electric blue colour Do post some pics of the interior as well. I am hoping that they are all black to complement the sporty nature of the car?

Thanks arindambasu13, Everyone is complimenting the color even in person. It stands out a bit more than I would have liked, but I am not complaining I am sure your Swift looked "electrifying" too I will post a few interior pictures soon, at the moment its a bit too dirty. The interiors are though Black and Mocha and not all black.

Has anyone within the Delhi NCR region been able to acquire a decent discount for the 330i in the month of Feb?

Last I spoke to them. They weren't too keen on going beyond 5ish lacs.
