    No, E90

    My E92 didn't have the CIC... but it was black leather with stainless trim, being a 330i it got the Sports seats too...



    If I had to buy an E9x again, I'd hold out for M-Sport trim, the M-Sport bumpers make them look much smarter than the SE's.

    Given the number of three series in the country faffing about retro fitting steering wheels and iDrive etc. seems like an unnecessary ball ache.

    Blown out the red interior one. I just don't like it. The other one has been discounted too as its a 2.0l 4 pot and i want the 6 pot engine. Bit deflated as last night I saw one of them on my driveway today, but now, nothing!

    Get a JCW Mini Roaster instead

    My 211bhp JCW Coupe (a roaster with a proper roof) is only 0.2 of a second slower to 60 than my 272bhp 330i was (probably due to the weight difference) I do miss the RWD dynamics and 6 pot smoothness, but not the mpg.

    My wife has a Cooper and I dont really want another Mini, and the real driver for the change is because since my Son sold his BMW we dont have a real 4 seater in the family now.

    I have a strong aversion to Volvos! Out of all the people I know with cars, Volvos have been the most costly and unreliable cars i know of!?

    What about an EOS, the facelift ones don't look as bad as the original model.
