Re: 159 being delivered today
But seriously... if I was being picky the only downsides are
1. I have to work the gears a little bit more than in the BMW - it's easier to get stranded in the wrong gear and have no power (but doesn't feel slower than the 320D if you're in the right gear)
2. The metallic trim in the cabin has a green tint to it which I'm not wild about. It has that really nice milled finish to it (on my Lusso), but I would have preferred it if it had been the proper silvery metallic colour. I actually thought it might have been a protective green film that could be pulled off - but it wasn't.
3. I kept getting flashed driving home tonight and as it was very dark I'm guessing it wasn't admiring ladies - I think my headlights might be set too high
Otherwise it's fantastic. So much nicer than the Beemer in every way - the interior, the exterior, the Blue&Me, the seats (Oh the seats!!), the dash layout, the handling (I never fully trusted the grip of the BM in the wet) the keyfob (okay stop me now I'm getting carried away)
