Works great so far

for 320d Sport Line

Look and Style - By far the most modern looking BMW. It looks meaner and sportier than the outgoing 5th generation 3 series. Especially, the corona rings (LED) are a treat to watch. Comfort - I must admit, after having driven a 5th generation 3-series in the US, I was worried about the ride quality for rear-passengers. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find the latest generation BMW sold in India is very well-adapted for Indian conditions. Most imperfections of the Indian roads are absorbed effortlessly - thanks to the comfort mode suspension settings. However, you will feel the really bad bumps. The 5-series is better on this front. I suspect, if you get rid of the run-flats, the ride quality would be even better. Pickup - After having had a 255-bhp, 330i in the past, I know, driving a 320d would be a step-down, in the area. However, for Indian conditions, this puppy has enough juice under the hood to keep you ahead of the pack at all times. Of course, the acceleration isn't linear. It needs to rev close to 2000 rmp to start showing its true colors. Hey, for a great mileage & killer looks - this is good enough. One negative is that at lower RPMs, this does sound a bit like your Dad's old Ambassador ( unlike the legendary sounds made by the petrol variants). If this is a deal-breaker, read no further and get a real sports Car. Mileage - In EcoPro mode, I easily got 12 kmpl in bad bumper-bumper traffic in Hyderabad. And when I drove on the nearby freeway, it was easily clocking 15kmpl. Best Features - Efficient Dynamics, seats, interiors Needs to improve - BMW needs to stop treating Indian consumers as idiots. They need to realize that they are near the end of selling to the "nouveau riche" or the yelliah/malliah/reddybuilder/politician/businessman types. If they want to sell more in future, they are going to have to deal with the extra knowledgeable, internet savvy, globally aware, well educated & demanding Indians. So, quit playing games like introducing meaningless stripped-down variants for Indian markets, not allowing wide color choices (interior/exterior) & delaying launches of newer looking models for India just to clear the lots with older generation cars. Give us all the variants/features that Americans & Europeans get. Afterall, we pay over twice as much as those guys, don't we ? Overall Experience - No regrets so far. To be extra safe, have BMW secure & BSI ultimate. Indian road conditions are so unpredictable. So, you really don't want to take chances.
