I must admit I'm considering Glacier Silver (black ext trim) and Mocha. Saddle is quite strong and I may tire of it. Mocha detailing is good too.

I've only seen a swatch of Mocha, it's a good colour, quite dark. So much depends on where you live as to what colour looks best. I'm in the dark and damp UK so I prefer lighter colours inside. As...

If the 28d were named as it is across most of the planet your expectations would be set correctly. It's really a 20d.

I'm moving from a 30D to 35D (near Manchester). The 35D is more responsive with no appreciable lag. Whilst the engine looks like it's more peaky it's actually got a broader power band.

Interesting. As in the UK we don't get the 35i in the X5 or X3 I've compared the 3 series M Sport prices.

The 330D M Sport (aka 35D X5 engine in the US) is $4,700 cheaper than the 335i.

I'm agonising over Mocha vs Saddle, all I have to go from are the photos and some swatches. I tend to like lighter interiors but Mocha with the stitching should be good.

Good info!

Is it my poor memory or have BMW played with the performance figures?

0-100kph for the 30D used to be 6.2s and the 35D was 5.8s. Now they are 5.9s and 5.3s respectively with the 35i...
