What the heack is a "fairly unloaded'd"? Is this some kind of code?

I had leatherette on an E46 325ci that I put 60k miles on and the interior held up hence my comment. Im at 23k on my 335d right now.

One thing you haven't articulated is exactly why you are buying the X5 in the first place? I think you either want the 335d as your daily driver or not. I think fantasies that a stripper 335d in LeMans blue is going to hold some awesome resale value is wishful thinking.

You guys are kidding me about the stripper comment. 335d's come with a lot of options standard versus the 328i. I do not like iDrive nor do I like Navi so other than adding premium to get leather and some other nice to have features such as BT and HK Sound, Im perfectly happy with my vehicle.

I am buying the X5d because the 335d is my wifes car today and I DD the E93 M3. I drive alot so utilizing the 335d as my DD and keeping the M3 for the weekends is something that I am considering, but by no means am required to do.

I still go back to one of my comments as to show me a recently sold 2011 Lemans Blue MSport 335d.

Oh and here is a list of Std options on a 335d
Steptronic Transmission
Power Moonroof
Xenon Headlamps
HD Radio
Rain Sensing Wipers
Power Seats w/ Memory
BMW Ambiance lighting

Also, Lemans Blue Metallic Paint and MSport package (incl rear PDC) was roughly a $4k option so again.....I want to inform everyone for those not in the know.

My M3 is a 6speed, no iDrive, and has a few meaningful options such as heated seats, rear pdc and a few others like BT, but no big ticket overpriced options.

I think there is a certain hostility to my thread as I have clearly not received the enthusiastic responses that I figured I would have received. Also, interesting how many 11' 335d owners dont have MSport......Im sure if they were informed they would have ordered it.

Hey Mr. fantasy, while we all love our cars for what they are, they are not going to be killer sought after high resale cars.

You guys crack me up. We all have the same car for a reason....we were drawn to the dynamics and efficiencies of the d. I never said my car would appreciate, but was wanting to see what the board thought about my particular config.

Other than 1 or 2 posts, everyone has been completely negative and a$$y. I ordered my 335d and received an excellent discount so as it sits today, I have equity in my car......as the depreciation has not been nearly as close to the gas counterpart. Also, interestingly enough, M3's in white are hardly sought after since the E46 M3 days so color combo does play an important factor in resale.

Oh well....Ill have 1300lbs of trq in my driveway and will smile every time I think of this thread.

I'm not saying there is anything wrong with your car. It's a fantastic car full of great features. And there is nothing at all wrong with wanting the car you want with the options you want and none of the ones you don't. I just don't understand the point of this thread and I mean that in a non-jerky way. It's not clear what you want from us.

Do you want us to talk you in to keeping the D? By all means, it's an awesome daily driver combining great power, tight handling, and Prius level efficiency. But it sounds more like you want us to convince you that your "lightly optioned" D is a great financial investment ( by virtue of the M-sport and LeMans blue) that will payoff in the next couple of years. Sorry, I just don't see it.

Biggest news item for me out of this is that you can get sport seats in leatherette! I too am a fan, at least on my current Countryman.

Good luck, whatever you decide to do.

Wow, interesting article but I think they may have their numbers mixed up on the comparison of the 3 series in gas and diesel. They show $10k! State $6,605 higher cost for a comparibly optioned diesel.

No way! I am most certain I paid just about par for my D vs a similar gas version. You of course have to include the ECO Credit.

Anybody out there think they paid a premium for their D over a similar gas version?

I just compared a stock 2011 335D with a similar 335i on KBB and it was $45,025 vs $42,925 on MSRP. That is just a $2k difference.

I paid less than a comparably equipped 335i and about $2k more than a comparable 328xi which was my alternative at the time.

So at the end of the day, I too paid less than an equivalent 335i and slightly more than a 328i. The deal I requested was ECO Credit $4500 + $3000 Dealer Discount + 2.9% BMW Financing for 60mos so it was hard to not buy this amazing vehicle.

I think if the dealer gives me anything north of $34k, I may trade it in on the X5 and consider continuing to drive the M3 until something breaks since I am out of wty and dont want a money pit, although I only have 14k miles.

This is good news for me! I'm looking for a le mans or montego blue 2010-11 335d and have been given a $35k price cap from my wife. But the cold weather and premium pkgs are pretty much required.

I believe M Sport was available in 2010, yes? I nearly bought one off of Ebay recently. Maybe some of you saw it. Sapphire Black, Chestnut interior, loaded. He too was very passionate about his car and therefore had zero bids.

There was also a white one M Sport (loaded) in San Diego that sold recently. 2011 for $36,000.

:
So was that the sum of the options? Basically a $50k MSRP car and $7.5k off that? I'd expect low 30s at best and any more would imply to me they are just dippin into the profit on the X5 to make you feel better. I am of course saying trade in value and not resale. They'd then take it and spend $1k or more doing a CPO on it and try to get around $40k for it.

Nope...

Some of us have loaded 335ds. The opposite would be an unloaded 335d. I only have the cold weather and sport packages, therefore, my car is "unloaded"/stripped/for driving only.

The "'d" is simply an abbreviation of 335d. I don't call my car a 335d...it's simply, "the 'd".

Unloaded to me has always meant no options at all. Fairly unloaded would mean to me just one or two minor options. I'd actually not consider a car with Cold and Sport as fairly unloaded. My car from the factory had one option, metallic paint, I consider my car "unloaded".

Perhaps we can agree your car is "more unloaded"?

MSport was only available in 2011 for the d. That also means LeMans Blue was only available with MSport Package.

I think that is a ZSP not ZMP. It has the sport wheels style 195 not m-sport. It also doesn't have the Msport steering wheel.

I believe you're right. Looks just like my 2010 335d with sport package other than colors.
