Well, it's released here soon. I will be getting a new 323i instead but it was a contender. I'll still be going to the launch though. A bit slow I think as its 0-100kmh (or 0-62mph) is 9.5secs - somewhat slower than a 323i's 8secs.
It is a good try though (IMO). Post responses and I will upload images and brochures when to hand. I can also scan and upload the 3series brochure for Australia if anyone is interested.
