Whilst I wouldn't necessarily buy it myself I'm surprised they seem to be having such a hard time selling it?...I mean 'extreme' low mileage? It's gotta be a good car if the descriptions are true?
Maybe it's just a model that people haven't turned on to yet? Kind of a half-way house between an M3 and a 318is? Problem is look at the way 318is prices have plummeted over the past 1-1.5 years. Decent stuff struggling to make much over £2K now! Whereas up until recently good ones were going for £4500+. I guess it makes £6k for that 320is seem a lot of money for a 'left-hooker' that isn't an M3 and externally (some may say)looks a little 'bland'?
But I haven't got what I'm getting yet...arrives on Saturday....only 2 more 'sleeps'....lol! I'm actually getting a little nervous...Should I be paying such 'Top Dollar' for what it is...lol.....the mystery huh? I think you'll be 'shocked and appalled' Darren! LOL
what have u bought Derin, or must we wait for the pics ? :)
A 320iS? DOnt know why I said that, just a thought 8-)
.....well the 325i is a Touring. I still believe driven well on a public road there isn't much between them. The 325i is just more discrete about what it does...you don't have to rev it to 4000 revs before you get any performance out of it. It's not what the peak torque figures are...it's the shape of the curve.
Don't get me wrong I'm not saying that the M3 isn't faster or more fun when driven 'hard'...but at the price it's a more 'sensible' choice that one can have a lot of fun in too.

(????....something arriving Saturday....lol)
I disagree with you on your comparisons. I have both and the minor difference in low end torque is not an issue in daily driving, and if you just love to drive then the M3 is a far superior car.
