    Underpowered 300d..good lipstick works on interiors & exteriors but lacks power punch & smoothness punch

    Pros: Space,plush interiors & features Cons: 300d underpowered for such bulky vehicle..understand 350d getting launched soon with the more punchy powertrain. No Air Suspension given at this cost is beyond my comprehension..it's affecting drive capability in bad patches & off-road capabilities.

    X30i

    Bought the petrol version X30i in November. Being a petrol head, I just love the lack of engine noise in this car. The cabin is spacious , well insulated and the drive is typical BMW - driver centric , not to mention 0-100 in 6.4 seconds , its a pleasure to drive .The mileage is on the lower side , around 13 in highways and 10 odd in the city, but then when you choose a petrol car you shouldn't be thinking about mileage much. Got a good deal from the dealership which included 5 year totally free maintenance package , I also took the 5 year warranty , so hopefully I am sorted.
