    Hello! Will be collecting the above car on Tuesday and I cant bloody wait!! Been driving a 2002 Subaru Impreza GX Wagon(the non turbo one!) for nearly two years and feel like its time to get something more comfortable and a little more sensible. Never owned a BMW before so really looking forward to getting used to RWD and all the other little extras (cruise control etc).

    My girlfriend is a little worried about how much we will be spending on petrol, anyone have a 320i and can help me reassure her we wont be filling up every other day!!

    Look forward to questioning everyone!

    Heres the link to the piston heads ad!

    No probs mate, the car looks very nice indeed, low mileage, in cracking condition and with some nice little extras to boot

    Look like you got yourself a good one there.

    I bought my first BM last month, Im very impressed indeed.
    Dont worry about the missus, mines was the same regarding the costs. She is used to driving a diesel Mazda 6, so hardly ever needs to fill up. However she has never stopped driving the BM since we got it, even though she has had to visit the petrol station a little more often. When your missus starts to get people looking at her and her car she will be the same as my missus.

    Bet you cant wait till next week.
