    Hey all - hows it going? Just joined 2 mins ago,

    i sat in a 330d today and fell in love with it but haven't even test driven it yet. That;s happening tomorrow.

    i am moving up from from a focus 07 2L TDCi ghia but i think the 05 330d will blow it out the water!!

    What area or part of the forum should i go to for advice on:

    + buying the car and what to look out for
    + what to ask the dealer guy
    + and how best to haggle him down.

    Cheers! Any advice wlcm! Red!

    Welcome to the forum Redadair, Post it in the General BMW discussions forum(here http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/f74/) as you haven't yet bought one and you have several questions.
