    Should have got the 330cd, that would have been what you were expecting! Although not quicker, it certainly feels like it is from the shear amount of Porsche 911 beating torque!

    That's not a limited edition, its a 330Ci SE with an aftermarket bodykit, possibly an AC Shnitzer(sp)?

    Looks smart. Not a massive fan of those wheels, personally I'd replace them with the 18" MV's that come with the E46 Sport. Then it would look tip-top :cool:

    MPG? 20-30 really. Value? It's probably worth about £10-11k depending on mileage and age.

    Circa. 230bhp IIRC, crap torque though (compare to the 330d anyway) only [email protected]

    0-62 in 6.5 (manual), 0-100 in 17.1s

    330d (my favourite)

    231bhp, [email protected]
    0-62 in 6.7 (manual, 0-100 in 17.4s

    Dam it, both have the same bhp! Wait, someone is still going to tell me that the Petrol is quicker right!

    Sorry, was comparing it to the new 330d lump! Nothing a remap couldn't fix!!

    E46 330dcd still > 330ci in my opinion! :o

    My opinion as well, the 3.0 diesel is an absolutely brilliant engine.

    The 330d is a good engine, but a coupe shouldnt have a diesel engine, especially a coupe that looks like the above.
