Bought a E46 330 Cd yesterday, so I guess I won't be around here much anymore I need to find a BMW forum thats as good as ASN asap!
With regards to the car, it's so much nicer to give a booting than the Audi the handling is beautiful and the power delivery is ridiculous, third gear literally makes you clench.
Although you quickly come to miss the audi driving position, the bose sound system amongst a few other niggly little bits. Most noticeably the steering on the BM is much much heavier and you really notice this around town. Generally for a day to day car to live with the Audi was much better.
But the BM isn't even as bad on fuel as i thought it would be! Been hooooning around for the past day with a bit of motorway and i've averaged 41mpg.
But it just doesn't seem to feel right, so I may be back in an Audi quicker than you think
Will post some pictures tomorrow once the car gets a good going over.
