Is the 320i already use adaptive suspension? Never really pay attention on it. I know the 330i misses the adaptive suspension, maybe wait later until it gets that.

nope. Only the 330e gets adaptive suspension for Malaysian market.

320i is just on normal one. Neither M sport suspension nor M adaptive suspension.

Owned bimmer for 7 years. Nothing much to complain. There are some models which require more attention and there are some that are simply more sensitive than others.

Overall, it’s a great experience. You want a secure piece of mind, go for T or H. However, the ride won’t be satisfying as continentals.

Whats a T and H ?

I was also eyeing 320I but sadly no white color so I went for 330e. BM is my dream car too since young and now am a proud owner.

320I there's a few thing need to take note (those concern me anyway)
1) no adaptive suspension but it is comfort and no problem if you need more aggressive drive, corner at highspeed is stable
2) back seat is excellent at least the seat covers until your ankle area so your leg is not hanging, good for a family car.
3) 8.8 inch infotainment screen, analog cockpit (which i prefer, the digital one really need times to get used to)
4) the exhaust POPS hehe, nice pop sound if that's your thing.

thats all come into my mind atm. go achieve your dream.

bro dont la cucuk me , haha..

but yea lotsa year end sales for BMW , last call for Tax Rebates .

im still in a limbo , current a H driver , served me well for the last 10 years , hasnt failed me at all , just regular service at the SC and now the normal mechanics.

Thinking of making the switch to the conti league .. but yea options are plenty , considering the X1 , CHR , CX30 , but dont really know or come up with a sound judgement yet ..

pros:

1) Quiet (My wife said the quietness + music + the seat makes her feel like want to have a good sleep)

2) Electric - My workplace is not far from home, around 30 km round trip, battery can last around 50-60 km. Own the car for 1 month but haven't refill petrol yet. Estimate electric bill for charging the car, since it is a 12 kWh battery size, using TNB highest tariff 57.10sen/kWh, if charge from empty 0% to 100% everyday around RM7 per day RM210 per month? (not sure yet haven't receive my new TNB bill)

3) bigger 10.25 inches screen than 320i (8.8 inches). Android/Apple carplay using google map on that screen is a blast.

4) New digital instrument cluster... need time to get used to it, looks good but I still prefer analog.

5) Power - electric acceleration is powerful. (but i didn't push the car too far la.. just uncle normal drive watch scenery only)

6) Adaptive suspension, so you can go hard or comfort.

7) Comes with lane departure, blind spot monitoring, emergency braking, auto parking etc etc.. still lack if compare to top spec Japanese car, but good to have additional protection anyway. (Malaysian too cheap if later BMW Malaysia includes everything and price goes up people complains lagi)

8) cosmetic - internal led strip.. car handle led.. welcome light carpet... blue m-sport brake caliper.. (not important la just the looks)

9) back seat is comfort, support full length of your thigh.

10) wireless carplay/AA and wireless charger.

cons:

1) Tyre pressure monitor no numbers reading.. so only when puncture then it will notify you.. if got numbers reading then at least can see the pressure go down bit by bit (if not serious) so can go repair the tyre earlier.

2) no 360 cam yet in 2020, no adaptive cruise control in 2020. But yeah, we will complain price too steep if includes those. Top up RM20k can buy volvo with those features.

3) when you open drivers door, the car will shut down automatically, super inconvenient when you just want to grab something and your family still in the car. There is workaround for this which is to step on brake and accelerator to force the engine to run then only open the door but you won't like it.

4) exhaust doesn't sound nice like 320i or 330i pop pop pop. But hey it is an environmental friendly e-car right?

5) no central locking at passenger side or center of the car, wife's hand have to reach all the way to drivers door to lock all doors.

Exhaust sound can be adjusted via Idrive .....

If got budget, tyre pressure monitor with readings, 360 cam & adaptive cruise control can be retrofitted onto your car.

Can find Eurotuner on FB. I've done some aesthetics retrofitting there.

Forget about X1 or CHR. These 2 model not worth.

If you die die like BMW SUV better upgrade to X3 or get pre-own which is also around 200k for 2~3 years car.
X3 is one of the best handling & value SUV in BMW line. Just google about X3 you will know why.

CX30 is a bit mix bag for me. The price is a bit high to justify why to not choose CX-5 which is better in everything at similar price point..

https://www.facebook.com/BMW.Malaysia/posts/4174828632547289

someone shared it today..
kudos for BMW Malaysia to give back to people during this difficult time..
already LIKED their page to find out more on how to win haha..

let me share a statement from their ads..very deep and touching for me..

'A year filled with challenges, unpredictable, overwhelming..yet there will always be something to look forward to'..

so it may be a bad year but always remember that you are still healthy and you can make it a better next year..
