Can remove lor the limit. And if u do full throttle, I think cars like 330i need to speed up to 230kmh to catch up ur 180kmh speed. Once u full throttle. Quite far left behind car.

Frankly speaking, so far in my driving experience, never exceeded 160 km/h thus the limit of 180 km/h is not an issue for me.

i guess 330i is the only choice now lol unless i go for passat elegance.

Huge price difference between the Passat and the 330i... is the lack of ADAS on the Passat a deal breaker for u guys? Interior quality is on par and some reviews say even better than the 320i...

Cuz im just going for sedan.

Accord - Don't like it
Camry - Don't like it
s60 - Speed limit
es250 - Acceleration a little too slow for me
w205 c300 - Like it quite well, but i am concerned about the fact it is an outgoing model
w206 c300 - RM350k for a c300 is too overpriced and it is over my budget already
g20 330i - Like it quite well, but the long waiting period is a turn-off
Passat - I personally like passat HL more than passat elegance. The interior quality seems to have deteriorated in elegance. The lack of ADAS is also kinda disappointing.
New 508 - My 208 puretech has been giving me some minor issues recently. Don't wanna take the risk again.

There's a 330 G20 pre reg available in ACE exhibition in Setia, can't recall the price. You may call WheelCorp to find out.

The arteon looks sleek and refreshing though

What is the meaning of pre-reg? And doesn’t the 330i have a much harsher ride than the 330e and 320i?

One thing I would like to ask also: Hafriz of Paultan reviewed the 320i and said the speakers sound trashy... to what extent this is true?

Of course the comparison of sound system in 320 is lousy as opposed to his own ride which comes with B&O. But his B&O would be lousy if compared to incoming Lexus IS300 1800w Mark Levinson.. It'll never end if compare this way

Pre reg means the car was registered under the company for various reasons ie test car, mgmnt car etc. Usually very low mileage and still with complete warranty

SAs say 2-3 months, and it is not guaranteed. Some people in the g20 fb group have been waiting for more than 4 months already.

I've checked out both the Passat and G20 before. The interior of the Passat seems pretty plasticky and bland if you ask me. The G20 interior, while not as luxurious as it should be for a car carrying the BMW brand, still has a certain charm to it

Oh well, to each his own I guess

Pre-reg means second hand lah.


But luxury marques sometimes will "buy" thier leftover unsold stock to meet thier quota. Usually at tail end of a model run or pending new facelift.

Usually they will use as demo, loaner cars or management cars. Some cars may be event sponsor cars.



Usually low mileage and have full warranty.

You got it wrong ...Pre-owned means second hand but pre-reg is NEW ( 0 miliege) and just registered under a company then sell to you .

Thanks for all your useful feedback guys! There's one more thing I'm kinda confused about: Apple CarPlay

Is there a trial period now? Or it's just disabled until u pay the one-off payment?

Is the payment only to enable "wireless" car play, or the whole Apple CarPlay system? Cos I read some articles saying payment is needed to enalble wireless Apple CarPlay (means wired Apple CarPlay is free?)
*
Ill answer you, you get a 3 months free trial period . After that , you need to pay one off RM1288, I think , to continue to use it .

However, Android is FREE

Also , under the BMWconnectedDrive, a lot of the things need subscribtion . rclxub.gif

Pre reg…what you say is true but usually they will run it for some km before passing to you. They have to take that as proof to claim from BMW as part of their advertisement costs or sonethings

It's the 7% fleet discount ....They used a shell company for that purpose . if you obeserve carefully, the discount you get from pre-reg is about 7%.
