I've lived with a F30 330e now for 3 years as a company car. As a company car it makes sense, but I don't think the benefits are good enough for private ownership.

You need to make some sacrifices - boot space, tiny fuel tank, bad MPG when driving motorway, you can feel the battery weight in corners, the instant torque can make the car wheel spin at the lightest throttle at junctions in the wet or when roads are greasy.

I did over 50k miles in mine on long journeys and only got around 34mpg (my S3 8V does 40mpg on the same journeys at same pace).

If the configurator is anything to go by, you can't get the car without run flats and it has no M Sport Diff (haven't had that confirmed but looks that way)

I have ordered a G20 330i and will be happy to pay the extra 180 ish a month on company car tax to enjoy driving again.

If it's private purchase, do the 330i or 330d IMO.

I'm going to have a redundant charging point outside my house now, but hey!
