    OK so after much pondering and then negotiation I am getting the following deal:

    Brand New BMW 3 Series Coupe 2.0L M Sport Diesel w/ Automatic Transmission
    with Leather, Metallic Paint, Bluetooth Prep+Telematics, BMW iDrive/Sat Nav
    for £30,000

    Is that a good deal?

    Why buy a brand new car? What's the point? They're automatically worth a ridiculous amount less the moment they're driven off the forecourt.

    If it's what you really want, go for it - your money, your car. I wouldn't personally though.

    If you could spend the same money on another used BMW, what car would you buy?

    Why BMW?

    Get a used Audi RS4, much better car.

      If the insurance costs more than that car, then no.

      If you've got more sense than money, get a similar spec car that's pre-owned but nearly new.

      There's nothing remotely "sporting" about a diesel.

      For what it's worth, assuming the thread isn't the usual troll b/s - check your finance deal. You can normally get a better rate than they offer you first time around. Go for a PCP on a new car. No point in paying over the odds for something that'll be worth about a fiver next year.

      I got the SE rather than the M Sport - the diesel has 60 mpg, thats why i wanted it; its also faster than the 320i.
