I've not been able to find the sticker on the car either. However there IS a sticker in the owners manual folder. I will scan and upload it tomorrow

the 185d does shift, its one fast car, its faster in places than the 3mps, due to its extra 40nm of torque

No sticker here either. But definately a 185 as its damn near my Celtic tuned 192 Civic diesel. Another few hundred miles and I might see what they can do for this one.

I'm guessing by this, that your car has arrived at the dealership then Wingy?

What colour did you opt for in the end?

Be sure to post some pics of your new 3 when you do pick it up please, cheers!  :)

Well seeing as you have free cash to burn, i'd defenately go for the Illuminated Scuff Plates, more of a luxury though than anything, so you might not fancy these to be honest.

Other things you may fancy are the Sport Exhaust, Chrome Indicator Bezels, MPS Rear Spoiler, Alloy Pedal Set & the Silver Speaker Bezels. If i were in your shoes, i would most likely go for all six accessories if they were all thrown in for free after the trouble the dealership has caused you.
