I'm sure you can find this information by speaking to a dealership. There are no diesel or four cylinder 1 series cars in the US, so most of us just don't know, but I'm pretty certain that the diesel engine will out perform a similar sized petroleum engine in both torque output and fuel efficiency.

Most of the NA folks think a 118 is pathetically weak, but for sheer driving fun it's great. Can't get them anymore in the US, but there are plenty in Europe. Hope somebody on your side of the pond will chime in.

They were never available in the US, BMW is releasing it's first four cylinder engine in quite some time in the US later this year when the Z4 sDrive28i debuts.
