I got a 328ix on Friday and have driven it about 300 miles. I came from a 2011 335d, which had copious power and great mpg. I was concerned that the F30 would be less of a car and it is in every...

Thanks for the update. Gives me a rethink on BMW Diesels, but the 328d is still under powered. Has anyone driven the 535d?

I went in to a local dealer for their challenge event today and test drove the 428xi, 435xi, and the 328d. I have a 2011 335d and none of these cars matched the 335d for torque and power. The 435xi...

Has anyone tried this in a BMW Diesel?

420d convertible

Hertz gave me a 420di for the weekend here in Denmark. It is white, with the M-sport package. Nice red stitches on the black leather and very nice red accents on the dash. It looks very elegant. ...

Tesla

Good to hear about the 328d. I test drove a Tesla a few weeks ago and found that to be a very exciting alternative to diesel. The model S is a big car, much larger than the 3 series. Its all...

335d

Best time to buy a BWM diesel is in the winter. Diesels are not America's favorite BMW and the 335d is rear wheel drive and for some reason people in the NE think they don't do well in snow. I...

1. I have a 32GB Kingston USB 2.0 Flash drive formatted as FAT32

2. I used UNETbootin in Linux to burn the first...

It was an amazing 56F in New York today and that sound was gone when I started it today. I guess its the electric heater and will ask the dealer if the sound is normal.

Loved driving with the sun...

I think we'll see hybrid like batteries in the F30 335d that will come out in 2013. The 335d gets the worst gas mileage when the engine is idling at a stop light, and the energy spent braking the...

That sounds right. Have had the seat and wheel heaters on when I get that noise. Am surprised it makes a noise though. Will still ask the dealer about it.

Otherwise, am completely loving this...

Btw, is it true that the only way to upgrade the HD based NAV is via the dealer? Is it possible to do the upgrade via the USB in the glove box with an ISO on it?

Thanks. I updated my profile!

I'm used to the knocking sound. That's normal for a diesel in cold weather. The sound I get is when I come off the gas and the car is coasting. It almost feels...

I think BMW will ship the 335d in the F30 later as they often stagger engines after initial launches. Its a very popular engine in Europe, where the big 335i petrol engine uses too much gas, and I...

Agreed. Saddle Brown is much nicer than Beige. Sadly it is not at all easy to find in the TriState area. Will keep looking.
