Please elaborate. But no, they don't.

If we refer to the 335d and the complicated anti-emission systems, diesel BMW are more expensive to maintain than the gassers.

Cliché.

Gassers last a longtime these days.

It is easy to get 300K out of them, as taxis routinely do.

You got it wrong.

Whether going to a 320i or a 328d is irrelevant.

The point was to keep that 335i, which gives a better representation of what a BMW should be.

I would dismiss the N20 for many reasons, but reliability isn't one of them.

I haven't even heard a single case of intake carbon build-up (like the DI N54/55). :dunno:

Safety-wise probably no longer because of ESP/DSC, but with one of the old Quattro I owned you never knew on an ultra-icy highway if the front or rear would go first. FWD was safer.

A very bold YES.

AWD is even worse than FWD. Less predictable.

BMW weren't meant to be AWD (or a minivan).

At least if it was universal. I learned to my disbelief that diesel for trucks won't fit in and that the nozzle is different!
