But I think it is already cheaper or the same. I would buy it over the 535i because of the 30% more torque (stock), faster acceleration while driving (freeway overtaking) and the gas milage.

Hmmm ... am I the only one reading this thread interested in the 535d (530d for the rest of the world)? :D That engine is the event of the year for me.

Quiet? It's everything BUT. Take a look at the 11 pages about the wind & tire noise http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=781339. If you're looking for a quiet car, stay away.

Shocker!!! The interior is an F30, the overall manufacturing costs are lower and they gonna charge $5k over an F30. Less for more. Gotta love that concept (thank you A5).

True, haha, I guess we're not cool with the idea of having a decent optioned 330hp V6 for a stripped 240hp L4's money :)

If BMW disappears tomorrow, what would you drive?

I'm curious what brand(s) would you guys consider, given that BMW would be unavailable (for whatever reasons).

For me:
1. Audi
2. Merc
3. Hyundai (Genesis / Equus only)

I don't think they underrated this engine as well. While 5.8s for 240/260 it's definitely a (beautiful) lie, 7.2s sounds about right for 170/280.

328i "diesel" clatter

Although it doesn't bother me - I almost like it - cannot help noticing that at idle, the 328i has a loud and clear diesel clatter compared to an A4 which is completely muted.

Why does the Bimmer...

Doesn't bother me at all. It's just one more source of noise and vibration in the car :)

And to OP, if it feels smoother, it's because you got use to it.
