I'm very tall (6'3", 190cm), and with the way I sit in these cars I can't even angle or position the HUD display in a way that's actually useful to me. When I can just barely see it, it's still so...

Mag times. That's all you've got!

They said the same thing about my 2001 Accord V6, which was also a dog. Flat out redlining every gear how they test in mags is NOT how you drive on the street.

If 5-60 was SUUUUUUCH a reliable "holy grail" indicator of performance then why doesn't the X5d with unquestionably superior performance do much better than the Explorer in 5-60? Even...

5-60 you're likely dealing with throttle tip-in lag, and yes a wee bit of turbo lag. Does that mean the BMW is slower? NOPE!

Once upon a time I owned a 2001 Accord V6 with 200hp. It had the best "mag times" out there and bested the 190hp Maxima and 193hp Camry V6. I test drove the car before buying and honestly wasn't all...

Best to just put him on your ignore list. And don't quote him either, because then those of us that have him on ignore actually have to see the drivel he posts. :rolleyes:

I don't think I have to change anything. I think BMW is fully aware that they've created a bunch of Inline-6 sound and feel snobs, and that this is why they're working so hard on engine sound...

Yep, that's the biggest problem I have with the 328i, and the 328d for that matter too. I'm okay with a very good 4-cylinder at $40k MSRP, but by the time I'm in the mid to upper-$40k range I feel...

The final drive is a lot longer in the diesels to account for the lower RPM range, so it's not really that. 10/10ths performance tests like 0-60 and 1/4 mile are where diesels are at their weakest...

The 320i I'd want is about $39-40k MSRP
The 328i I'd want is about $46-47k MSRP, and still has a buzzy 4-cylinder engine.
The 335i I'd want is about $49-50k MSRP.

All of these are equipped about...

I'd want to check most of the option boxes on the 320i and it comes out to $40k MSRP, which would be in the mid-30's actual price. The funny thing is that when pricing out a 328i which starts at...

Honestly, if BMW had marketed the 328d as a TRUE "320d" with the same standard equipment and options as the 320i today, I think they'd sell a whole lot more of them. It's easy for me to consider a...

The oldest N54's are nearly 8 years old, vs barely 3 years old for the N20 so really tough to say at this point. The N20 does benefit from BMW's many lessons learned from the N54 so hopefully it will...
