Once you have one it's hard to go back to gas. You get used to 550+ miles per tank averaging 33-35 mpg.

560190

One is more brown and the other one is more green from what I remember. Zoom out a little and make the change. I think it might be a little more obvious.

535d v 528i

The 535d feels faster and gets you considerably better gas mileage. In my area, diesel is also as cheap, or cheaper, than regular gas.

The start/stop on the diesel sucks. The car just shudders,...
