Wow, the windshield gap is unbelievable. If you look carefully, there is also a non-uniform gap on the passenger side for the windshield edge running from the roof to the hood.

Yes, not surprising at all, considering the typical BMW clientele in the US. For most people, the added expense of the diesel isn't justifiable economically.

That's exactly it. The diesel has to shift up, which means less torque at the wheels.

Just a note though. Hp always peaks at a higher RPM than torque. You can prove this using basic calculus. I...

It is important to emphasize that. The 328d is equipped like a 328i, not a 320i that has many features taken out, such as power seats.

I wouldn't be surprised if it were closer to 1% once you exclude the 1 and the Z's. You have a far better chance of finding a manual VW CC than an F30 sedan.

That remains to be seen, but the 328i is a much faster car, and I could save a lot more by going for the 320i instead, which is the more comparable car in terms of power.
