My CA has been saying the same thing for the last three years. Knowing that I was in the market for an SUV to go along with my 335d, he phoned me recently to see if I was interested in a gas X3. I...

I think you 328d folks should be okay for the most part. Newer CJ-grade low-ash oils should also help. The only sure-fire solution to eliminating any carbon build-up would be to disable EGR...

Colo328dGirl, I'd echo what BMWTurboDzl notes. I have an '09 335d with over 90,000mi and no major issues. Almost all my miles are highway, when the engine is loaded up, so the soot build up isn't an...

North of the 49th, one gets the backdoor treatment by the tax man. My 2009 335d Sport with pretty much everything less navi was close to $60K list, and I got it for $51k. Probably about 20-25% more...

Drove the X3, Q5 TDI and GLK Bluetec. Would have stayed with BMW if they had a 23d X3, but they didn't. GLK was a nicer ride than the Q5, IMO, so went with that. Very happy with the little diesel...

Honestly, use the a/c. The (ever so) slight improvement in mileage that turning a/c off would yield would be wiped out with a single, over-zealous move away from a green light.

Concur. The rest of the rig is great, but the MB COMAND on my wife's GLK BlueTec makes me want to punch kittens.

I'm glad I dot my D without navi.

140,000km (85,000mi) on my '09. Only issue was a defective DEF injector, replaced around 40,000km. Probably amount 31-32 mpg avg with a 1/3 city-2/3 hwy split.

FM, nice on the GL. We just got a GLK for my wife...250BT. Great little SUV, she loves it already. Less than 100mi and it's getting 35-40 (US) on the highway, even better than my D when I'm trying...

Sorry to hear, FM. :(

Like Happy said, you let your guard down for just a second...hopefully the repair comes out well and the hit to your rates isn't too great.

I'm keeping my eyes on to the 535d M-sport, as a potential successor to my D.

Since BMW was taking its own sweet time doing a 23d X3, I recently ordered a GLK250BT. Flyingman, I hear you on the...

Ted, I test drove a 328d and it's not a bad set-up. Acceleration is brisk, decent enough, but not the freight train-like pull of the 335d. Nothing wrong with the engine at all...not buzzy as some...

They're missing the boat not providing an X3d...I may end up looking at a GLK or Q5 for a mid-size SUV. BMW is missing the boat on the smaller SUV front.

Canada has always had a notably higher take-rate for diesels than America. I am trying to find the reference, but I recall it was 50-60% higher than in the U.S.

I have 2 years and about 28K mi on a set of PSS that still have plenty or tread left. The PSS is a great tire and with the real-life wear, is actually very good bang for your buck.
