I really like my 335d....more than I ever thought I would. The fuel economy is just an added benefit.
Herein lies the problem! BMW won't bring the D's if everyone who want's one buys an i when they get tired of waiting! Vote with your wallet and buy one of the dark side diesels - like, uh, a MB 350 Bluetec! You can bet if Bluetec sales spike, we'll see a 535d!

Very true although a MB 350 is so vastly different in driving experience that it might make one go a little "mad" if having expectations of a 35d

With diesel at a $0.70 premium over regular, I think it will be a hard sell to convince many to even consider a diesel.

What % more was it when you bought your diesel car?

As I recall Diesel was running about par with Premium, which was about $0.10 above Regular.

It's all relative, the car I used to drive got 18mpg on regular, this one gets a steady 29.5mpg, so about 55% better on fuel that was perhaps 5% more. Now it is about 20% more, still in the winning column.

Plus I can kick the sh$t out of most vehicles on the road.

How long did you monitor diesel pricing compared to gasoline before making a decision to get a diesel car?

no pen or usb so far. Car will be 2 years old in March 2012. Only thing we got was a booklet with 335d drawing and some BMW marketing stuff.

Just so you're aware that the price of the pen is incorporated into the price you paid for the car, and money you spend at the dealer.

Says Floyd the cynic.

My vehicle was delivered in Munich last July. It was re-delivered @ Performance Center last September. I never receive that USB. I'll think that portrait is a Christmas gift had it not been this thread.

You got no letter with the portrait explaining the reason for the gift?

Aaron,

Of course it did. It's a complimentary anniversary gift from BMW. That is my weak attempt at humor since December is neither an anniversary from ED or PCD, rather it is Christmas.
