The 335d xDrive..

Quote:
BMW's N57 diesel engine followed on from the M57 which won the International Engine of the Year award no fewer than seven times (between 1999 and 2009), so it's pretty good unit a little louder than some of its rivals, but powerful and very efficient.

You'll find the fastest version (excluding the triple turbo version in the M550d) in the 3 Series, but up until now, deploying 309bhp and 630Nm (460lb-ft) of torque through just two wheels has proven something of a challenge.

Not any more. For 2014, BMW has fitted its xDrive all-wheel-drive system to the 335d, combined with a modified version of the its 8-speed Sport auto transmission with Launch Control.

Launch Control was previously only available on BMW's M models, but can now be found on versions of the 1 Series, 3 Series and 6 Series fitted with BMW's 8-speed sport auto box.

The 335d xDrive Saloon joins the range from 40,650, which pitches it well above Audi's 242bhp A4 3.0 TDI quattro (37,490) and closer in performance to the 328bhp S4 (39,020). While the S4 may have the edge in outright power (+19bhp), the 630Nm 335d makes Audi's 440Nm look distinctly inadequate, so you pays your money and you takes your chance nice choice to have though.

Both 335d xDrive and BMW's new 550i models are available to order now.
...in the UK of course..

I would be on that like a fat kid eating a twinky!

Alas, we have to be happy with the 530d (535d).

I'd buy that car in a second.

I finally became financially "able" to buy BMW's as soon as the 335d was on the way out.

Would love to see a new one come to the states.

If they don't fix the steering I am not buying a new BMW. I am leaning towards getting an extended warranty and keep my E90 until F30 version 2.0 comes out with steering/handling fixed. 335i M sport with dynamic handling pkg lost to a Lexus in C&D shoot out. I think C&D was generous with 2nd place to in front of the Caddy ATS. I don't recall 3er BMW losing fun to drive category.
