Mein Auto: 2014 328d
Thumbs up 328D master piece

Bought my 328D in July. Only have 3000 miles on him. I live in Colorado by the mountains so I can really ring out the car in the Rockies. All I can say is WOW. The Germans have mastered the diesel and integrated it into a master piece of a performance luxury car. I've had diesels in the past but this diesel is from another world. I average 38 mpg city, 46 mpg hi way and 42 mpg fun, heart pounding mountain driving. You can slightly here that it is a diesel when idling and I love the sound. Every time my wife rides with me she's always saying OH GOD! OH GOD! while holding tight to the upper hand hold. When hi way driving we put on calm tunes and relax in peace and comfort.
This is the perfect car and no one else (manufacturer) can match it. The tail pipe runs clean and I can't smell the exhaust at all. Congratulations BMW you hit it right on the nose with the 328D.

Mein Auto: '13 Diesel X5 & MBZ R350


Europeans drive more diesel than gas cars so that means something.

Once a diesel, always a diesel - my 2nd diesel BMW - 4th BMW ....

Next BMW - diesel X4 or X7 ???

You cracked me up with that one because I can envision my wife doing the exact same thing.

Great descriptive assessment, Thanks.

My girl friend calls that handle above her head the OS handle. That could be owe sh$t or owe scared and either would be true. I took us over Independence Pass in my 335D a couple years ago and the straight down views scared her more.
