A lot depends on your driving style and habits. Diesels offer a TON of torque at low RPMs, which is good for most cut-and-thrust around town traffic, but would be less involving out on backroads, where BMW`s high-winding petrol engines really come to life.

330d, best of both worlds !
If they were a 330d here in North America, I would be all over it !

I prefer 330D instead of 330I because I used to have 530i and 530d, simply 530d much more faster and give more driving pleasure with much more torque.
