328i or 328d?

hi Guys,

I am in market for either a new or CPO 328i or 328d. The reason I am even considering diesel is because of my commute. I am going to be driving 90Miles a day (45mi one way) in California to my work.

I test drove both last weekend and honestly couldn't tell the difference between them. This is the first BMW I will own. The 50MPG of 328d is tempting but here in US, the diesels are not that popular. So I am a bit hesitant.

If I bought a 328d, looks like I will have to refill after 1.5 weeks whereas if I got a 328i, I will have to refill every week. Cost of gas is not that big of a concern but I'd like to not fill gas more than once a week.'re my questions :

1. Other 328i and 328d owners, what kind of mileage do you get on highway? (newer model)
2. What do you guys think of the analysis of diesel vs gasoline above? Any recommendations?

Thanks a lot in advance!
