In SoCal with premium about $4.29 a gal vs diesel at $2.99 a gal and with 45 mpg vs my miserable 18 mpg it seems like a no brainer. I just don't want to feel underpowered. All my driving is highway. But I've read about the N47 timing chain issue and I am having second thought. Anyone want to chime in?
Are you looking for people to talk you into it? Why not look at the 535d, 255hp and 413lbs of torque and much better MPG then 18
