    Please BMW.. when can we get some 4 cylinder diesel 1 or 3 series for us commuters?

    • gtobynj

      diesel guy is spot on! 320d touring as the family car and 123d as my toy car… bring ‘em BMW and I’ll run, not walk back to my dealer and place my order, but beware, if Audi brings the A4 Avant first…

        Exactly! I’m a huge BMW fan driving vw TDIs for too long now. I’d go for the 335d but the 50K starting price is a bit much for me (along with no manual trans option). Please, bring something before Audi starts placing tdi in all of their models.

    Does anyone have experience of fitting a front strut brace to a 335D .It is an optional accessory and I was wondering if it improved turn-in,roll or stiffness to the coupe .

    Anyone fitted one with notable results?
