With regards to the brakes, yes I would imagine they are similar to the E90 330d - being similar power output. Out of interest they upgraded the E90 330d when the LCI came out to be the same brakes as the 335i/335d. Would be interesting if the 328i had the same size brakes.
Yeah it would, I'm not sure what the figures for the brakes are on either car.
I quite liked the MPG needle in my 330d because it spent most of its time in the high figures. This meant I didn't feel as guilty when I put my foot down!
The 330d was certainly more encouraging I think to go... Mind you, MT to AT might have a play in that.
