I have an e92 320d at the moment & whilst performance is brisk, I sometimes wish there was more. The fuel econony of the 30d looks impressive on paper but I'm just a bit concerned about mpg with real world driving. The claimed mpg for my 20d is supposed to be around 68mpg on a run however I can only manage 55/56.

If I thought I could get 50+ in the 30d then it would be an easy decision. There's also the temptation of having more performance as opposed to choosing another 3 with the same engine as what I currently have. I just don't want to opt for one & then find out I can only manage early 40's.

Decisions decisions
I think 44MPG would be a good average for this new 330D engine. With 50MPG on long light footed runs.
Live for now, life is too short.
