Seems with the 330d reviews they write as if its "just another 3 series" but with a more powerful engine.
I think it would be safe to say the 3 series is one of the finest cars in the world in many aspects and the 330d engine has to be just about the best diesel engine in the world at present for performance and economy. And then they write these mediocre reviews? Anyone reading these kind of reviews wouldn't be exactly compelled to go out and buy one. Yes I don't doubt it is not perfect - no car is - but you would expect a more engaging and enthusiastic review of a virtually £40K car that is allegedly "best in class".
I accept these reviewers may be not be a fan of BMW of course, so you would not get such a great review if this was the case.
