I'm rather confused with the statement.. If you didn't like the sound of the diesel engine then why would you get a diesel? 320i instead?

Its really 6k more for 45kw and 60HP. Dyno tests show 328 at 255 HP got that figure from one of the threads.

320D
Maximum Power (kW / hp / rpm)
135 / 184 / 4,000

328
Maximum Power (kW / hp / rpm)
180 / 245 / 5,000 - 6,500
