We are even getting the smaller output 2.0i engine as a 520i in the F10 5-series. Will make a change to all the 520d 5-series.

How about a 316i? Just a humble 1.6 litre with 136hp, in the F30. That is on our specification list over here.

Well...the 328i outsells the 335i by a HUGE factor here, so it's not entirely the case...but it is odd.

Let's see how the 320i gamble by BMW shakes out...I suspect it'll be very profitable, especially when competing with the likes of the CLA by MBUSA.
