When you can't find a "con" other than it doesn't have "the greatest soundtrack" (the E90 328i didn't sound amazing neither did the 335i, this isn't a 335i), I'll take it as a win. Well done BMW. Though, the front is starting too look very pointy.

Thanks for posting; 0-62mph in 5.9 is impressive.

If it comes to the states, the 320D will be the wife's new car. If not, the 328i M-Sport will work.

The only thing I miss about this car are 2 more pots under the bonnet in a NA engine...

The rest is not always exactly what I wanted but I can put up with it somehow.

320d would about 52 mpg US, with x-drive prob 49. Put it together for a package starting at 40K- I think they may have a market.

If its between a 4-cyl turbo or 4-cyl diesel; I'd rather get the six...but that being said, I'd rather have the diesel. If its all about fuel savings, and you have to be buy a %$*^ing 4-cyl engine, why wouldn't you buy a diesel, which will give you 15 more mpg- with about the same performance? You need premium fuel anyway for the turbo. Diesel is on par with premium around here. The only issue is cost- can BMW make it in the range of the 4-cyl or will it be as expensive as the 6 cyl. In that case, I'll take the 6.

I skimmed through it, but couldn't find "turbo lag" words, so, it's so far so good huh.

can't wait for the aftermarket engine enhancements. This could be a very sweet deal. A little turbo boost, etc and the fun really begins
