Thanks for separating by D and I

Edit:
I am going to say this carefully...it is only an observation....

I am surprised to read that many of the reviewers who drove both cars tended to prefer the d, even with its slower acceleration times!

I do think that gassers and diesels are both great, and both have different merits, and appeal to different buyers. I do hope they eventually bring back some sibling of the 335d though, I wan't a worthy replacement when the time comes!

Garage List
Road & Track review link just posted on Facebook:

"2012 BMW 328i - First Drive
The new 3 Series upholds its reputation as the benchmark sport sedan."

Interestingly, this reviewer said that he drove a car equipped with the M Sport package, but the accompanying photos don't support that (must be stock photos): "For driving enthusiasts, the M Sport package, such as on the car I drove, features aggressive exterior and interior trim. "

I wonder when the full USA tests will come out, i.e. Car&Driver, Insideline, Motortrend, Road&Track. Etc etc. I want to see the USA model tested for performance numbers and what the real weight of the car will be when it is weighted on a scale.

You'll start to see some of them next week when the first round of US F30 press drives kicks off.
