Cool Paris 2012: BMW 330d Touring M Sport (F31)

Paris 2012: BMW 330d Touring M Sport (F31)

COMMENTS

We're coming to you live from the 2012 Paris motor show and have had a chance to gawk at the beautiful 3 Series Touring (F31) in M Sport trim and in Estoril Blue II, which has become the quintessential color for the F30 and F31 M sport package.

The 330d touring produces 258PS and 560Nm torque, with fuel economy of 55.4mpg.

F31 deliveries have just begun in Europe (see our very first delivery) and they will hit the North American market in the Spring of 2013.

Full F31 technical info and official thread @ http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=690502

2013 330d Touring M Sport

can't wait for the diesels to make their way to the US. I'm a huge fan of the E90 335d and to have the new diesel engine in other models here in the US will be great!

Agreed, hopefully BMW hurries up with a 1er sedan. I have no hope that the US will ever see a 1er hatch, sadly. I'd really like a manual BMW sedan or wagon, but the F30/F31 are too big for me.

The more I drive my F30, the smaller it feels around me. It's no MINI, but it's not huge either. My wife's KIA Optima feels bigger than my 3.

I can't wait to see an F31 in person as that is what I really wanted....I just couldn't wait....

Oh, that engine, hate the Norwegian tax that's makes powerful engine so much more expensive.

the sedan form looks way better; even if this is probably one of the best looking wagons on the market at the moment

What engines have been announced for the US F31 market? I think both of the F30 and F31 should have:

320d - 180hp, 280lb/ft
328i - 240hp, 260lb/ft
330d - 260hp, 410lb/ft
335i - 300hp, 300lb/ft

That's what's been announced, I'd frankly be shocked to see any other engine in the US F31 aside from maybe the 325d (labeled as 320d above) in a few years. The all automatic thing will keep me from considering any F31 though.

Chance are we won't get the 330d in the F30 as the US market is supposed to prefer the AH3.
