About the engine... I've also got the E90 330d SE. Overall, which one feels like it has more oomph? Is any difference in oomph engine alone, or the fact that the F30 has an 8-speed tranny?

Great review btw
Because the speedometer in the F30 is hardware, it cannot be changed to KM/H unfortunately.

Ooomph? Tricky question! Great engine isn't it
It's very difficult! For the absolute kick in the back I think it has to go to the 330d... for now. The 328i however is faster, but the torque deficit (520NM to 350NM) means it doesn't punch you every time you look at the gas pedal! Ooomph? Ahh, so hard to say! Ughh!
3....... erm... 28i. It's gotta be I think. Good question!
