    Motor Trend Blog on the 335d

    MT likes the 335d...why wouldn't they?

    For the past several years, my attitude towards diesels has been, “If you want to haul 10,000 pounds of horse manure, awesome. Otherwise, get a gasoline-powered car if you enjoy driving.” Why did I feel this way? Well, first of all, diesel-milled heavy duty trucks are really fantastic. Especially in regards to their truckiness. In fact, burning oil makes them feel more truck-like than a higher-reving gas-powered motor does. Plus, the modern ones can haul 10,000 pounds of manure with ease.

    I just had my own revelatory diesel moment about two hours ago. It went something like this. I climbed into our long term 2009 BMW 335d for the first time. I noticed the average mileage was an indicated 29.0 mpg. I then drove 120 miles down to San Diego. My speed was somewhere between 80 and 85 mph. When I handed the fob to the valet, the 335d’s average mpg had risen to 29.4. I’m simply awed.

    335d, much respect.

    Deserves far more acknowledgement.
