2009 BMW 3 Series 335d 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)
This is a great car. I researched MBZ first, having driven 240Ds for 20 years. This car is powerful, handy, and responsive. Mercedes lost out with half the fuel economy and much higher prices for diesel models.
Stabilization and tight turning radius, power.
There are some gaps in the finish work that are going to collect compost, especially under the trunk lid.
