2010 BMW 3 Series 335d 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)
Quiet, fast and stays on the road like glue, and effortlessly goes where you aim it. This car will destroy any negative ideas one might have of a diesel powered auto. Instant response and no turbo lag thanks to two computer controlled turbos - a small one at low RPM and a larger one at higher RPM. Ride is firm but not hard, and suspension is comfortably competent.
Awesome diesel. Zero to 60 in six seconds, phenomenal acceleration from 30 to 60 and beyond. Just what you want for safe passing capability.
Has run flat tires which have a poor (140) tread life rating. At $400.00 each, this can get expensive, very quickly.
