Why wouldn't everyone love exactly this kind of car!

2011 BMW 3 Series 335d 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)
First diesel, 2nd Euro delivery 26MAY2010, 3rd Beemer.
Break on price from BMW and dealer reduced price by $9K to $37K.
Mine has luxury package, fold down rear seat, standard wheels. Exhilarating propulsion, fabulous handling, 30mpg city & highway @ 80 mph on trips (but pricey fuel), comfortable, no gremlins, & no complaints.
I think that folks who won't consider buying a diesel powered car have never driven one!
The 335d, to me, is an uptown diesel well-worth the $42K (including taxes, registration, delivery) to put it on the roads in Europe and California.
You'll love it.
Torque (lots of it!), superb handling, no I-system, quiet ride, fuel efficiency, superb fit and finish, easy to keep clean, smaller diameter wheels (to improve ride), adjustable front seats, and the cup holders.
European delivery alone is worth getting one of BMW's contributions to engineering excellence and joyful driving!
Pockets for stuff on back of front seats would be nice.
I wish that owner's manual package fit in glove compartment (it doesn't!).
I wish that BMW gave info on the use of biodiesel fuels for this engine.
