Nice to know that in a pinch, such as when unexpected financial things happen, the 335d can be driven economically so that I can to continue with my job and not have to borrow from coworkers (very embarassing).

Not saying it isnt my fault for not keeping a money reserve of my own.
That's more what I was talking about. If my finances were cut anywhere near that close I wouldn't be driving a late model BMW whether it ran on gas, diesel or happy thoughts but to each their own.
