If driving the average 12,000 miles a year the difference is pretty minimal.

Taking into account an average 335i driver gets 27mpg and an average 335d gets 34mpg the difference is less than 400 per year at current fuel prices.

Given diesel will continue to rise in price out of proportion to petrol that gap is only going to get closer and closer.

Buying a second hand 335i over a d and saving thousands makes common sense to the vast majority in a financial sense.
