The 335d with its (much older) 3.0L M57 gives 25 more hp and 165 more ft-lbs (with much more punch where you need it most in daily driving), than the N20. With the 6hp28 transmission the 335d is every bit as efficient, as the 328i with its 2.0L N20 and 8speed transmission, and also faster. To me that says a hell of a lot about the 335d. (Update the 335d with BMWs current Diesel engines and an 8speed in F31 and I would purchase one today.)
