i have a 335d as well (my second one). ilike driving the e93 as its a covertible and sounds good with the exhaust. however i love the D to bits, i went for a D rather than a 335i as i prefer the way a diesel performs to a petrol, not really one for loads of revs. as for economy the D averages about 40mpg and the 330i 30mpg. ive tried the premium diesel and can honestly say havent noticed the slightest bit of difference and think its all hype! i spoke to a retired engineer the other day and he reckons they have only scratched the surface of diesel engine technology so watch this space.
