My choice would be a 335i, that's why I bought one! I'd never pick a diesel over a petrol if my heart were to rule an cost/economy didn't matter. Surely 90% of people prefer a petrol over a diesel if its just a choice of the 2 with all other factors equal. Although I do appreciate how far diesels have come they still don't have the feel of a petrol.
I'm 27 btw, petrol petrol petrol!
