I think this would be more ideal for the 3-series, would be cheaper to buy up front, and would show better fuel economy than the 335d. i'd imagine this 245hp version of the engine will be in the new 330d following the face lift.

ideally however, I wish that the 323d would make it here to North America. 2.0 liter, 4-cylinder, twin-turbo diesel with 204hp and 300 ft-lbs of torque. And very frugal. This would be the engine for me!
The 320d and 325d (as it is called in europe, same as the above) would make a lot of sense to most. When gas hits $6-7/gallon, people will rush for cars like that.
