this may be true, but i remember reading that the 335d has an auto that is different from the 335.
as i remember, the disel auto tranny is rated for alot more torque.

maybe the way to go is with aftermarket turbos and /or other mods that get us past (say) 550+ whp,
... then someone needs to gp and buy a 335 disel auto tranny and see how it works in a N54 335 ??
If your car isn't scary - it's just not fast enough !
