The E90 is sportier looking (to me ), has sportier suspension, sportier steering, but it's "outdated"...
A new E90 320d used to retail at about $66,000 OTR so an $8,000 off is kinda sweet and forcing me to go for the E90 and despite all the new factor the F30 has, the E90 is more of a enthusiast's ride and has more raw muscle.

Nice That's what I'm gonna do buddy! Most probably!

The diesel motor in the current and the upcoming 320d is exactly the same. And the current one costs $8,000 less with all those driving dynamics so......
