Reading what other people post, there does not seem to be much between the 335i and 335d but I guess that will vary hugely to how and where you are driving.
tbf i am a very gentle driver and the 335d needs very little throttle to move it ive not seen less than 30mpg all the time ive had it and that was when the egr thermo was playing up. ive driven a manual 335i with the perf exhaust and although the sound id adictive i love the way the diesel drives and would prefer economy over the sound
