I dont think so. It says on BMWs website "turbo with variable vane geometry".
Also, if it was two turbos it would be a lot more than 256bhp.

It looks like the same engine as fitted to the 530d. Now the 535d does say "twin turbo" on their website. I'd guess this would be the same engine fitted to a possible 335d.

Interesting point to note the the 330d 0-60 is now virtually identical to the 335i.

Maybe that could be addressed with a possible M335i at some point (like the one series M135i) with the same 320bhp power unit? That would probably see the 0-60 down to low 5 seconds............................... but then theres the 335d.........

All speculation though..........

I think that could be a tad optimistic. Would mean a future M3 would have to be 0-60 in 4 secs or less. And we know BMW never make the M3 be be quicker than the M5 (current versions, that is).

I was wondering about that - miss lead by the "BMW TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder in-line diesel engine" - so this is just a single turbo?

Thanks

I think this kind of explains it...........

The "TwinPower Turbo" moniker initially denoted engines that utilize a twin-scroll turbocharger which was unveiled in 2009 (the calendar year, not the model year) with the N55 and N74 being the first engines to use this technology.[2] Nonetheless, BMW has started to apply the TwinPower label retroactively to earlier turbocharged engines that are still in production like the N54 and N63, although they do not use twin-scroll technology.[3] The N55 is the only single turbo engine in BMW's lineup as of the 2010 model year.

55mpg ! I doubt you would get anywhere near that with everyday driving.

I had a 320 f30 sport for the weekend. What a car! Sorry guys but the e90 is not in the same class as the f30 and the build quality is superb. Its similar to comparing an e46 to an e90.

Exactly - I love my E90 but that doesn't mean I'd not want something better if I could afford it!

I normally change my cars when they're about 3/4 years old (exception was my CTR as I couldn't bare to part with it!) but with a second kid on the way and thought of loft conversions, the F30 is but a dream!

I have... in other threads on this forum. Perhaps not 'rave' but very positive... Certainly been very positive about the F30i 328i in my review on BMWLand.

Obviously there are mixed feelings on how a new model looks and feels. Impresssions form opinions, but is the quality really less than the E9* cars?

I've looked very critically at the F30, (and spent a few hours in a 328i) and I see it on a par with the E9* models for build, fit and finish. Different of course, but modern BMW.

Would I change my E91 for an F31? In a heartbeat. BMW have moved on in the right direction, IMO, and I've been living around BMWs for 40 years.
