Back on topic, I have only driven a friend's '06 E320 CDI, but would love to drive a tuned version. There is no doubt that the big Merc diesel would be a very very nice car to drive. Although I am a fan of the 335d, I would be remiss if I didn't ask if you had driven the E350 Blutec? I have, and while the new W212 is still higher on the luxury scale than the E90, it didn't quite seem as nice as the W211.

In the end, I don't think you could do wrong with either a 335d or an E350 BT.

Regards
D.
The e350 engine is the exact same as mine (different numbering scheme, same exact engine and output), but the car is slightly heavier. I'm 28 and have no kids, so having a large car isn't really a concern at this point. If I were to go through the effort to get a new car, I'd want a different experience, and the new W212 basically offers the same package.

As for the 528i guy, they might be rated similarly by the EPA, but I can return upper 30s and low 40s if I drive conservatively (my best is 44.6 at 50MPH), which I doubt the 528i can. Additionally, that sweet TQ at low RPMs makes accelerating from 20-80 pretty fun.

Naaah, I am bringing back some common sense because some North American diesel drivers live on another planet, and love to think that their toy is the end-of-it-all.

But hey, if the OP says he wants a diesel just because he enjoys that particular gadget, that's honest and that's the end of the story, whatever some retards up there are writing.

Based on this, the 335d may very well be exactly what you're looking for, DubVBenz.

Driven smoothly at posted highway speeds, I have seen consistent 42-44 mpg (US). My mixed average is 32-33 mpg (US), representing a 2/3s 1/3 split between highway and city driving.

, the correct idiom is "the be-all and end-all."

The "end-of-it-all" would be The Rapture, and has recently been rescheduled to October 21, 2011.

I'd say go for it! I've driven the ML350 bluetec (same engine with E320 CDI I'm assuming) and I think that BMW's diesel is more refined.
