Probably due to the ridiculous amount of torque it generates. I'm pretty sure that's why it also only comes in the automatic. I think I read somewhere that the manual BMW uses can't handle the torque so I'm only guessing but they probably don't have a strong enough torque converter to distribute the power to all the wheels.

Oops. That is funny. "i" and "d" are mutually exlusive aren't they.

I'd be quite satisfied with the 330d X-drive wagon (which they do make, but don't import to the US).

The 330d has Much better gas milage than the 335d, same 0-60 time as the 335D, better rolling acceleration than the 335i, and comes with a stick.

What more could I want?

BMW North American CEO Jim O'Donnell is trying to bring an AWD 3-series diesel to the states by 2011...

If I could buy a 330xd in a wagon and a 6-speed manual, I would be at the dealer tomorrow picking out options and colors.

Come on BMW, just offer them as factory order cars only that was you aren't sitting on stock. I have no issues waiting 4-5 months for my new car to arrive, I have done it before.

The diesel is a lot slower.

Real world driving is not about 0-60 times, it is about merging onto the freeway and passing.

That is where the diesel shines and outshines the gas motors. I cold care less about 0-60 times.

The perfect alternative to a thirsty SUV. Fast, agile, frugal and useful, why would anyone buy an SUV or any other family car for that matter?

I've driven both the 335xi and the 335d and from my first hand experience there is a significant difference between both cars. I'd prefer 335xi or i for more of a sporty feel and 335d if I was really concerned with mpg.
