328d lease $379 month

I saw BMW is running a promo for a 328d for $379 a month(lease), not a bad deal, all I think of is how many people are going to put gas in instead of diesel...

When you open the fuel door it has many warnings that say diesel fuel and also a fueling restrictor.

Believe me, there are plenty of idiots out there that'll ignore those warnings.

I might go this route in about a year...think i want to go back to economical daily driver and weekend garage queen...while I really liked driving M3 as a DD hated going to gas station all the time...hence I got the 335D...well now I have an S4 and this car doesn't get great gas mileage either...spending 600-700 a month on gas now and going to gas station like 3 times a week.

328D for dd sounding more appealing now...was going to get the new M3 but now thinking GTR or Cayman GTS for weekend car.

While the 335D was a decent car, it isn't quite this either....

In the VW TDI you would not believe how many people have done this, in the thousands, mostly wives borrowing the car trying to put fuel in, gas of course...

Get the Cayman. Spec it with sport suspension and a 6 speed and it will be nearly as good as a Cayman R.

So I test drove another 328D today, and agin I would rather keep 20g in my pocket and get a VW Passat or Jetta, tdi...The 335d is on a whole other planet than the 328d, gas mpg vs gas mpg and power...
