330i slightly quicker than the [untuned!] 330D. It is also lighter, smoother and not far off in terms of MPG - given the difference in cost between petrol and diesel, difference is negligible.

A mate has a 245BHP 330d auto - very impressive engine in its own right. In normal day-day driving the 330D feels quicker, however the 330i is better when being pushed.

..the irony of this is that I probably drive the 330i around slower than I did my old E46 320d (tuned - 184BHP). The real ace of the 330i is that it can cruise around in limo like smoothness and refinement, but can be knocked down 2 or 3 gears and it rips up the road and it snarls like a baby M3 up to 7,000 rpm. Love it!
