Original Poster. Search My Stuff What's New 3 12 24 BMW d confirmation? Not sure where the bhp output has come from, sounds similar to the i.
So could it be that the d will be introduced shortly in the USA, and make its way over here? Methane Bloke posts months. My local dealer told me some time ago that the 1 series coupe would be offered with the sequential turbo six cylinder diesel from the d. He also suggested that a V8 diesel three series was on the cards as well. He has normally been accurate with his predictions. Regards Chris.
Beemer-5 7, posts months. BMW don't do a 3. They don't do a 3. That beeb article has totally misunderstood the moniker. I dont think we will ever see a V8 Diesel in a 3er. Remember they are much heavier than there petrol coupterparts and it would upset the balance on the car. I didnt say it would not fit. Im saying it would be too heavy a car. All that weight would un-settle the car surely.
Who knows. I said the engine could be mounted further back due to packaging. This affects the centre of gravity and balance of the car.
The V8 actually has advantages in terms of polar moments of intertia, but let's not go there. Oh okay,thanks for the very brief technical schpeil.
Lets hope they do a V8 TT Denzel then for the 3er. Love you too.Not bad for a 3-litre diesel…. Nail the throttle and, virtually from tickover to the red line, this sober-looking BMW d delivers proper performance-car grunt.
The key to the muscularity of its straight-six diesel is the sequential nature of its twin turbos: a smaller, lighter one spools up quickly to deliver boost at low revs before handing over, seamlessly, to a bigger one that delivers the volumes at higher revs. In the dry the d has little trouble using all lb ft — delivered from just rpm — to punch forward in dramatic style.
And it just keeps on charging forward. Hands on the wheel, your fingertips are perfectly placed, but the logic is different to the norm: both left and right paddles give upshifts at your fingertips, for downshifts you have to stretch a thumb to the paddle extensions that peep over the top of the steering wheel boss. As with the i, the ride is a bit jiggly at town speeds, but over a flowing road the d rides smoothly, feeling poised and precise.
Here the steering weight is well-judged, which is in contrast to town speeds, where it is artificially heavy. Overall the i feels a little sweeter dynamically, but the d is a fine and very fast car.

The answer is the 1 Series coupe and convertible. The idea seems to be one of taking all of the performance prowess of the sportier versions of the 3 Series and distilling it into a smaller but full flavored car. In some ways the is a return to BMW's first hit in America, the That car too was predicated upon a lightweight and compact build with an emphasis on handling dynamics, backed by adequate power from the engine bay.
Far from being a "shrunken 3" the is rather like an unofficial homage to the earlier car. The is exactly the kind of point and shoot performer that built BMW's reputation among driving aficionados in the s.
The sold well and so too should the The inside of the also evokes the well constructed but minimalist interiors of BMWs past. Yes, there are completely modern touches such as a push button ignition switch and and informational binnacle on the top of the center of the dash with its ConnectDrive control down on the transmission well.
However, classical black plastic with simple curves dominates the cockpit. The 's driver's environment is nearly identical in its layout to the larger 3 Series, but seems less busy and more elemental. There is not a hint of wood in sight. If the leaves you with a feeling that it is all business, it's likely that was intentional on the part of the company. It seems that BMW wants to give you its signature blend of performance in the fashion of a cup of black coffee.
It is when you open the hood or step on the accelerator that you realize just how well BMW has done. The car uses variations of the previous 3 Series' I-6 engines, producing anywhere from BHP via turbocharging, depending upon if you get the i or the is respectively.
The most impressive thing about BMW's mating of twin scroll turbocharging to this famous straight six power plant is that the motor just pulls and then pulls some more, being able to muster ft-lbs of torque at just RPM. With six manual gear ratios to stir through, that easily summoned torque is the calling card of this type. Despite this undeniably good serving of the BMW experience, the company has ensured that the shouldn't cannibalize its bigger coupe and convertible siblings.Privacy Terms.

We're sorry for any inconvenience, but the site is currently unavailable.
All I ask for is a d 5 door, in the US by when I move back there. Now have a d coupe and An also an E28 thanks grandad. I assume the 35d engine is heavier than the 35i lump inc.
Already the d is almost an enthusiast choice, most "normal" people jump form the d to the 3-series if they want a diesel. I imagine that even the d is more a image statement than a good business for BMW, don't see a lot of them Of course the weight distribution plays in too E81 d - gone but not forgotten GT86 "Never drive faster than you can see". Far more refined that 4 cylinders and loads more torque and top end performance. I got bored very easily of it to be fair.

Board index All times are UTC.A brand new 2. A highly sophisticated new part-time four-wheel drive system that generates enough traction to make your hair fall out. Plus an appealing new design, inside and out, that includes one of the most advanced communication packages ever seen in a small to medium-size car. And if you dive a little deeper into its specifications, things get better still.
The engine may only be a 2. So the i is quick with a capital Q. At the same time, its new engine is some 35kg lighter than the old straight-six turbo from the outgoing Mi, and is much more efficient as a result, with a claimed combined fuel consumption figure of On the move the transition is undetectable. Instead the i xDrive seems to deliver per cent traction at all times, seemingly on any surface and under any throttle load. Yet the whole time the system is monitoring whether you need all-wheel drive or not, and switches the rear axle on or off accordingly, thereby using the minimum amount of energy in the process.
Hence the excellent fuel and emissions claims. And the monster performance. Not quite, for although the handling, steering, brakes, traction, specification and interior design are all very much the right side of excellent, the same cannot quite be said of the performance.
No, the issue is all about character, about the way the car delivers its thrust.BMW 135i + V8 Equals WOW - /TUNED
Which is to say, it just feels a little bit ordinary somehow, a little bit anodyne in its delivery, mainly because the engine never really sings, not even if you rev it up to 6,rpm and beyond. Nor does the exhaust make an especially memorable noise. Which is a shame, because the eight-speed auto gearbox works brilliantly in all its modes, the mid-range torque is borderline sensational, and the grip on offer is always surprising.
With a bit more va-va-voom from the engine, the i xDrive would go straight to the top of its class. New Tesla Roadster: electric car prices, specs and release date. Skip to Content Skip to Footer.

Driver Power. Skip to Header Skip to Content.By Paul Hudson. We'll say at once that it's a shame, because this car offers all the performance you'll ever need on a public road without any of the "look at me" bullishness of the admittedly brilliant M cars.
By the way, don't be confused by the i's M designation, which refers more to the sporting styling addenda than to its being a product of BMW's M for motorsport division. That's not to say that it's merely a styling exercise, however — anything with a twin-turbocharged straight-six engine and wearing a BMW badge has to be taken seriously. First impressions are of a very compact, squat machine, smart and classy without being overt.
The feeling continues in the cabin, where everything has a solid feel. The chunky steering wheel exemplifies this, as does the precision of the gearlever.
It's all quite sombre but beautifully wrought, a special kind of German functionality that BMW has made its speciality. It's worth remembering, however, that tall items can't be carried because of the solid brace between the rear wheel arches.

There's a superb feel to the major controls, solid and unflappable. For instance, the steering initially feels quite heavy but on the move it's that translates to wonderful precision. At low speeds the brakes seem disinterested, but once up to speed the six-piston calipers at the front haul off speed without fuss. Want to stop more rapidly?
Just press the pedal harder and the response is linear and predictable. It makes you wonder why other manufacturers seem unable to make car controls so precise.
Then there's the way it goes, the urge building in intensity as soon as the turbos stir. By 1,rpm in any gear the torque hits and the motor spins lustily, the characteristic snarl turning into a ripping, shredding rasp. That sound intensifies as the revs rise, encouraging you to explore the farther reaches of the throttle pedal's travel. It's what BMW sixes are all about, and partially explains why the company is a perennial winner of various Engine of the Year accolades. Yet it's also extremely civilised.
Such is the remarkable breadth of the latest turbocharging technology. On paper it compares well with the twin-turbocharged M, with only 34bhp and 37lb ft less, the same electronically limited top speed and a mph acceleration time slower by 0.
With a ride that's more forgiving over Britain's crumbling highways and styling that's somewhat more restrained, it makes for a compelling alternative. So when your local BMW dealer informs you that the 1 M is sold out, don't despair. At three-quarters of the price the i still feels like every bit the thoroughbred BMW performance machine.
