Diesel Power 2009 BMW 335d @ 2008 Detroit Auto Show

POSTED BY admin on Sep 17 under Hybrid Cars

www.edmunds.com In case you haven’t noticed, German’s carmakers aren’t big on the idea of hybrids. Sure, BMW and Mercedes-Benz collaborated with GM on the two-mode hybrid transmission, but what they would really like to sell you is a car like the 2009 BMW 335d. Yes, that “d” stands for diesel and although BMW already sells several diesel models in Europe, only now has emissions technology advanced enough to get the EPA’s seal of approval in all 50 states.

    the stupid BMW dealers here in australia didnt bring diesel powered BMW 6cyl sedans untill late 2006, i bet dealers here in aust will make us wait 3 years until we get the 335d ! ! !just doesnt make sense, they r stupid

    Isn’t true. . In some countrys is more cheap because is more used, in others don’t, like switzerland. It depend of the country only.

    You guys in the u.s must be gutted as the euro version has 286hp and 440lb/ft as standard. Just had mine re maped and it’s now 350hp and 540lb/ft. Traction is the only issue now, so i,m running it on 285/25 20 rears which does help but i wish bmw would fit lsd’s to their m sport models and not just the M versions. The euro cars have slightly different styling too.

    Diesel Power

    Twin-turbo is far more responsive and fuel efficient. It is only as reliable as the engineers who designed them and the materials that were used to make everything.

  10. jsizzlewildcard September 17, 2010 4:38 pm

    not the ultra low sulfur diesel and they produce more gasoline which has driven down the supply of diesel or so the powers that be tell us that

  11. jsizzlewildcard September 17, 2010 4:51 pm

    i am a diesel mechanic and i would say hell yes twins are worth it you get no lag and the power of a big turbo best of both worlds although there are more moving parts the benefits far outweigh the risk

  12. mosquiton001 September 17, 2010 5:05 pm

    one single question… are this twin turbo engines reliable?? or it’s better to stick to the old single turbo type??

    I am really unsure if they are worth the extra money or not (sure they are on paper but what in the long run??)

    stupe fuckers

  14. AJG77777 September 17, 2010 5:54 pm

    I own one and I love it when i said not in Cal i meant that diesel is cheaper than gas and car can go 600 miles on one tank on highway. LOVE the torque too.

  15. ButchE30M3S14 September 17, 2010 6:22 pm

    Pertol cheaper then diesel? Weird… because diesel is a less refined product of crude oil so cheaper to produce…

  16. ButchE30M3S14 September 17, 2010 6:25 pm

    It tels us that the 335i engine of the year was picked on emotional aspects.

  17. maplecustom99 September 17, 2010 6:55 pm

    i think ever car should be diesel
    they last so long on gas and there powerful too
    you can cruise straight up a hill with out giving it and more throttle

    Youre a joke

  21. GameAngel September 17, 2010 8:25 pm

    Then you asume wrong rofl, getting the Mercedes C-class 2008 next year which costs almost 60.000 euro, 250cdi – amg kit and all the options.

  22. therealdeal989 September 17, 2010 8:49 pm

    Im assuming you will never afford a $67,000 car.

  23. drewdude320i September 17, 2010 9:11 pm

    Lamborghini used to make some pretty ugly tractors and even a pickup – so you should probably have a go at them too. And Porsche for the Panamera, and Alfa for the Mito…….

    Every car company has a minger, but who cares?

  24. randomhero1172 September 17, 2010 9:28 pm

    Me too! Thinking about a 335d after my jetta dies .. which may be in another 300K miles lol

  25. randomhero1172 September 17, 2010 10:10 pm

    Ethanol is a terrible fuel. Less stored energy than gasoline and WAY less than diesel. Also cuts into corn crops and other food crops. Not a good economic affect on our economy. Also, the diesel revolution is upon us – we will soon see all car companies offer a diesel option like in Europe. Diesel engines always offer better fuel economy, better torque, and much better longevity and reliability than its equivalent gasoline counterpart. with fuel demand low, ethanol is struggling big time!
