Dreams really do come true. BMW 335d spotted on US soil.

Quote:
The upcoming BMW 335d has been spotted by the fellows at Autofiends near the Mojave Desert in California. As some of you might recall, the BMW 335d is supposedly going to be released in mid October, but our friends at Bimmerfile heard from another source that the launch date might be pushed back to December. We're trying to confirm these rumors and see exactly what BMW has planned for us.

For now, we know that the 3 and 5 series diesels have been driven around U.S and that they both meet the 50-states emission regulations. Also, the diesel bimmers will definitely be released for the U.S market as well, and this includes the X5d and X6d.

The BMW 335d in these spy photos is similar to the E90 facelift version we have seen for the past few months, but with a little bit of camouflage in the rear.

In the mean time, if you would like to find out what a wonderful car the 335d is, please read this review by an UK driver. BMW 335d.

Autofiends.com has some nice photos of a new 335d hot weather testing out in Death Valley. Interesting to finally see the AdBlue filler cap (circle in bumper) for the urea injection system in body color.

We have been hearing rumblings from sources and in the community that the 335d release has been moved from October to December, though this has yet to be confirmed.

From the rear angle shots they were able to obtain you can see the new rear bumper fascia and body lines. There appears to be some change to the area behind the Hoffmeister kink in addition to the lights and bumper.

Isn't diesel gas more expensive then regular petrol? Also the performance of that 335d is about 14.8 in the quarter.. so not to quick. Hopefully it won't be priced insanely expensive..

Even if a gallon of diesel costs the same or more than a gallon of gas... a gallon of diesel will take you much farther.

From Edmunds: All that power doesn't torpedo the 335d's fuel economy, as BMW claims mileage figures of 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.

Diesel is a cheaper gas, the reason it is more expensive is because our government taxes the shit out of it.

A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.

I'd hit it, but the price tag will be more than the regular 335i

Diesel is about 15-20 cents per gallon more than premium in my area.

BMW USA MPG's

328i 19/28 city/highway
335i 17/26 city/highway
335d 23/33 city/highway

Just a rough estimate but based on a 16 gallon tank it will cost you about $3.20 more per fillup for diesel. But you will probably get around 400 miles per tank versus around 320 miles per tank.

an extra 80 miles for $3.20 extra. sounds reasonable to me, assuming this diesel is priced around the same as the 335i.

Ya could be just smoke and mirrors like the new iphone pricing coming out. It might sound cheaper but actually it costs more. Gotta wait till pricing comes out.

Very untrue. Its the capacity and our infrastructure that we currently can't produce enough diesel here in the US as we are not geared really to produce it. If you look at prices of diesel in Europe you will see that it's not that cheap. It's been going up at a much quicker rate than gasoline.
