    If fuel economy is important to you 335d, if you want something that you can easily make very quick then 335 and will be an easy sell in the future then 335.

    335i comes in manual, no manual for 335d but you get a shitton of torque.

    Mileage is a bit high on both but I would go with the newer 335D.

    Those are some pretty high KM cars, I hope you're getting a wicked deal.

    If you chip the 335i, doesn't it get similar torque to the diesel?

    Both are a blast to drive.. the only thing I sort of dislike about the diesel is the 5 speed auto transmission, although it is well mated to the engine.

    If I were in your position I would choose the diesel, it's more rare than the 335i too and the stock rims are sweet.

    I'd say better aftermarket support and DIY's for 335i engine, BUT you'd be crazy to get a high KM 335i or 335d in general

    These KM's are too high and I would not touch it without factory warranty or Certified Pre-Owned BMW warranty

    Well the 335i will cost me about $10000

    The 335D will cost me $15500

    So i figured they were decently priced for non rebuilt cars with good histories but yeah some higher KM

    Diesel...

    I've owned a few diesel cars (VW's) but nothing with a decent sized motor.

    Something like a 335 with a good sized diesel would be awesome, only thing is buying something used I would probably stay away from diesel. If the previous owner was a diesel nut than it probably is okay, but most North Americans don't know how to take care of a diesel and if you don't let it warm up properly the bills will get out of control.

    That being said if you take care of it they last forever. I had a Passat TDI that had over 650,000kms with no maintenance other than brakes and tires that ran like new until my cousin borrowed it and hit a guard rail with it.

    I used to fill up in Calgary and drive to Vancouver and still have a 1/4 tank in that car. Only vehicle I ever ran out of fuel in. You would re-fuel it every 5 or 6 weeks so I stopped even looking at the gauge.

    For that price, buy both and resell them. Shouldnt have a problem making a quick buck.

    I had a Dinan stage one 335xi for a while and I loved it. With Hankook winters it was a snowplow.

    The oil burner is a way cool car though -- the only concern is that maintenance on the diesel is likely quite a bit higher.
