According to Wikipedia, 0-60 for a 123d is 7.0 seconds and for a 330i/Ci it's 6.3 (5.8 for the ZHP). Even a 128i has the same 0-60 as a 330.

really guys, no here has even seen the new vision concept? that's a 3pot diesel hybrid and it does 0-60 in 4.5 sec and gets 62mpg!
don't get wrong, nothing pulls like an 8, 10, or 12. but fossil fuels won't be around for ever.

Im sorry, but having an Aston Martin DB9 on the drive and not driving it is a bit like having Keira Knightley in your bed and sleeping on the couch. If youve got even half a scrotum its not going to happen.

its about time. BMW engines are all great 4 cylinder included. Too many people on a forum like this are all power/performance or nothing, but for the mainstream these smaller, but still relatively quick engines will be fine.
