BMW 330d vs BMW335i

April 8,

‘Years from now, will look back at the and specifically its mighty engine as the car changed conventional thinking. the next M3 be turbocharged? Looking at the one is tempted to say something like: have seen the future”.’ unquote topCar December

It would be presumptuous to say ‘told you We’ll save that for BMW finally confirms the rumours the next M3 will have a engine under the bonnet.

It so much sense. After a with our 335i four-door termer, we’ll happily to the charms of the twin-turbo six-cylinder Not only is there virtually no lag, but the lighter, smaller means better fuel and less CO 2 emissions than its capacity brethren.

Lighter means it’s faster and the better. It was Colin Chapman who ‘Adding power makes you on the straights. Subtracting weight you faster everywhere.’

So the 335i, the practical four-door sedan, has for us much epitomised the ultimate machine for the family man an incredible and superb handling for only 500.

But change is the only in the motoring world. Nobody can on their laurels. There’s a to the crown and it’s yet another litre six-cylinder turbocharged but this one burns diesel of petrol.

It’s the brand new 330d and within hours of at the topCar office it has us re-evaluating our to the 335i.

WHISPER, DON’T

We’re standing behind the pit at Killarney Race Track as the comes hurtling past us on the straight at an indecent speed. of the howling scream of a petrol we’re all addicted to hearing at the there’s just the steady of an unstressed diesel and the swoosh of air forced out of the way as the car muscles past.

must be what it sounds at Le Mans when the Audi R10 and the Peugeot 908HDi’s waft than scream past vantage point, brushing the petrol competitors out of the way.

We’re busy with a petrol vs diesel race of our own as our test engineer Peter rolls into the pit lane, his window and nods his helmeted affirmatively. This means the has impressed him as well, as we knew it

Yes, the new 3 Series has new bonnet new L-shaped taillights, new headlamps, kidneys and curvier mirrors. And the new iDrive system is a hundred better than before. now so easy and intuitive even I use it to sync my mobile phone, songs on my iPod and change the settings in seconds.

But BMWs are appreciated on the road from the wheel, so the big news is the newly six cylinder diesel engine in particular car. It’s a

Take a look at the numbers: @ 4000r/min, 520Nm @ 1 750-3 0-100km/h in a claimed 6.1 seconds, max limited to 250km/h, average consumption of 6.3ℓ per 100km and CO 2 of only 167g/km.

That’s impressive, but it’s not even to how good it feels in the driver’s Acceleration is effortless and with the Steptronic transmission doing the for you, a prod of the right is enough to send you surging on a torque tsunami. If you want to gears yourself, you can use the paddleshifts on the steering wheel.

The handling is as well. So good, in fact, it reminded us of our trusty 335i termer. And why wouldn’t it. It’s a 3 Beemer after all. Do the

One fast 330d plus one 335i equals some track time at Killarney.

THE DON’T LIE

At R47 000 less than the and with some seriously performance claims on its spec we wanted to see how close it can really run its sibling. That means the gamut of performance testing, as as the ultimate decider timed hot around the race track.

The 335i’s figures are equally 225kW @ 5 800r/min, 400Nm at 0-100km/h in a claimed 5.6 seconds, max limited to 250km/h, average consumption of 9.6 litres per 100km and CO 2 of 231g/km.

Peter is bang on the with the acceleration tests, the claimed times and proving the petrol does the dash a second faster that its counterpart. Then it’s to the real test, where the reserve of twist available to the might just help to it out of the corners faster than the and on to a quicker lap time. Then the 335i might have Newtons, but what’s there is from 1300 all the way up to 5000r/min.

is going to be good.

The format is a lap, followed by two hot laps, by a cool-down lap. First up is the There’s no screaming engine, no tyres.

The absence of fuss is as Peter hurls it around the It doesn’t look or sound fast. But it is. He clocks a best of 1.30.89.

It’s almost a second faster than our lap in an Audi RS4 last year and slightly slower than our in a BMW M3 and Mercedes-Benz C63. Different Different time of the day, but this is a diesel, for crying out

It’s clear the 335i has a job to do. It has an ace up its sleeve: BMW’s M Sports But will it be enough to avoid any

As it comes howling past us on its hot lap, one of the team behind the pit chirps: ‘Now that’s an engine should sound The 335i clearly has a loyal at topCar, and it rewards that with a best lap of 1.29.39 not trouncing the diesel but at least it, even if by only 1.5 seconds.

The make even more when I take the cars the track myself. I drive the more intuitively, the throttle is to modulate and my gear selection secure. If I had to choose a car for a track it would have to be the 335i.

But the diesel’s sterling track sans any lowered or stiffened is boosted by its real world of use. It might not have the suspension, but that means the more comfortable. Then the R47 000 price difference, and the fact hard to ignore its fuel and emissions credentials.

Even our morning of pedal-to-the-metal testing, it returned average figures of per 100km on that particular of fuel.

The 335i might be king on the track, but on the road, for me, the now rules. The King is …. live the King

February 2, 2009

‘Years now, enthusiasts will back at the 335i – and specifically its engine – as the car that changed thinking. Will the next M3 be Looking at the 335i, one is tempted to say like: “I have seen the Quote, unquote topCar 2007.

It would be presumptuous to say you so!’ We’ll save for when BMW finally confirms the that the next M3 will a blown engine under the It makes so much sense. a year with our 335i long termer, we’ll testify to the charms of the twin-turbo engine.

Not only is there no turbo lag, but the lighter, engine means better economy and less CO2 emissions its bigger capacity brethren. also means it’s and the handling’s better. It was Colin who said: ‘Adding power you faster on the straights.

Subtracting makes you faster everywhere.’ So the specifically the practical four-door has for us pretty much epitomised the driving machine for the family man – an engine and superb handling for R477 000.

But change is the constant in the motoring world. can rest on their laurels. a pretender to the crown and it’s yet three litre six-cylinder Beemer, but this one burns instead of petrol.

It’s the brand spanking new and within hours of delivery at the office it has us re-evaluating our attachment to the

WHISPER, DON’T SHOUT

standing behind the pit wall at Race Track as the 330d hurtling past us on the main at an indecent speed. Instead of the scream of a petrol engine all addicted to hearing at the track, just the steady thrum of an diesel and the swoosh of air being out of the way as the car muscles past.

This be what it sounds like at Le when the Audi R10 TDI’s and the 908HDi’s waft rather scream past your point, brushing the vocal competitors out of the way.

We’re with a little petrol vs race of our own as our road test Peter Henkel rolls the pit lane, lowers his window and his helmeted head affirmatively. means the 330d has impressed him as as we knew it would.

Yes, the new 3 has new bonnet creases, new L-shaped new headlamps, deeper kidneys and mirrors. And yes, the new iDrive is a hundred times better before. It’s now so easy and even I could use it to sync my phone, find songs on my and change the light settings in

But BMWs are best appreciated on the from behind the wheel, so the big is the newly developed six cylinder engine in this particular It’s a beauty.

Take a at the numbers: 180kW @ 4000r/min, @ 1 750-3 000r/min, 0-100km/h in a 6.1 seconds, max speed limited to average fuel consumption of per 100km and CO2 emissions of only

That’s pretty impressive, but not even close to how good it in the driver’s seat. Acceleration is and with the six-speed Steptronic doing the shifting for you, a of the right foot is enough to you surging forward on a torque If you want to change gears you can use the paddleshifts mounted on the steering

The handling is good as well. So in fact, that it reminded us of our 335i long termer. And why it. It’s a 3 Series Beemer all. Do the math.

One fast plus one fast 335i some serious track at Killarney.

THE NUMBERS DON’T LIE

At R45 000 than the 335i and with seriously impressive performance on its spec sheet, we wanted to see how it can really run its petrol sibling. means the whole gamut of testing, as well as the ultimate – timed hot laps around the track.

The 335i’s figures are impressive: 225kW @ 5 800r/min, at 1300-5000r/min, 0-100km/h in a claimed 5.6 max speed limited to 250km/h, fuel consumption of 9.6 litres per and CO2 emissions of 231g/km. Peter is on the money with the acceleration equalling the claimed times and that the petrol does the half a second faster its diesel counterpart.

Then down to the real test, the huge reserve of twist to the 330d might just to power it out of the corners faster the 335i, and on to a quicker lap time. again, the 335i might less Newtons, but what’s is delivered from 1300 all the way up to This is going to be good.

The is a warm-up lap, followed by two hot followed by a cool-down lap. up is the diesel. There’s no screaming no squealing tyres.

The absence of is remarkable as Peter hurls it the track. It doesn’t look or that fast. But it is. He clocks a time of 1.30.89. It’s half a second faster our lap time in an Audi RS4 last and only slightly slower our times in a BMW M3 and Mercedes-Benz C63.

Different driver. Different of the day, but still … this is a for crying out loud! It’s the 335i has a job to do.

It has an extra ace up its sleeve: M Sports suspension. But will it be to avoid any humiliation?

As it comes past us on its first hot lap, one of the behind the pit wall chirps: that’s what an engine sound like.’ The 335i has a loyal following at topCar, and it that loyalty with a lap of 1.29.39 – not exactly trouncing the but at least beating it, even if by 1.5 seconds. The numbers make more sense when I the cars around the track

I drive the petrol more the throttle is easier to modulate and my selection more secure. If I had to a car for a track shootout, it would to be the 335i. But the diesel’s sterling performance – sans any lowered or suspension – is boosted by its real ease of use.

It might not the trick suspension, but that the ride’s more comfortable. there’s the R45 000 price difference, and the it’s hard to ignore its sipping and emissions credentials. after our morning of pedal-to-the-metal it still returned average of 8.2ℓ per 100km on that tank of fuel.

The 335i still be king on the track, but on the for me, the 330d now rules. The King is Long live the King.
