is 330d faster than 330i?


Asked by Jul 10, 2009 at 07:00 AM about the BMW 3 Series

Question type: General

3 Answers




it depends!!! outright acceleration from 0-100kmh, the 330i would be faster, higher revs. If both cars were travelling at 100kmh, the 330d would be faster because it has way more torque. I have a remapped 330d, which has 40 more bhp than standard and this would be faster full stop. Turbo cars are great for increasing power unlike normally aspirated cars. ie 330i. I also get between 45 - 55 mpg unlike any petrol car


err no..add modifications..performance exhaust,headers, cold air intake, underdrive pulley & software giving more power in mid RPM range, other than that the petrol far more fun for 0-100km sprints....:)
