(Plus I have never started a poll) 8)

The D3 is my first diesel and must say I am very impressed with both performance and economy. I realise that the D3 is the entry level Alpina but it never fails to put a smile on my face. 8)

V-power only for my B3

Slightly O/T but I had a hire car in France a fortnight ago. A Clio Staitionwagon. 1.4D engine. Managed to get 32 yes only 32 mpg out of the wee thing and only had Mrs Ali and the 2 x kids in the back. I was expecting moon miles like 50mpg so actually I think the B3 is better than modern diesels

Roadster S - petrol
BMW 118d - diesel

Both have their benefits and drawbacks, as do most things, and we're lucky to have the choice and try to use each for the things they are best at.
